We are a group for people that want to practice communication skills including public speaking and leadership, to develop and improve lifelong skills that will help you in your career, your personal endeavors and your relationships. You will make new friends, develop new skills and learn something new and interesting at every single meeting. We are literally the best Toastmasters Club in Glens Falls. Toastmasters International is a non-profit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of clubs with over 357,000 members. Our local club is special. We are an open, friendly, and fun club, and all you need to bring is your desire to learn something new and your sense of humor. Do you love public speaking? Do you hate public speaking? You will love our group. You are welcome to show up to a meeting anytime, but we encourage you to contact us first on the rare occasion that our meeting has been canceled or has changed location that month. Our meetings start promptly at 7 p.m. so you’re encouraged to arrive around 6:45 p.m. so you can look over our meeting agenda and some of our members can welcome you and explain the meeting format.

Skidmore Theater is pleased to announce its spring Main Stage Production, “Cabaret” by Joe Kander, Fred Ebb, and Joe Masteroff, directed by artist-in-residence John Michael DiResta. This production explores queerness, fascism and jazz in a highly immersive fashion in which the theater space is reinvented, transforming the JKB into the Kit Kat Club and allowing some audience members to sit on the stage at café tables.The play takes place in Berlin on New Year’s Eve in 1928. The air is full of sex, champagne, drugs and jazz as aspiring American novelist Clifford Bradshaw’s train pulls into town. As midnight approaches, Cliff moves into a marvelous, decrepit boarding house and makes new friends unlike any he’s ever met before.
