Performing arts

Bethel Woods Event Gallery

The Museum at Bethel Woods, 200 Hurd Rd., Bethel, NY . 866-781-2922

The Forestburgh Tavern is an adjunct to the Forestburgh Playhouse, a summer stock theater. But it’s not just a place to adjourn to after the summer shows or to attend a cabaret on a summer night.

Sat., Sept. 22, 8pm           Paige Turner Drag Show: “Drag Me to the Top”

Probably the best known fall event at the Milford Theater, a historic structure that started life as a silent movie theater ca. 1910-1920, is the Black Bear Film Festival, taking place this year from October 19 to 21. But there are other events at this venue during the rest of the fall as well, such as the concert “Saints and Sinners: Young Dubliners at Milford Theater” it will host at 7:30 p.m. as part of Septemberfest, Sept. 8.

This year, its season will extend into September with an encore performance of what is probably it’s most highly-attended recurring show: a performance by the Slipper Room. These burlesque shows typically sell out, so call early to reserve tickets.

Sat., Sept. 15, 8pm          The Slipper Room

Old Time Fiddlers

The Old Time Fiddlers is a group of musicians from Northeast PA who have gotten together regularly for the love of fiddling over the past 40 years.
