All classes and rehearsals are held at the Helen Hayes Studios: 142 Main Street (rear entrance) in Nyack, NY. Performances take place in different theaters throughout Rockland County including Clarkstown South H.S. and the Antrim Playhouse.

We are located on the corner of Franklin and Main Streets. Look for the parking lot adjacent to the Chinese restaurant. Walk to the back of that parking lot. Our glass door is located at the back of the building.

Please park on the street since parking is not allowed in the parking lot next to our studios. There are plenty of public parking meters available on the streets surrounding our space.
