Anyone who has stayed at our Finger Lakes bed & breakfast and has explored the area has tasted of it's bounty, from the majestic beauty of our lakes, gorges and waterfalls to the rolling hills and vineyards which produce award winning wines, to the culinary delights of our local restaurants; along with the quaint, charming towns and villages offering boutique, specialty, and antique shops, to the many historical sites, museums, and cultural events, the Finger Lakes has it all! And now the Finger Lakes offers even more!
Exciting things are happening here in Auburn, NY! Our little city is not only the birthplace of talking movies but is now the birthplace of the Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival, produced by Merry-Go-Round Playhouse! This summer will be the premier season although a few pilot productions were offered at Merry-Go-Round Playhouse and Auburn Public Theatre last summer including the huge hit, "Cooking With The Calamari Sister".
Demolition has begun on the Kalet's Building on State Street which will be the location of a new performing arts center with 385 seat theater which is scheduled to open in 2013. And as I write this a brand spanking new Hilton Garden Hotel with two restaurants on site is being built downtown and is expected to open this August to accommodate theatre goers. I could tell you more but grabbed a video off youtube that gives a great introduction. You'll find it at the bottom of this post.
So, in anticipation of the festival 10 Fitch has created some FLMTF packages that include tickets to the performances and a few other goodies. As always, our packages are priced separate from our room rates. There are four new packages and each is available with stays of one or more nights. We have partnered with H&J Hospitality to offer concession goodies for the two Merry-Go-Round Theatre Packages which include Finger lakes wine and tasty nibbles before the performance. These packages along with the Auburn Public Theatre Package and The Pitch At Theatre Mack Package include 10 Fitch "Petite Sweets"- dessert for the two of you to enjoy back at the inn after the performance. If you have met my mom then you know she could qualify for that title :) Not to worry, the package includes yummy, edible, dessert not just one of moms hugs!
And for a bit of fun we are developing some trivia questions about the shows and festival that guests will get to answer for a chance to win a 10 Fitch mug.
