Franzi in Love by James Rosenfield, was chosen from a field of over 150 submissions to receive the top prize in their 2016-2017 playwriting contest.
In this award-winning play, the domineering Archduchess Sophie entrusts her shy
son, the virginal young Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria, to her worldly and
sophisticated friend the Countess Leonora, for his “sentimental education.” Come and see whether his Majesty graduates with flying colors or fails his mysteries of love course.

7:30 pm in the auditorium of the First Reformed Church, 52 Green Street, Hudson,NY.
Joining Artistic Director Barbara Waldinger will be actors Joan Coombs, Edward Elefterion, Byron Nilsson, and Yvonne Perry.
