boots on the ground theater’s inaugural production was “Deep Down in Brooklyn,” a one-man show based on the memoir of Ed German. The show was performed at Guild Hall, in East Hampton, as part of their JDT Lab series. Ed German riveted a sold-out audience with his stories of growing up in Brooklyn in the 1960’s and his tour of duty in Vietnam.
In 2018, we produced “The Miracle Worker” and “The Red Badge of Courage.”
Reenactments of Victorian Funerals have been produced in partnership with the Southampton Historical Museum. Historical figures from Southampton were brought back to life (and death) while staying true to history, replicating the mannerisms, traditions and wardrobe of the time–surprisingly lively entertainment!
On November 5th, 2017, we presented “Failure is Impossible: Susan B. Anthony In Her Own Words,” as a celebration of the Centennial of Women’s Suffrage. This theatrical walk-through of the history of women’s suffrage was performed at the John Jermain Memorial Library, and featured Bonnie Grice and Lynn Sherr.
