About the Theatre Institute
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.
Under the supervision of Department of Arts and Letters chair, Michael Musial, Russell Sage Teachers/Artists-in-Residence David Bunce and Heather Hamelin are responsible for the administration of Theatre Institute at Sage programming. Programs are taught by a combination of Sage staff, students and consultants.
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.
Announcements and recruitment for the Theatre Institute will be done through a combination of print media, direct mail, social media and Sage website and publications.
