We are thrilled to announce that the highly anticipated 2023 Bake-Off is making a triumphant return, and this time, it’s in-person and brimming with inspiration from our Summer Season. Distinguished playwright, essayist, and poet Sarah Ruhl will be at the heart of this event. With a MacArthur “Genius” Award under her belt, two Pulitzer Prize nominations, and a Tony Award nomination, Sarah Ruhl brings a wealth of creativity to the table. She will carefully curate a selection of ingredients that will challenge both HVSF and our Bake-Off participants to craft something truly extraordinary.

In preparation for the Community Bake-Off on November 11 & 12, we invite our neighbors to participate in free community Playwriting Workshops this September! Everyone has an idea for a story; don’t miss the chance to bring your story to life! Led by Christine Scarfuto, Acting Director of the MFA playwriting program at Hunter College, these two-hour workshops will feature exercises that teach citizen writers the basics of playwriting and storytelling.

Presented in partnership with Mid-Hudson Library System, The Julia L. Butterfield Library, Desmond Fish Library, and Warner Library (Tarrytown, NY),
