ARMONK, N.Y .-- Armonk's Small Town Theatre Company latest production is "Proof," the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning play about the daughter of a deceased math genius and her fear of following in her father's footsteps, both mathematically and mentally.
The show will be performed on Nov. 14 and Nov. 15 at the Hergenhan Center in Armonk and Nov. 21 and Nov. 22 at the Katonah Village Library in Katonah at 8 p.m.; general admission is $15.
The play stars Larchmont resident Holland Renton, Bedford Hills resident Cyrus Newitt, New Rochelle resident Tom Coppola and Westport resident Julie Thatcher-Gourlay. The play is directed by Sam Morell, who lives in Armonk.
Morell started the theater company in 2008 with his partner Don Garr. The company does about six productions a year and also hosts concerts.
"We've carved out a nice niche in Armonk," Morell said. "Our theater only holds 60 people so we like to do intimate and small character plays."
"Proof," he says, is a very dramatic, very beautifully written piece.
The Small Town Theatre Company tries to do a mixture of drama and comedy. They previously did a production of the musical comedy, "Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike."
"We need to break it up a bit," Morell said. "I consider 'Proof' to be an intellectual type of play. There's a lot of meat and character to it. It keeps the audience wondering what's coming next. It's very powerful."
Morell has attracted a regular audience for his plays. At the Hergenhan Center in Armonk, he hosts a coffee reception and often features a Q&A with the cast.
"We want people to grab a bite to eat in Armonk," Morell said. "On the way home they can talk about the play they've seen."
"We're very pleased that Armonk has such cultural relevancy," Morell said. "How many towns can boast one thriving theater, let alone three?"
