Established in February of 2011, the Theatre Institute at Sage is dedicated to providing quality live theatre and arts-in-education programming to Capital Region youth, educators and residents. The Institute also provides opportunities for Russell Sage students as performers,  technicians and teachers. Programs include educational support services for Sage productions (such as in-class preparations, teacher in-services and study guides), a Saturday theatre arts school, camps during school breaks, and several theatre camps during the summer for children ages 5-18. Programs take place on the Russell Sage College campus in Troy, which is home to three performance spaces as well as numerous studios and classrooms. 

Arts: Performance, Drama, Music Dramatics students (ages 5-7) explore their imagination through creative activities such storytelling, movement, singing, mime, and craft projects. Working together with their class and teachers to create a performance to share on the last day of classes. Musical Theatre students (ages 8-16) focus on performance skills and personal development. These Saturday classes will emphasize work on skills in acting and voice, in a non-competitive atmosphere that fosters concentration, cooperation, and communication. The hour long voice classes will be taught by Emily Rose, who joined our teaching staff this summer at Summer on Stage. Stephen MacCauley returns to Sage to teach the hour long acting classes. Both the voice and acting sections will be taught during the first two hours of each session. Utilize and hone your new skills in an original scripted review that will be rehearsed during the third hour of each session and presented on the last day of classes.
