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.
The Music Hall Academy continues its mission to share enriching, enlightening and FUN artistic experiences with young people – even in these challenging times! This spring the Academy is offering THREE online workshops for kids grades 2 through 12, starting the week of February 22 for only $99. (Financial Aid available!)
