As part of the event, Bridge Street Theatre will be attempting to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title TM for Most signatures on a piece of theatre memorabilia. They’ll begin collecting signatures on a big golden cupola (which was removed from the theatre’s roof during its recent renovation) in early May, and the attempt to reach a goal of 700 signatures will culminate at the Memorial Day weekend event.

On both days of the event, $1.00 snacks will be available including hot dogs, cupcakes, and more. There will also be raffles and a 50/50, all of it in a family-friendly, county fair atmosphere. For more information, visit the theatre’s website at or call their offices at 518-943-3894.
