Our constant goal is to present a well-balanced mix of professional quality theater, from recent Broadway hits to the classics to the avant garde. The Capital District's longest-running, continually operating theater is heading into its 77th season of producing consistently outstanding professional-quality plays. Founded in 1928, within only a few months we were in our own picturesque little theater (a former mid 19th century Masonic temple) in Schenectady's historic Stockade district. We've been here ever since, always growing. Just a few years ago we acquired the former Red Cross building next door to provide space for our costume collection, group activities, office and archival work. Over the past 75 years we've produced almost 400 plays, each requiring as many as 100 volunteer performers, directors and backstage workers. That's made us the successful community theater we are today.
