Depot Theatre Academy sponsors participants at NYSTEA student conference
The Depot Theatre Academy sponsored 10 students and 3 chaperones at the New York State Theatre Educators Association (NYSTEA) annual student conference January 6-8, 2023.
Each winter, NYSTEA hosts its annual High School Theatre Conference at the Villa Roma in Callicoon, New York. This high-spirited weekend is jam-packed with fun and educational theatre workshops, performances, and special events.
The North Country contingent joined over 600 students from all over New York, including Depot friends from the Book and Blanket Players. Participants were given the opportunity to participate in over 200 concurrent sessions over the course of three days. Workshops covered all aspects of theatre, such as “Unleash your Broadway Belt”, “Masterclass in Improv,” “Broadway Jazz,” “Stage managing,” “Gore-gastic makeup,” “Practical guide to lights,” and more!
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. Academy programming provides robust educational experiences for area youth and a pathway for those interested in pursuing a profession in theatre—whether that’s backstage or on stage. The three-week Academy summer program will be held July 17- August 6, 2023.
