APT To Be A Real Good Time

By Staff Report | Entertainment
QUEENSBURY— The Adirondack Productions and Theater, Inc. (APT) sixth annual show will be performed on Thursday, April 17 at 6 p.m. and Saturday, April 19 at 2 p.m. in the Queensbury High School Auditorium. The suggested donation is $5. This year’s show will be called “WAPT TV.” APT includes approximately 60 developmentally disabled adults, ranging in ages from 20s to 60s. Their show usually centers on a central theme and actors perform approximately 60 or more vignettes, one to four minutes in length. Many times actors will sing along with the music to these brief scenes. The group begins rehearsing in September, once a week in two different locations, since the number of performers is so large and to accommodate the support staff, that must travel with the performers and sometimes assist during the rehearsals. APT members come from Warren, Washington and Saratoga Counties and they look forward to the rehearsals since they are a unique and wonderful social opportunity for this population in a very supportive environment. The program began in 2001, as part of a life skills education series at the Warren-Washington ARC. Shortly after, APT became incorporated as a non-profit organization run solely by volunteers. Ruth Bletz-Clark has been the group’s director for all six years and she along with a few of her family members and several other regular volunteers, offer their time and talents each week, to prepare these enthusiastic performers for their annual show.
