Ticonderoga The Ticonderoga Festival Guild President’s Party will be held Saturday, July 14, at 4 p.m. at the Ti Knights of Columbus.
Sue Liddell, president of the Ticonderoga Festival Guild, has chosen the program. The Adirondack Shakespeare Company will present “The Course of True Love.”
Hors d’oeuvres will be offered and a cash bar will be available. Tickets are $15 each and are available from board members, by calling 585-7015 or by purchase at the door. An advance registration will be helpful in planning food quantities. The President’s Party is open to the public and is so named because the president chooses the format and program each year.
The Arts Trek program on Wednesday, July 17, is “The Three Little Pigs,” the 2013 children’s opera presented by the Seagle Colony.
The musical students from Schroon Lake will tell the old story with a new twist, completely in song. In their version, the “wise” little pig is a girl who studies house construction at the library, reinforcing the idea that reading is a good skill to have.
Arts Trek performances take place at the Knights of Columbus pavilion in Ticonderoga at 10:15 a.m. The programs are presented free to the community by donors and sponsors. The sponsor of this Arts Trek is the Rotary Club of Northern Lake George.
The Arts Treks are supported by grants from the Southern Lake Champlain Fund of the Vermont Community Trust, the International Paper Foundation, Essex Co. Dept. of Youth, North Country Cultural Center for the Arts (DEC), Charles R. Wood Foundation, Honeybee Community Fund, Wal-Mart Foundation, by donations from the Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union and from Stewart’s Shops, and by individual donors.
