Adirondack Theatre Festival (ATF) is a professional not-for-profit summer theatre located in Glens Falls, NY. ATF strives to challenge, entertain, and nourish its audience through the development and production of new and contemporary musicals and plays. This relationship engages the community as audience members and participants in workshops, discussions, and educational programming.
Each summer ATF produces an eight week season of theatre for an audience of more than 9,000 using professional artists from New York City and across the country. ATF operates under a Small Professional Theatre Agreement with Actors’ Equity Association (AEA) and 100% of the actors in its productions and readings are professional actors. A typical six week summer season includes three mainstage productions, a new play/musical workshop and a late night slot for cabaret and more adventurous productions. ATF is the only professional summer theatre in the Capital District, Saratoga and Adirondack regions of upstate New York solely committed to producing new and contemporary works of theatre.
ATF productions are original works crafted specifically for our audiences by some of the most established professional theatre artists in the country. The actors on our stage are all members of Actors’ Equity Association, the union of professional actors. They have worked regularly on and off-Broadway, on television and in movies. The same goes for the directors and designers.
ATF also operates the Adirondack Film Festival which extends its mission of new plays to reach new films. Serving over 3,500 patrons in one weekend, the film festival brings in major stars from the industry and showcases over 80 films across multiple screens all in Downtown Glens Falls.
