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
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.
