News and Upcoming shows for därkhorse drämatists
Thanks to all that helped make "Tales From the Script" 2012 a smashing success!
MUCH LOVE to the extremely talented cast of directors, writers & actors that came together to make "Tales from the Script" a smashing success! The house was packed two consecutive nights and we raised $150 for Saint Jude hospital, PLUS helped bring new work to the masses and support us local playwrights. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. Where these crazy horses gonna run now?

JUNE & JULY 2013
Another successful run for the horses
Därkhorse Drämatists produced a total of 7 original plays for their "200 MILES OFF-BROADWAY", new play fest. Four of the plays were from Binghamton-area authors and three came from playwrights abroad. We showcased the work at Tri Cities Opera in June and then at Deposit State theater in July. Attendance was strong for the most part, and even the smaller crowds in Deposit, NY were still enthusiastic about the experience. Most importantly, performances and writing were top-notch, after all, as Billy would say: “THE PLAY IS THE THING!”

Därkhorse put the 'howl' in Halloween
​Därkhorse Drämatists produced a total of 7 unique plays for their "TALES FROM THE SCRIPT", Halloween play festival.  The crowds were hearty and receptive. We performed 3 plays from Binghamton-area authors and 4 plays from national writers from VT, GA and CA.  We are gaining momentum and building a core audience, in our second year as a production company.  Even during the extremely busy Halloween-weekend, when over a dozen other events were taking place, we still had a great turn-out!  Thanks to all the wonderful audience members, actors, directors and playwrights that made this dream a reality!  Besides the literary and cultural mission of our unit, we also raised about $150 for the Community Hunger Outreach program! So heading into the Thanksgiving season, we want to give a great big THANKS for all the love and support. You are the reason these crazy horses keep running!
Därkhorse has some love to give!
​Därkhorse Drämatists produced a total of 6 unique plays for their "FOUR OUR HEARTS", Love play festival.  We performed 4 plays from Binghamton-area & NY City authors and 2 plays from national writers from IA, and GA.  In some brutal February ice & snow, we still had a respectable crowd — plus we received the praise of critics and audience members alike. New faces in the acting troupe & directing finesse by theatre veterans, Mickey Ray & Chris Nickerson along with the fresh perspective of writer/director Pete Bowers all lent their favor upon us. The quality is improving, as-is the turn out for submissions! We 'fell in love' with these wonderful new shows and hope to see many of you at our Spring show, "200 MILES OFF BROADWAY"!
