Or, Cut The Old Moon Into Stars

It’s a familiar story: an indolent dreamer falls asleep high in the Catskills, wakes after twenty years, and returns to a world he doesn’t recognize. But in Seth Bockley’s new take on this old tale, Rip isn’t the only one rambling. In the New Dutch village of Falling Waters, we meet Rip’s adventurous daughter and her hard-working mother, tinkers, butchers, innkeepers, tall-tale-telling wives, a few seafaring ghosts, the bespectacled author behind the original story, and the beating heart of a community poised somewhere between the distant past and the not-so-distant future. This world premiere adaptation is the first-ever mainstage commission by Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival.

Night-Of Wait List

If you missed out on tickets during our releases, we recommend taking a chance the night of your preferred performance. While we can’t guarantee seats, it’s been our experience that we have never had to turn people away for a free show, so an on-site, night-of waitlist will be started two hours before showtime. Available seats/unclaimed tickets will be extended to the Wait List starting 20 minutes before showtime.

Contact the Box Office with any questions about the ticketing process: 845.265.9575 / boxoffice@hvshakespeare.org

Free Shuttle: Friday, Saturday, Monday

We’ve extended our free, round-trip shuttle from Cold Spring Train Station to include the Friday, Saturday, and Monday performances at the HVSF Theater Tent. Trips from the Train Station will run from 4:30pm – 6:30pm and again for 30 minutes following the performance. No reservation is required.

Be sure to exit the station at the parking lot (west of the tracks; for NYC arrivals, this requires crossing over the tracks), where the Shuttle will be waiting. The Shuttle is a black minivan with an HVSF emblem on both sides, driven by our staff member in blue. Do not exit the station onto Main Street. 

Please note that Shuttle service will not be offered for the Sunday, September 2 performance at Beacon’s University Settlement Camp. Thank you for your flexibility.
