Building Character for Lifetime Performance

Youth Theatre offers a range of experiential theatre arts programs and classes designed to develop creativity, critical thinking skills and promote positive youth development. The common elements that are fundamental to each of the core classes are: peer and professional mentoring; critical feedback and self-reflection; opportunities for educational development; opportunities for community involvement; and authentic, "hands-on" learning experiences.


After School

Education programs at Youth Theatre inspire creativity, confidence and a sense of community through the exploration and practice of theatre skills. Professional teaching artists lead students through engaging, interactive sessions at the University of Utah. University students studying Theatre and Education are often utilized as teaching interns.

Summer Sessions

Our popular summer camps are one of the most affordable quality theatre camps in the country. Regardless of their level of experience, students will audition and rehearse a one-act production, have workshops in various theatre topics, and develop their skills in acting, singing, and dancing, while engaging with their peers — building on areas central to their development such as: critical thinking, collaboration, public speaking, time management and social development.

Youth Theatre is dedicated to 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. 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.
