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:
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!
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.
If you are looking for after school exploration programs for youth, we also have year-round classes. Take a look!
