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. 

The Stinky Cheese Man

The Stinky Cheese Man, familiar fairy tales take on lives of their own, often go berserk right onstage and occasionally burst into song. Rumplestiltskin turns up in Cinderella’s story. Jack sends the Giant back up the beanstalk (which he hasn't even planted yet). Chickens can't wait for their cues. The audience can't wait to applaud - and you'll never want it to end.
