The Saratoga Springs Arts Council is dedicated to helping children and youth learn a love of the arts and performing. Each summer they run a theatre program to give kids a chance to learn, acting, singing, and choreography. They end the program by putting on a small show to see how all of these elements come together in a production.
Registration opens March each year

Performance will be Saturday, June 27th at 2pm.
