Schroon Lake is home to two impressive performing arts organizations, both in historic locations. On this tour, we’ll have the opportunity to explore the architecture of these very different places and experience the magic of live theater and music.
We’ll start our afternoon at the Seagle Music Colony, the oldest summer singer training program in the country, which was founded in 1915 by the famous baritone Oscar Seagle. We will tour the Colony’s home since the 1920s and sit in on a rehearsal. Following our visit there, we’ll drive down to what remains of Scaroon Manor, once a premier resort, and now a state park and campground. We’ll catch a performance of The Winter’s Tale by the Adirondack Shakespeare Company in the resort’s historic amphitheater and then have a behind-the-scenes tour by the company’s artistic director Tara Bradway.
The full tour begins at 1 p.m. and ends at 6:30 p.m.
FEE: $45 for members and $55 for non-members. It includes all admission fees. Please note that tour participants must provide their own lawn chairs for the performance.
