                            Taconic Stage Company’s artistic director is a familiar local personality, Carl Ritchie. After three seasons as artistic director of Copake Theatre and a stint as town councilman, Ritchie took a year off to write shows and has returned with this new, non-profit theatre venture.

He was recently represented Off Broadway writing additional lyrics for "Fascinating Aida" at 59E59.
