Here’s our story!

The young actors and writers from Saratoga Children's Theatre, directed by Willy Appelman.

Once upon a time there was a girl who liked to sing and dance.  She met a boy who liked to tell stories and make people laugh.  They fell in love and moved to the greatest city in the world, Brooklyn, NY.  After dancing, singing and acting while babysitting at the same time, they had a great idea!  They decided to create a way to share their skills with their new found friends!  “Appleburne Wokshops” is a way for this girl and boy to do just that!  Come join us for a fun six week workshop that ends with a fun performance of our work!
