This theater operates on a shoestring budget out of an old firehouse that is under perpetual construction (director Ric Chesser is trying to make the entrance look like a castle but constantly running out of cash), but local parents wouldn’t know what to do during school vacations without its “Vacation Daze” lineups. They produce their own shows as well as host top-flight kid’s entertainers — many from the Hudson Valley. And the healthy snack bar (popcorn, apple cider) makes moms smile.
