Each fall the Youth Company presents the “Y1A’s” a collection of one-act plays, selected, produced, directed and acted by them. Auditions are usually held in September, with performances in November. This year’s Y1A’s performance dates are November 24, 25 and 26, 2016.
Each season the Youth Company presents a major show chosen by them and directed by an adult. These large cast productions typically provide new and younger members with their first opportunity to act on stage, while more seasoned youth move up through the ranks to eventually take of lead roles. Other youth members learn more technical theatre skills, such as costumes, stage management, lighting and sound, as they work alongside the adult technical crew.
The Spring Production performances are usually held in late April/early May. The 2016 show was “The Time Traveller’s Leg”, an original script crafted by one of the Youth Company’s now adult
“graduates”, Taylor Grist, who directed the show.
The 2017 show will be “The Canterville Ghost”, to be directed by Sam Hancock. The show dates are from May 4 to 13, 2017 with tickets $10. These shows almost always are complete sell outs, so reservations are recommended! Auditions for the Spring Production usually occur in November.
