INST-ADVENTURE: METROPOLIS / June 28 - July 1
Our workshop for young people, which produced last year’s hilariously original The Golden Phoenix, returns! This season’s Inst-adventure: Metropolis invites participants in the audience, on stage, and behind the scenes on a choose-your-own-journey utilizing smart-devices and polls in real-time as part of a collaboration and developing exchange with the Swedish organization Kultur i Väst. We’ll be exploring a variety of social issues, pushing the boundaries of theatre, and as usual looking to incorporate the insights of our young collaborators, all in the style of the silent-era film Metropolis. Join iTheatre Saratoga/Creative Place for this two week workshop culminating in a series of live performances from our youth workshop artists.
Open to students ages 9-14. Nominal enrollment fee for the two week workshop is $200 per/student. Limited scholarships available. All classes and performances are set to take place at the Riggi Theatre in the National Museum of Dance at 99 South Broadway in Saratoga Springs.
REHEARSALS: MON - FRI 10:30am - 3:30pm from JUNE 18 - 22
PERFORMANCES: JUNE 28 & 29 at 7pm and JUNE 30 & JULY 1 at 2pm

Paying tribute to the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking movie, iTheatre Saratoga/ CPI will debut a new adaptation of Night of the Living Dead, featuring live drama fused with multi-media production and original music. Racism, mobocracy, and collective panic are still infectious, though transmuted, half a century later and there’s been an outbreak. The enemy is not only among us, it may consume or convert us. Following a series of SFX makeup workshops in September, zombies will roam in October in the NMoD courtyard. Halloween week...be there... if you dare. (Cue evil laughter.)
Take another step back into the past, with the World Premiere of Agatha Christie’s The Stranger. The Dame herself penned this stage adaptation, which was lost in the shadows of a later collaboration of the same work, Love from a Stranger. The play confronts themes of feminine vulnerability and the seduction of the trope “love at first sight.” From the mouth of a confidence man, the likes of which crowd our headlines nowadays, “Woman’s weakness is man’s opportunity. Did Shakespeare say that or did I think of it myself? I believe I thought of it. If so, it’s good, it’s damned good!”
PERFORMANCES: Jan 25, 26, Feb 1, 2 at 7:30pm & Jan 27, Feb 3 at 2pm
