Paper Bag Players: It’s A Marvelous Paper Bag World!

Sunday, 21 April, 2024
2:30 PM


The Paper Bag Players are coming with singing, dancing, and lots of laughs to SUNY Orange in Middletown, NY on Sunday, April 21, 2024. At 2:30pm, the fast-paced play accompanied by live music composed and performed by pianist/musical director John K. Stone, introduces the audience to the new play The Paper Bag Players: It’s A Marvelous Paper Bag World!  

Then, actors Ceili Fitzgerald, Erika Mesa, and Claire Lundin take the stage of the William and Helen Richards Theatre at Orange Hall with director/Equity actor Kevin Richard Woodall, a 27-year veteran of the Bags. Also, James Huggans is returning for his 23rd season as production supervisor/manager.


The play features cardboard and paper sets, paper bag costumes with brightly-colored shoes, classic sketches and brand-new works centered around hilarious stories of dancing cookies, a dancing robot, a friendly dragon, lovable characters, and audience participation. Lost in the Mall, Big Red Day, and Hot Feet are classics to be performed along with new works Mama Baby Kitty, Miss Mixup, and It’s a Marvelous Paper Bag World, plus many more.

Come and participate and give a cheer to the Paper Bag Players who are now celebrating their 65th year as a theatre company dedicated to creating plays that speak directly and vividly to children ages 3 through 9. While amusing adults with sly wit, the Paper Bag Players’ innovative,  original productions are thought-provoking for any theatre-goers.
