TEEN PROGRAMS

Bay Street Theater and Sag Harbor Center for the Arts hosts extraordinary visiting artists and often arrange special classes to our community, providing an opportunity  to personally engage with amazing performers and performance-makers. Local artists of note are also invited to share their unique perspectives with our students in workshop settings.

Teen Workshops and Masterclasses are offered in areas of Audition Technique using contemporary monologues, Speaking Shakespeare speeches  as soliloquies to discover the essence of his characters, and Musical Theater acting and staging songs for Summer 2016.

 

SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

Bay Street's interns experience first-hand the workings of an active professional theater, garnering invaluable work skills in the various aspects of technical production. Actively working with trade professionals in the rehearsal and production process, interns directly explore their own suitability to the demands and rewards of a life in the theater. Interns receive hands-on training in an extensive range of theatre skills through a rigorous schedule of production work.

LITERATURE LIVE!

LITERATURE LIVE! brings the power of the word from the page to the stage. Using curriculum-based literature, Bay Street Theater creates a unique learning experience by bringing professional theater artists together to present first class productions. The possibilities for insight and understanding of the subject matter are only increased when students can witness the characters from a great play or novel living and breathing and telling their stories right before their eyes.
