A battle of wits ensues as Susy and the young girl upstairs launch a counterplot against the thieves. The drama plays on the themes of darkness and light as Susy navigates through her sightless world and the crooks signal each other with the light through Venetian blinds.

President's Corner

Dear Members,

There always seems to be something exciting going on at Antrim.  We recently hosted a Halloween party that was very well attended and a great time was had by all. We have a lot of other events planned including a night of comedy, improvisation and music on November 27th and a Holiday party on December 12th. Read through this newsletter for more details on these two events. Our board of directors, along with our volunteer staff, is working hard to continue to bring you a wide variety of entertainment options in addition to our 6 main stage productions. We welcome your ideas on the types of shows and events you would like to see. Please email me at with your suggestions.

As always, we are looking for creative people to help wtih the many jobs necessary to keep our theater running. It is for this reason that we are offering people of all ages, who have a passion for the theater, an opportunity to practice what they love doing.

If your interest is acting, directing, producing, stage managing, lighting and sound design/ operation, set construction, set design, set decorating, costuming or any other aspect of theater then Antrim could well be the place for you. We welcome those with experience or those just starting out and willing to learn.


We are aware that our website is sometimes out of date and we apologize for this. We recently lost our webmaster to other duties and are trying the best we can to keep it updated until a replacement can be found. I wish we had more "depth on our bench" to better handle situations like this but, unfortunately, we don't. Again, we will do the best we can for you and hope to have this situation remedied in the near future.


Finally, I am pleased to announce that Antrim has formed a relationship with a new restaurant, Jimmy's On Main in Nanuet, NY. Owned and operated by Antrim's Vice President and Board of Director's member, Jim Guarasci, Jimmy's On Main is offering a great after theater menu following each of our shows. Although this does not affect our relationship wtih Pasa Cucina and the dinner theater prices are still available to you there, it is very exciting to offer you another choice. Details on Jimmy's Restaurant and After Theater menu can be found in this newsletter and we urge you to stop by.
