Come and sit under the stars in our outdoor amphitheater. On clear nights, OrSVP usually sets up telescopes so the audience can get a closer look at some of the nearby celestial objects. The moon, of course, often gets a center stage, but whenever Saturn is visible you can get a nice view of her rings. Then enjoy the play where Frederick Fairlie, a wealthy hypochondriac, hires virtuous Walter Hartright to tutor his beautiful niece and heiress, Laura, and her courageous half sister, Marian Halcombe. Although Hartright and Laura fall in love, she honors her late father’s wish that she marry Sir Percival Glyde, a villain who plans to steal her inheritance. Glyde is assisted by sinister Count Fosco, a cultured Italian who became the archetype of subsequent villains in crime novels. Their plot is threatened by Anne Catherick, a mysterious fugitive from a mental asylum who dresses in white, resembles Laura, and knows Glyde’s secret.
