The Ridgefield Playhouse in Ridgefield, CT is proud to present comedian Paula Poundstone in concert Friday. 25 years ago Paula Poundstone climbed on a Greyhound bus and traveled across the country -- stopping in at open mic nights at comedy clubs as she went. A high school drop-out, she went on to become one of the great humorists of our time.
On September 6, the Ridgefield Theater Barn opened its 2013-2014 Season with this bracing and critically acclaimed play. August: Osage County is a portrait of the dysfunctional
American family at its finest—and absolute worst. When the patriarch of the
Weston clan disappears one hot summer night, the family reunites at the
Oklahoma homestead, where long-held secrets are unflinchingly and uproariously revealed. This play is showing Saturday evening.
Since 1974, the Ridgefield Guild of Artists has offered members
and non-members alike the chance to have their art work judged on-site by a highly-qualified juror. RGA’s Annual Juried Show provides a venue for both established and emerging artists. It
is a jewel in the crown of events that the Guild offers each year, and
our beautiful galleries brim with works of all sizes, shapes and
colors. The opening reception is 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday.
