Celebrate [sel-uh-breyt] make happy, make merry, make whoopee, revel and rejoice.
I am tickled pink to present Clocktower Players sensational 35th season — a joyful, crowd-pleasing celebration for the entire family!
From Westchester premieres of Broadway hits to stage versions of beloved animated classics, we’ve planned a year filled with laughter and fun. Our selections are all exuberant musicals that depict colorful characters overcoming challenges by finding their own unique voice and gaining the confidence to share it with the world. Here at Clocktower —driven by joy, passion, and heart— we strive to help our dedicated players do just that.
As Artistic Director, my greatest pleasure is sparking and nurturing a passion for the performing arts. In developing each performer's growth, our team delights in the energy and happiness our players exude. Through hard work, sheer determination and talent, seemingly impossible dreams do come true.
For thirty-five years, with your support, we have flourished into an exciting, creative home for performers and theater-lovers of all ages—a cozy hub of creativity and self-expression. Let's keep the magic going for 35 more!
We're going to have a fantastic time this season.
I can't wait to share it with you.

Michael C. Penta - FOUNDING DIRECTOR EMERITUS "Michael's creative staging and imaginative choreography continue to enhance our productions, raising the standards to new heights." Janet O'Hara, former president ITHTF Executive Board
Michael Penta has directed seventy-two shows in Irvington since his arrival here in 1967. Prior to that time he performed, choreographed and directed Equity productions both for off-Broadway and for regional, stock and community companies around the country. Once off the train in Irvington he directed and cho¬reographed productions at the High School and taught drama and dance for 26 years. Michael holds theater degrees from Rutgers and Columbia. He takes his role as a theater educator as seriously as he takes his craft, and it is clear that he instills a love of theater and dance in his graduates. Nearly 300 have gone on to careers in professional and educational aspects of theater. Today, to paraphrase Mrs. Dolly Levi in Hello Dolly!, he still "spreads it around, encouraging young things to grow."
"Michael Penta's absolutely brilliant production of the Mikado is in the realm of genius!" Lawrence & Linda Levine 2001
