January 24, 2023

 Catskill Mountain Shakespeare (CMS) presents their 2023 Outdoor Summer Season with Shakespeare’s comedy As You Like It opening July 15, 2023. This year, CMS is thrilled to formally announce their move to the Mountaintop, with performances under a tent at The Red Barn on Main Street in Hunter, a venue generously hosted by The Catskill Mountain Foundation. The production will be directed by Sydney Berk, a graduate of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts who is currently Assistant Directing Lucy at The Minetta Lane Theater in NYC. The three-week run will feature a diverse cast of NYC and local talent in twelve performances staged within the picturesque landscape of the Catskill mountains. As You Like It runs July 15 – 30, 2023. For more details, visit

“We are ecstatic to bring CMS to the mountaintop for our third summer season,” says Artistic Director & Founder (and West Kill resident) Sarah Reny. “We are looking forward to welcoming back our old friends and fans and making new ones!”

CMS has expanded its team this year by hiring Elka Park’s Carolyn Marie Wright (Theatre Program Director at The Onteora Club, former Manager of Education & Community Engagement at Geffen Playhouse) as Outreach Director and Hudson Valley-based performer and educator Brittany Proia (Denizen Theater, Shadowland Stages) as Producer. The CMS team aims to expand their community outreach and increase production offerings for audience members this season. In addition to main-stage performances, CMS will offer numerous community events and opportunities including a Low Cost/No Cost ticket initiative, a pay-what-you-can performance, an LGBTQIA+ summer social, a relaxed performance geared for families (with free tentside childcare), no-fee theatrical workshops for kids, teens and adults taught by artistic professionals, and local farmers’ markets pop-up events.
