Depot Theatre Academy

The Depot Theatre Academy is an education and outreach program for artists ages 8 and older, led by theatre professionals from the only professional Equity theatre in the Adirondack Park.

“We believe that youth and families exposed to theatre and the arts are enriched in important ways that add value to their lives in the early stages of learning development as well as later in life.”

Adirondack North Country Region 2021 Youth Theatre Opportunities

Although many arts organizations’ plans are uncertain at this time, there ARE several youth theatre opportunities scheduled for the 2021 summer.


This information will be updated as changes occur and new opportunities arise!

Depot Theatre Academy Summer 2021 Program

A robust educational experience for all of our area youth and a pathway for those interested in pursuing a profession in theatre—whether that’s backstage or on stage.

For the summer of 2021, the Depot Theatre Academy will be two-week, in-person theatre education program with workshops, rehearsals and performances that implement “physically-distant, artistically connected” protocols as required, all led by Actors’ Equity professionals.

The program welcomes young artists ages 8-12, and an enhanced senior program for participants ages 13 and older who are enrolled in school, home school, or college.


Adult Rep

This class offers an approach to the repertoire of Broadway songs and strong monologues from the actor’s perspective. Participants will learn how to find and implement new techniques of expression, relaxation, and freedom.

Participants learn how to ACT a song (not just sing the song), and work together with instructors to find a monologue that complements the song to form a seamless package to utilize for auditioning or showcasing!

2021 Opportunities to be announced soon!
