Youth Theatre is dedicated to the ideals of Theatre for Young Audiences: a system of artistic creation whereby young members of the community gather together to create a product to be enjoyed as both a creative process and an artistic product. It is this model, in an environment of professional leadership, and with an emphasis on the educational process, which we seek to perfect. In order to achieve this, we believe that our theatre must provide high-quality opportunities for exploration of the theatrical art form on both sides of the proscenium.
UPCOMING SHOWS AND EVENTS
School House Rock Live Jr.
Youth Theatre productions provide students with a professional production experience designed to increase performance and rehearsal skills while building confidence, empathy, and ability to work as an ensemble.
The pop-culture phenomenon Schoolhouse Rock comes to life on stage in this musical adaptation of everyone’s favorite Saturday morning cartoon. Performed by local, young actors from U of U Youth Theatre, the show follows Tom, a school teacher nervous about his first day, and includes all the best songs from the original, including Conjunction Junction, I’m Just a Bill, and more.
