The "Paddle Ballet" is from the song and skit show "Forever Wild," a favorite production at the Arts Center for decades. The show, written, produced, and performed by local residents every two years, celebrates all things Adirondack. This hilarious number features Robin Jay, Jamie Strader, Jennifer Bine, and Barbara Westbrook during the first part (to Tchakovsky's "Swan Lake," of course). And be sure to watch the second part, which features Mike Corey in a rockin' Queen song! The 2020 production of "Forever Wild," originally scheduled for June 5 & 6, had to be postponed because of the COVID-19 crisis, but we hope to host performances again at the Arts Center when social distancing has been relaxed. Enjoy!
