Blake states, "In order to keep everyone safe, Fendig has decided to not have a full live production summer. We have gone entirely virtual with the Fendig Theatre Experience".
It is a series of YouTube videos that young artists can learn about theatre and create a final performance at the end. More information on the season can be found under our 2020 season tab on the website.
Fendig Theatre for Children is pleased to introduce our 2020 season, the Fendig Theatre Experience. Our staff is creating exciting episodes for everyone to learn about theatre performance and production. We are inviting all to take part in our season, and encourage you to join our Core Ensemble for exclusive opportunities at no cost. The Core Ensemble will receive personalized feedback from our staff and are guaranteed to appear in our final performance. We look forward to creating with you!

Blake currently lives in New York City, and recently finished working as the Child Talent Assistant for the 1st season of The Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo and the 51st season of Sesame Street. Blake and the Fendig team have worked very hard to bring you this unique virtual experience, and he can’t wait to continue teaching the young performers of Rensselaer this summer.
Fendig has been very grateful for our temporary warehouse storage, but it's time for us to move. We need your help moving our warehouse materials to another storage space. Help us go through and move the pieces that make up our shows every year so we can continue to put on the show, reuse and repurpose our materials.
For students, we are happy to count these hours for your volunteer service hours for any of your school/club needs! This would be a great opportunity for the Jasper Newton Foundation Senior Service Challenge.
Come for an hour or two or stay until we are done. Any time you can give us would be appreciated.
Please wear comfortable clothing. We are so appreciative of any and all community members available to help.
This weekend we are hosting two tech workshops! This is a great opportunity to learn about what happens behind the scenes in theatre. Participants will have a chance to use the equipment and ask questions to our technical staff! These workshops are free and open to everyone. Bring a friend and we hope to see you there!
