HISTORY

HOME MADE THEATER was founded by Jonathan Foster and Susan Miller, incorporated in 1985, and has been committed to creating affordable quality theater for the greater Capital Region ever since. Throughout our history we have gained a reputation for presenting professional quality Community Theater. Our success can be credited to the thousands of hours of work each season accomplished by the joint effort of our professional staff, a team of professional directors and designers, locally sourced actors, and hundreds of volunteers in all areas of production. We are Community Theater with a professional edge.

Our history speaks for itself: our growth from the fifty-five seat theater at Caffé Lena in 1985 to our first three-production season in 1986-87, at the four hundred eighty-six seat Spa Little Theater in Saratoga Spa State Park, was a great accomplishment. Our tremendously popular acting and theater workshops began in 1986 and have continued with the expansion of our summer camp and youth theater conservatory programs. We are a place where everyone can learn theater craft. We wish to foster the advancement and education of artists, actors, designers, and others involved in the theatrical arts.
