Tingling Fingertips

"There's something about the theater
which makes my fingertips tingle."
Wole Soyinka

Since 1985, Homemade Theater has been tingling our fingertips with us affordable, professional quality, community theater.  My family has laughed, cried, pondered and been totally entertained as we sat in such intimate proximity to the artists performing onstage at the Homemade Theater. Throughout the last 25 years, the Homemade Theater has depended upon the support of our community to provide us this rich and accessible tradition of the arts. Right now this little gem of a theater needs our support and they're raising the curtain on a fun-filled evening where we can applaud their work and raise funds to support their next acts:

Home Made Theater, the resident theater company of Saratoga Springs, will host their Annual Spring Benefit which will take place on Saturday, March 26th at the Spa Little Theater in the Spa State Park. HMT will shine the spotlight on hometown dignitaries, supporters and talent at the annual benefit this year. Leading the way and guiding attendees through the evening will be film and television actor Chris Riggi. A homegrown star and HMT alumnus, Chris will take on a demanding duo role for the evening as master of ceremonies and auctioneer. The evening will include culinary jewels from Black Diamond Caterers, silent and live auctions, Skidmore’s acclaimed a’capella group the Skidmore Dynamics, special entertainment from the Saratoga High School Drama Club performing numbers from their spring musical “The Wedding Singer” and a chance to groove to the sounds of Franklin Micare Duo.

The fundraiser begins at 7:00pm with hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and a silent auction. Bid on fantastic dinners at a fine area restaurants, massages and other spa treatments, hotel stays, and tickets to various area events and attractions.  During this time, you can also strike a pose or many in a photo booth from Saratoga Photobooth Company.   Honorary chairs for the event are Cathy & Elliott Masie with underwriting support from Turbine Services Ltd. - The Riggi Family, Jaeger & Flynn Associates, Inc., and Saratoga National Bank and Trust Co.
