The Depot Theatre Academy 2020 Alternative Outreach and Education Junior Program

July 13 @ 12:00 am

This summer, Depot Theatre Academy 2020 outreach and education program, which was originally set to be held inside the Whallonsburg Grange Hall as in past years, will be held outdoors!

They will be hosting classes under a large, open-sided tent in the one-acre parkland behind Whitcomb’s, the Grange-owned building directly across the street.

Strict physical distancing and health and safety protocols will be observed, in accordance with Federal and State recommendations and guidelines, and pursuant to New York State’s approval of the North Country Region entering reopening phase 4.

The dates for the junior program (ages 8-12) are July 13-24, and the senior program (ages 13+) dates are July 27-August 7, 2020.

The staff has developed a new curriculum that will provide junior participants with safely-distanced training in dance, voice, and scene work, and give them the opportunity to connect with each other. Participants will produce a take-home video compilation of their individual and collective performances, which we will also be presented in a pubic showing.

As Kim Rielly, Depot Theatre’s Executive Director said, “It’s imperative for arts organizations to alter our perspectives and to find creative and collaborative solutions in order to persevere in the current environment and into an unknown future.”

Program details, frequently asked questions, and registration are available at www.DepotTheatre.org. Space is limited, and participants will be accepted in the order of registrations received. For any further questions about the program, please contact Adam Michael Tilford at academy@depottheatre.org.
