Summer Stage

Summer Stage students play games and work on blocking a play at theREP in Albany Thursday, July 27, 2017.

A unique summer education acting program for Capital Region teens.

Students in the Summer Stage Young Acting Company don’t just learn lines and rehearse scenes.

They’re part of a collaboration with winners of the Young Playwright Contest. Each summer, Summer Stage actors breathe life into characters created by their peers. 

Get a sense of what it’s like for these budding artists through photo and video of the program.
