Summer Programs

HVSF offers lively theater enrichment opportunities that help our community explore new aspects of the Festival. Through discussions, lectures and workshops, our teaching artists, directors and actors help to make the theatrical experience accessible to everyone.

These programs are scheduled before or after a performance, and are free when you purchase a ticket for the show.

Family Night Workshops

These pre-show, hands-on workshops led by HVSF actors for kids and their grown-ups offer a family-friendly and fun introduction to our productions. Workshops are offered on designated HVSF Family Nights as noted on our season calendar.

Our Family Nights program is made possible with support from the Anne and Abe Effron Fund - Donor Advised of the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley, and by public funds from Putnam County, a grant program managed and monitored by the Putnam Arts Council, Mahopac, NY.

Caught in the Act Series

These lively, informal pre- and post-show talks with actors, directors and scholars will offer an engaging, new perspective to our productions. Caught in the Act is offered on select dates throughout the season as noted on our season calendar.
