GREENWOOD LAKE — In 2011 what is now the Greenwood Lake Theater had its humble beginnings in New York City as Mercia Entertainment.

On Tuesday, July 25, Town of Warwick Councilman Floyd DeAngelo, Greenwood Lake Mayor Jesse Dwyer and members of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce joined staff members and summer students of Greenwood Lake Theater, for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The event was held at the Greenwood Lake Elementary School for the student's summer intensive to officially welcome them to the Village of Greenwood Lake.

During the past five years, members of the now renamed Greenwood Lake Theatre had produced several fund raisers, three readings and six outdoor Shakespeare shows.

And they were also invited by Chashama NYC to perform Hamlet at their 2015 gala.

That was an opportunity to work with hundreds of actors, designers, vendors and members of Actor's Equity.

After the moved to Greenwood Lake, the company expanded its staff, produced a musical locally, and officially renamed the company Greenwood Lake Theater to better reflect the community served.

Their stated goal is to provide Orange County with a resident professional theater company as well as greater access to theater education to enhance the community.

The first performance in Orange County began during the summer of 2016 where the company presented a professional production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at Thomas Morahan Waterfront Park.

And this summer, Aug. 2 through 6, also at Waterfront Park, they are presenting The Wizard of Oz, which includes performances by students from the community that had taken their summer theatrical intensive.
