Presenting the 2016 Season at Seagle Colony
After a huge centennial season in 2015, the crew at Seagle Music Colony have planned yet another ambitious season of performances for 2016.
Saturday, June 25 at 8:00 pm, the traditional concert Old Friends and New will introduce this year’s crop of 32 talented young singers to Schroon Lake, at the Oscar Seagle Memorial Theater on the SMC campus, Charley Hill Road.
The 2016 mainstage season at Seagle Colony includes two favorite musicals, a traditional comic opera and an exciting world premiere.
July 6-9, Loesser’s The Most Happy Fella, will be presented - with a matinee performance onJuly 8.
July 20-23, enjoy Donizetti’s comic opera, The Elixir of Love, sung in Italian with projected English supertitles, with a matinee on July 22.
Seagle is excited to present the world premiere of Roscoe by composer Evan Mack and librettist Joshua McGuire, based on the novel of the same name by Pulitzer Prize winning Albany author William Kennedy. The opera will be presented August 3-6 with a matinee performance onAugust 5.
“The world premiere will be a highlight of the season, and we couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the first year of our second century than with something that’s never been performed anywhere else,” said Tony Kostecki, SMC General Director.
"We’re thinking of this premiere as something that will be another real milestone in our history, and are excited for our audiences to see it, and for our young artists to perform it.”
Rounding out the mainstage season is the perennial favorite The Music Man by Meredith Willson, which will be presented August 17-20 with a matinee on August 19.
