About Us

Actors Theatre Of Woodstock

The  Actors Theatre of Woodstock was created in 2017 by actor and playwright  Anthony Giaimo to develop and produce new works that truthfully explore  topics on the fringe of the human condition. They are currently housed  at the historic Bearsville Theater in Woodstock, NY.


Our inaugural production, CURTAINS FOR MYRON premieres on June 8, 2018 at 8PM and runs Wed-Sat at 8PM through June 23 with two Sunday matinees on June 17 and June 24 at 2PM. Tickets are $35 each.


Starring Anthony Giaimo*, Michael Iannucci*, Susan Cella* and Tina Keyes and directed by Kevin Cutts, this dark new comedy centers around Myron, an aging Mafia gumbah wannabe and Jerry, his over the hill gay actor brother. These polar opposites humorously litigate old wrongs and cruelly open new wounds. The day spirals out of control when a visit from Myron's hooker girlfriend and his troubled daughter expose some guarded family secrets. Hounded by the police, Myron takes matters (and a semi-automatic pistol) into his own hands. Strong language, +18 yrs.


*Appearing Courtesy of Actor's Equity Association, the Union of  Professional Actors and Stage Managers in the United States, appearing  under a Special Appearance Contract.
