Sightings – A FREE Staged Reading  

October 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Paramount Hudson Valley Arts and the Paramount Theater in Peekskill present a FREE staged reading of SIGHTINGS, a new play about three teens swept up in a chilling, real-life Hudson Valley mystery.  

On an eerily quiet night in a park along the Hudson River, three teenagers from very different worlds get the shock of their lives when they witness something they can’t explain. Now bound together by this unsettling mystery, the teens must decide what to do. A secret pact, a fierce struggle, and a startling betrayal could jeopardize each teen’s hopes for the future.  

SIGHTINGS is a suspenseful coming-of-age play about seeing and being seen, set against a wave of social change and unexplained phenomena that swept through the Hudson Valley in the 1980s. Written by local playwright Mona Z. Smith and directed by Traci Burwitz Mariano, SIGHTINGS was commissioned by Paramount Hudson Valley Arts, which operates the Paramount Theater in Peekskill, NY. This project is made possible by the NY State Council on the Arts, with the support of the Office of the Governor and NY State Legislature.  

Experience the exciting process of creating a new play! Join us for a FREE staged reading of SIGHTINGS on Saturday, October 15 at 7:30 pm, at the Paramount Theater, 1008 Brown Street, Peekskill, NY 10566. A Q&A with the artist will follow the reading.
