RAMP ROMP: A BENEFIT FOR ACCESSIBILITY AT THE BYRDCLIFFE THEATER
When Byrdcliffe’s historic buildings were constructed from 1902-1903, founders Ralph and Jane Whitehead were thinking about spaces where artists could work in quiet solitude surrounded by mountain views: accessibility for people with disabilities was not, at the time, an acknowledged necessity. As the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild works toward the goal of making all of its spaces accessible, the Byrdcliffe Theater on Upper Byrdcliffe Road, used by regional theater groups throughout much of the year, is a major priority. Ramp Romp is an evening of music and comedy featuring Gilles Malkine and Mikhail Horowitz, Sandy Bell, and Paul McMahon. Proceeds from Ramp Romp will go towards building a wheelchair ramp at the Theater. Read more
