Young Artists Program
In addition to a fully-staged production in the summer, Civic Theatre’s YOUNG ARTISTS PROGRAM (YAP) is a year-round series of workshops and seminars designed just for high school students interested in improving their skills in a professional setting and looking to prepare for college auditions and beyond. All workshops are taught by performers and instructors with extensive experience locally, regionally, and in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
YAP also includes a seven-week summer program with intensive rehearsals and specialized workshops culminating in a fully-supported and professionally-staffed production on the Tarkington stage. Training will focus on developing the skills needed to succeed in the world of musical theatre including character development, vocal coaching and advanced dance technique.
Summer 2017 YAP Musical: Grease
“A lively and funny musical-as well as the dancingest one in town. It’s a winner…the songs are dandies [that portray] the early rockers with zip and charm. The sheer energy of Grease carries all before it.” – New York Daily News
GREASE is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
Curious? YAP announces an exciting new performance opportunity in June. More info to come!
Performance dates in June TBD.
