Youth Programs

We are pleased to support aspiring artists and young theatre-lovers through a variety of initiatives, which make theatre more accessible to youth and offer them opportunities to gain experience onstage and off.

New Youth Academy

We have seen firsthand the impact we have on the lives of young people through arts education, engagement, and outreach.  As we look to the future, we are committed to inspiring and empowering the next generation of artists onstage and behind-the-scenes, as well as providing positive experiences which transcend the arts to shape future leaders and community-minded citizens. We are pleased to announce our new Youth Academy. Learn More

Youth Musical Theatre Program

Our Youth Musical Theatre Program and Pre-Professional Production Program are designed to cultivate creativity, ignite imagination, and boost confidence while providing aspiring young performers with opportunities to learn from professional theatre artists, enhance their musical theatre skills and HAVE FUN alongside others who share the same dreams.

One-Day Workshops For Youth

Our One Day Workshops For Youth are one-day musical theatre intensives that offers 30 lucky students the opportunity to learn from professional artists. Each day consists of workshops in the morning, followed by lunch, improv, theatre games, a behind-the-scenes theatre tour as well as music and choreography rehearsals for a production number.

Broadway Bootcamps

Our Broadway Bootcamps feature classes in singing, dancing, improv, and monologues. Plus, students learn about the professional performing arts world at Q&A sessions with two Broadway performers.

Youth Usher Program

We are pleased to offer friendly, out-going, and reliable youth ages 13 to 15 the opportunity to learn the responsibilities of having a job and be part of a team while gaining valuable work experience as youth ushers at our various theatres. Learn More
