The Templeton Players are The Farmers’ Museum’s resident theatre troupe, specializing in performing rare comedic gems from the mid-late 19th century. All shows are free with museum admission and are performed on the Leatherstocking Stage in the museum’s country village! This year, we’re proud to feature two new productions on Saturdays/Sundays in July and August:
Cox & Box: A Musical Comedy
Score by Arthur Sullivan
Based on the play by John Maddison Morton, adaptation by F.C. Burnand, music by Arthur Sullivan
Performing Sundays in July and August at 12:00pm and 2:00pm
with accompaniment by Tim Iversen
Directed by Mike Tamburrino
In this rollicking, silly, musical farce, conniving landlord Sgt. Bouncer has tricked Mr. Cox and Mr. Box (who have opposing schedules) into sharing the same apartment! But how far can he take the scheme before chaos ensues? Featuring music by Arthur Sullivan of Gilbert/Sullivan fame!
