AREA STUDENTS INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN FESTIVAL OF THEATRE ARTS
The Willsboro Central School Drama Club, in partnership the Depot Theatre Academy, will host a one-day Festival of Theatre Arts on May 14, 2022 from 9 am to 4 pm.
The Festival is free and open to all students in grades 7-12 from any school, and offers the opportunity for participation in workshops in singing, acting, dance, and behind-the-scenes technology with Depot Theatre teaching artists from Broadway and beyond.
“We’re pleased to offer this full, fun day of all things theatre,” said Jennifer Moore, Festival organizer, teacher, musician and member of the Depot Theatre Advisory Council. “It’s a terrific opportunity for students to learn practical skills directly from professional artists, and even to explore theatre-related careers!”
Registration is open and should be submitted by May 10. More information and the registration form are available HERE. For more information, contact Jennifer Moore at email@example.com.

We’ve installed 200+ poems by North Country writers in shop windows all over the village of Saranac Lake, and we’ve got each one available to view on our website HERE.
It’s been heartening to see passersby, mail carriers, students, dogwalkers, and whole families stopping by to peruse poems along the streets of Saranac Lake. Follow us on Instagram HERE to see more photos of the project.
FRIDAY AT UJAC – PLAY READING!
LIFESPAN OF A FACT
Friday, 7:30 pm
Jim Fingal is a fresh out of Harvard fact checker for a prominent but sinking New York magazine. John D’Agata is a talented writer with a transcendent essay about the suicide of a teenage boy- an essay that could save the magazine from collapse. When Jim is assigned to fact check D’Agata’s essay, the two come head to head in a comedic yet gripping battle over facts vs. truth.
