Adirondack Regional Theatre
Adirondack Regional Theatre is a dynamic and culturally diverse organization of people from all walks of life and all age groups, joined together in their commitment to producing a high-quality theatrical experience. Since its beginnings in 2000 ART has been a staple of North Country summers, performing outdoors in downtown Plattsburgh at the Lions Club Band Shell on the banks of the Saranac River at the foot of MacDonough Monument and other locations. Clinton Community College named the group “Theater Company In Residence” from 2007-2012. In recent years the group has been performing in the historic Strand Center Theatre.
ART has presented its outdoor family-oriented musicals free of charge. Corporate sponsors, advertisers, and donations from the audience have funded all ART productions. The Mayor’s Cup Festival organizers hired the group in 2004, 2005, and 2017 to perform as part of their main stage series. ART has also been hired to entertain audiences at both SUNY Plattsburgh and Clinton Community College.
It is estimated that the group has performed to over 125,000 North Country residents and visitors. The audience’s make up has included all age groups from children to senior citizens.
A.R.T. team is dedicated to providing a haven for younger actors to learn about theater and themselves. We give creative people a platform where it allows the actors to gain self-confidence, poise, socialization skills, time management, and team-building skills while having a great time.
