90 Miles Off Broadway has presented theatre scholarships of $400 each to Kyle Beyer of John Jay High School and Sara-Elizabeth Clark of New Paltz High School in recognition of their years of participation, both on and off the stage, in 90 Miles productions.

Beyer has been working behind the scenes on many 90 Miles Off Broadway productions as a lighting tech and assistant technical director. His first production with 90 Miles was as a lighting assistant for “Meet Me In St. Louis” in 2002 at the age of seven. Beyer has been active in school productions and with other community theatre groups throughout both Dutchess and Ulster counties. He plans on attending Dutchess Community College this upcoming fall to study theatre. After Dutchess he plans to further his education at SUNY Purchase with a major in theater and lighting design.


Clark began working with 90 Miles in the children’s summer theatre program in 2004. She first appeared as Florence in “Florence’s Fractured Fairytales.” She continued performing with the children’s theatre program for an additional four years both on the stage and/or assisting in the pit band. Clark has also appeared in numerous other 90 Miles productions. Rounding off her on stage experiences, Clark has appeared in several high school productions. Most recently she was assistant stage manager for 90 Miles production of “Nine to Five, the Musical.” Clark will be attending Clark University in Massachusetts, where she plans on studying international development and social change.

The 90 Miles Off Broadway board of directors wished Kyle and Sara-Elizabeth the very best as they continue their education and much success in the years ahead.
