The Music Hall Academy presents Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream (8/23 & 8/24)
Join us as The Music Hall Academy students bring Shakespeare’s most magical play to life on the Music Hall stage! Working with professional storytellers and theater educators, students will use improvisation, physical comedy, song, dance, costumes, set and lighting design to create the unforgettable performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The historic Tarrytown Music Hall has joined forces with theater educator Peter Royston in creating The Music Hall Academy under the motto “Art For Life.” Based on traditional concepts of creative mentorship, The Music Hall Academy provides young people with an artistic home where they can develop vital life skills through the performing arts, learning from theater professionals, theater educators, members of the community and from each other. Providing an arts education in a real working theater, The Music Hall Academy immerses young people via a curriculum for theater-making, including set, costume, lighting, directing, playwriting and tech, as well as acting, song and dance. Academy students explore all the different parts of the theater in an open and nurturing environment.
