The Community Stage is a community based theatre that will offer the best in contemporary and classic musicals and dramas. From Rodgers & Hammerstein to Sondheim and Shakespeare to Shepard, the Community Stage will continue the efforts of the original beloved Chappaqua Drama Group.
The Movement Intensive Class is designed to challenge and train actors to use their bodies as the incredible “actor tools" they are. Each class targets a specific technique the students can use to better express themselves on stage physically. Through creative movement exercises, physical character work, dance/choreography, and more the actors will gain confidence in their physical presence on stage and off!
