Fort Hill Players presents our fourth annual "From the Wings" showcase.  What exactly is "From the Wings?" Is it a play?  A musical?  A behind the scenes look at Fort Hill?  The answer is YES! “From the Wings" is all of this and more. FTW is an eclectic collection of one act short plays, excerpts from a larger play, musical numbers and world dances performed by individual members of Fort Hill to showcase their hidden talents. Our audience members of the past three years have seen some wonderful performances: Authentic Irish Step and Traditional Hula dances, a fortune-telling banana, Cupid pitted against the singles scene, and jaded angels unsure of their vocations.
See the talent from behind the scenes, along with some familiar faces from in front of the curtain, strut their stuff

General admission: $10;  FHP members & Subscribers: free
Rochambeau School, 228 Fisher Avenue, White Plains
