Half Moon Theatre, an ensemble of Hudson Valley theatre professionals, strives to produce work that ignites imaginations, provokes thought, and entertains.
We believe in the power of the spoken word. Through performances, youth education and outreach, Half Moon Theatre provides a central gathering place for the exchange of ideas amongst our diverse community.
Half Moon Theatre also conducts a Theatre School Of The Arts for musical theatre and acting classes for children ages 8-18 taught by seasoned new york professional performers. Half Moon Theatre Students will learn scene study, staging, creating a character, voice, improvisation, dance/movement, performance technique and more.
All Half Moon Theatre classes focus on preparing a piece to be performed for the Showcase at the end of the session. The classes are designed to teach each student the process, discipline and fun of developing a strong, creative theatre piece. Each of these pieces is created by the School Faculty with the goal of including each student and encouraging them to grow. We offer a professional environment where the students are treated as fellow artists.
