After School Programs

In a special partnership with Schenectady School District, students from the three middle schools and high school can elect to participate in three different programs that highlight careers in the arts:

Acting Academy

An acting program for middle school students, this program is to learn the basic techniques of acting while rehearsing in preparation to perform a fully formed theatre production. Performances will occur twice a year and are open to the public! 
Acting Academy teaches the basic techniques of acting while rehearsing in preparation to perform a fully formed theatre production. Included are technical theatre workshops, stage makeup workshops, dance workshops, and music. This program culminates in May with three performances, free and open to the public. Acting Academy will run from Monday, October 15 and run through Thursday, May 9 from 3-6pm. Transportation from school and to the nearest bus stop will be provided. If your student participates in other after school activities, we can work with that schedule with enough advance notice. Registration must be completed by Monday, October 8 to be enrolled in the program. For more information, or to ask questions, feel free to contact Katherine Stephens, School Programs Director, 518-382-3884 x168 or email.

Music and Film Program:

Told By Us Productions

Told By Us Productions aims to strengthen communities via productions of music and films that explore social issues from the perspective of high school students. Participation in the program motivates students to perform well academically while fostering their creativity and opening doors for future career opportunities. The program also serves as a platform for the exchange of ideas and resources between individuals and various organizations. View the 2016-2017 TBU Productions Film here!

A workforce development program for high school students and young adults. This program will provide hands-on training for students to learn the technical theatrical skills in order to go directly into the workforce.
