YAG Performs “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”

This spring, an aspiring group of young actors, singers, and dancers took to the stage in the RPI Playhouse to perform their rendition of the critically acclaimed Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

From May 18-20, the students who had participated in the Young Actors Guild (YAG) spring program showcased their many talents and enthusiasm for theater. The theater organization, a not-for-profit program supported by the Rensselaer Union with facility and administrative support, will be entering its 23rd season on the Rensselaer campus this fall. The organization is best known for teaching the performing arts to students ages 6 to 18, while working to build good character both on and off stage.

The 10-week program held during the fall and spring semesters provides students with an opportunity to perform in one or more professionally choreographed productions following each session. In addition to one-week vacation camps throughout the year, students have an opportunity to participate in classes that include acting, dance, and music, both during the school year and also on Saturdays and throughout the summer.

Annually, YAG serves more than 200 elementary, middle, and junior high school students from more than 40 Capital Region schools. All classes are taught by professionals.
