The SUNY Adirondack Theater Program presents one major production each semester with auditions open to all students. Students present a special performance of each major production for area high school students. This is presented at the ACC Theater during school hours and is free of charge.
SUNY Adirondack has a Touring Theater for Children that runs one semester each academic year and is made up of college students who enjoy performing for young people. The Touring Theater for Children travels to elementary schools, during school hours, presenting entertaining and educational material. (Each semester 3,000 to 5,000 young people view the production.) This is free of charge to schools.
The program also sponsors a bi-annual ten-minute play playwriting contest judged by students, faculty and community members. In addition, community outreach projects for theatre take place throughout the year.
Theatre Club is an official student club sponsored by the SUNY Adirondack Student Association. The Theatre Club supports the mainstage productions on campus in the fall and spring semesters through volunteer work and promotions. It has funded students in mainstage performances to attend The Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival. It also engages students in theatre activities on and off campus as a creative and professional outlet for all levels of experience in the theatre arts. Activities include engagement in workshops related to all production elements in the field, staged readings of plays, host guest artists, and support a semi-annual playwriting contest. The Theatre club offers industry-related trips to local and professional theatre companies and opportunities to see professional performances. Membership is open to all SUNY Adirondack students regardless of major.
