Since 1994 the Adirondack Theatre Festival (ATF) has produced its annual summer of professional theatre. All performances are at the Charles R. Wood Theater, 207 Glen Street, downtown Glens Falls, NY. Since 1995 ATF has redefined the expectations for summer theatre in upstate New York by producing new and contemporary scripts in productions created by professional artists from New York City and across the country. Many of the shows developed and premiering at ATF have received subsequent productions in New York and elsewhere.

- Adirondack Theatre Festival (ATF) continues its 19th summer season of professional theatre with Eric Lane’s new play, Filming O’Keeffe. Filming O’Keeffe is a story inspired by the years artists Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O’Keeffe spent living on Lake George. In this emotional, lyrical, and funny play, the spirit of these two artists come alive in a family living on the property formerly owned by Stieglitz. Set in the present, young Max is making a film about the two artists for a high school film project. When his estranged grandfather shows up, Max confronts his mother in an effort to learn about his parents’ hidden past.
