Dutchess County to Host Wonderful Fall Events

An Evening with Humorist David Sedaris (Sunday, Oct. 1, 7 p.m. at the Bardavon 1869 Opera House, Poughkeepsie)

David Sedaris returns to the Bardavon 1869 Opera House for an unforgettable evening of wit and satire. One of America's preeminent humor writers and a New York Times best-selling author, his new book, "Happy-Go-Lucky," debuted at number one on the New York Times best-seller list. He will sign books in the lobby immediately following his performance and the Q & A session. The Bardavon 1869 Opera House is the oldest continuously operating theater in New York State and one of the oldest in the entire country. A premier Hudson Valley destination, the Bardavon continues to delight the community with its proud history, breathtaking architecture and outstanding programming. Located in the heart of Downtown Poughkeepsie, the Bardavon is within walking distance of several fantastic restaurants, as well as the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel. It is only a short cab ride from the Poughkeepsie Train Station, which provides service for both the Metro-North Railroad (Hudson Line) and Amtrak, so getting there is a snap from New York City, Albany and beyond.

Revel 32° presents "Witch Perfect," the hysterical and award-winning parody based on the cult-classic Disney film, "Hocus Pocus!"

This all-ages, live-singing performance features three Emmy Award-winning stars from "RuPaul's Drag Race." Tina Burner (Season 13) plays Winifred; Scarlet Envy (Season 11, All-Stars Season 6) plays Sara; and Alexis Michelle (Season 9, All Stars Season 8) plays Mary. With music arranged and orchestrated by award-winning composer Blake Allen, the show features hits from pop music icons Madonna, Britney Spears and Cher, as well as Broadway standards and songs from the Disney classics "Little Mermaid" and "Lion King."

Revel 32° is a one-of-a-kind venue perfect for weddings and gatherings of all shapes and sizes. The iconic 20,000-square-foot edifice at 32 Cannon Street in Poughkeepsie — with the unmistakable Grecian columns adorning its façade — was built in 1845 as a church and redesigned by famed 19th-century architect Arnout Cannon as a Masonic Temple in 1895. A painstaking renovation in 2019 transformed this landmark into a diverse event space that honors the history of the building while being outfitted with state-of-the-art amenities.
