The Sheldon Theatre says of its upcoming show, "Inspired by the residents and vast deserted factories of Johnson City, an upstate N.Y. town, Ghost Factory explores remnants of a past industrial era. Live performance merges with video imagery of abandoned buildings, evoking the humanity these spaces once held. Ghost Factory will be accompanied by Under the Skin, where the duet form explodes into a magically populated stage as they interchange with their ever-multiplying virtual selves."
The show is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25. Tickets are $20 and kids play free. For more information about this and upcoming shows, visit sheldontheatre.org.
