Brewster Theater Company Presents: "The Librarian"
Thursday, April 30th, 7:00pm - The Armchair Actors wing of the Brewster Theater Company will present a reading of "The Librarian." “The Librarian” was one of a series of "documentary" broadcasts entitled AMERICANS AT WORK, started on April 28th, 1938, in cooperation with the new CBS Adult Education Board. Every week the Columbia Broadcasting System brought you the human story behind the job – a glimpse into the lives and work of the people who keep our everyday world in order – Americans at Work. Audience members are encouraged to participate and may request a copy of the script and director Patricia Sebastian will assign a role before the program begins. Paired with this reading, some of the BTC actors will perform some short monologues. Click here to register or call 845-279-6421.
This event is made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NY State Legislature and with public funds from Putnam County. These grant programs are managed and monitored by the Putnam Arts Council.
