What could be more perfect than Norma Desmond, faded Hollywood silent star, making an appearance on Bannerman Island? As far as Summer entertainment is concerned we can’t think of anything we would rather see.

After the classic movie there was the radio version. Theatre on the Road will be presenting it live, and safely, on Bannerman Island.

Five actors playing nine roles will be costumed as they bring to life the story of a Hollywood screenwriter who enters into a dangerous relationship with Norma Desmond, a faded film star who is seeking to make a triumphant return to the silver screen.

Hudson Valley actress Nanette Ayers, who was last seen on Bannerman Island in “Arsenic and Old Lace” will be appearing as Norma Desmond.

Tickets are $65 and are limited. They include a Hudson River cruise, a guided tour of Bannerman Island and the performance.
