Fort Salem Theater

11 East Broadway
Salem, NY 12865



Mission Statement

Fort Salem Theater operates a Mainstage and a Cabaret, and offers instruction in the three seminal elements of Musical Theater (Acting, Singing and Dancing), including Master Classes with working professionals in each of the disciplines.

The Mainstage and Cabaret serve as examples to students and the community-at-large of quality performances produced and executed in an environment conducive to the free flow of creative energies and ideas, in which artist and audience alike are nurtured and respected. Professionals are encouraged to workshop new productions. Time and space are accessible at the theater to community groups as needed and available.

The educational wing of Fort Salem strives to support the student in his/her strengths, analyze and address technical deficits, and provide training that will result in a series of general skills that can serve him/her in future academic, community, or professional theatrical experiences.

Fort Salem embraces the artist - writer, performer, director, designer - who works to reach across the physical abyss between stage and audience, touching souls as observer becomes spiritual participant with performer.
