Storyteller Jonathan Kruk will tackle a Washington Irving classic in a new Historic Hudson Valley event this April: Irving's 'Rip Van Winkle.'
Accompanied by mandolin and strumstick, Kruk will bring his dramatic storytelling to the Assembly Room of Historic Hudson Valley's new headquarters at 639 Bedford Road in Pocantico Hills, N.Y., just across the street from Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture.
"I'm delighted and excited to add Rip to my repertoire," said Kruk, who also performs The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol for Historic Hudson Valley audiences. "I want to capture the magic and wit of Irving's tale of America's most famous snoozer."
Performances take place Saturday and Sunday, April 28-29, at 12:30, 2, 3:30, and 5pm. Admission for this hour-long, one-man performance is by timed ticket only. Seating is very limited and tickets should be purchased in advance at www.hudsonvalley.org or by calling 914-631-8200. Beverages and light snacks will be available.
Admission is $16 for adults and $12 for children 17 and under. Historic Hudson Valley members receive a $5 discount per ticket.
