Space available in our building!
Starting May 1, you can get space in the building that houses the Gemini & Scorpio Loft, and in the loft itself. New studio rooms have been built out on the first floor, and we reserved the largest ones to share as office, storage and craft space. Ideally we'd like to see them split between 2-3 performance groups (theater, puppets, dance) and bundled with rehearsal and show bookings upstairs, but we're also open to individual co-working and co-crafting shares. Learn more and apply here: http://bit.ly/GS_office. Or, to get your own space, see http://www.bandspacesny.com -- the room layout is here. (If you're going to do quieter things, please request our side of the building! It's A-C.) For anyone renting a room in the building, we'll offer discounts on any Loft rentals for meetings, rehearsals and shows.
6.12 - The Grand Victorian Garden Tea Party
Sunday, June 12, 4-8pm, $40, all ages, rain or shine
at the historical Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden, 421 E 61st St
Event on Facebook | Buy tickets
Social media: @gemini_scorpio #geminiandscorpio #gsvictorianball
Join us as we travel back in time to the Victorian Age, to an elegant country resort a short carriage ride away from the hustle and bustle of the city (which at that time extended only as far north as 14th Street).
By popular request, we're hosting a proper tea party, with finger sandwiches, scones and fancies, in a darling garden attached to an impossible Victorian cottage overlooking modern Manhattan. All guests will have access to the museum as well as garden. In case of rain, outdoor covering provided. Very limited tickets.
Dress code: 1800-1910s summer garden party, with all-white, cream and pastel tones encouraged. No modern casual wear, please. Costume inspiration Pinterest board (not ours) here.
About our venue: Constructed in 1799 as a carriage house for a 23-acre estate, and converted into the Mount Vernon Hotel in 1826, this stone building sits on land originally owned by Colonel William Stephens Smith, and his wife Abigail Adams Smith, daughter of John Adams. The hotel operated until 1833, at which point the house became the home for three generations of a New York City family.
