Maverick Concerts partners with the Rosendale Theatre Collective

May 17 @ 7:00 pm

In celebration of the Juneteenth National Independence Day holiday, Maverick Concerts and the Rosendale Theatre Collective will present a special live production of Finding North by David Gonzalez at the Rosendale Theatre, located at 408 Main Street in Rosendale on Friday, June 17 at 7 p.m. Written by David Gonzalez, Finding North is a one-man play drawn from historical research and oral histories that bring to the stage powerful stories of the African American Underground Railroad hero, John P. Parker, as well as contemporary American immigrants. “Finding North is a celebration of the ongoing quest for freedom and justice in the United States,” says Gonzalez. “I believe it will have a powerful impact on all who see it. America has had many heroes that are, unfortunately, not as widely known as they should be. Finding North tries to help change that for John P. Parker.”
Maverick Concerts, America’s oldest continuous summer music festival, has been presenting outstanding musicians in the performance of classical, jazz, world and folk music in the historic, acoustically unique, Maverick Concert Hall in Woodstock since 1916. Music Director Alexander Platt said, “Maverick Concerts is thrilled to have an opportunity to reach out beyond our concert hall to partner with the Rosendale Theatre Collective.”
The Rosendale Collective operates the historic Rosendale Theatre as a vital and diverse cultural Hudson Valley nonprofit organization, using the power of film and live performance to entertain, educate and inspire connection.
Admission is by donation. To reserve seats and review the Rosendale Theatre Covid policy, visit www.rosendaletheatre.org. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment of the Arts.
