Adirondack Theatre Festival
Adirondack Theatre Festival (ATF) is a professional not-for-profit summer theatre located in Glens Falls, NY. ATF strives to challenge, entertain, and nourish its audience through the development and production of new and contemporary musicals and plays. This relationship engages the community as audience members and participants in workshops, discussions, and educational programming.
Each summer ATF produces a six week season of theatre for an audience of more than 6,000 using professional artists from New York City and across the country. ATF operates under a Small Professional Theatre Agreement with Actors’ Equity Association (AEA) and 100% of the actors in its productions and readings are professional actors. A typical six week summer season includes three mainstage productions, a new play/musical workshop and a late night slot for cabaret and more adventurous productions. ATF is the only professional summer theatre in the Capital District, Saratoga and Adirondack regions of upstate New York solely committed to producing new and contemporary works of theatre. Two things separate ATF from other summer theatres in our region:
- Fresh Experiences. The plays and musicals presented on ATF’s stage are never older than five years old. This guiding principle provides audiences productions of recent hit shows from NYC as well as the latest scripts from established and emerging writers. It is a theatre experience that reflects the way we live now.
- Hand Crafted. ATF productions are original works crafted specifically for our audiences by some of the most established professional theatre artists in the country. The actors on our stage are all members of Actors’ Equity Association, the union of professional actors. They have worked regularly on and off-Broadway, on television and in movies. The same goes for the directors and designers.
