summer youth theatre

TCT has sponsored its Summer Youth Theatre for almost forty years. Beginning with Li'l Abner, in 1973, literally hundreds of young people from ages seven through twenty-one have learned about theatre by doing. For most of them, this is a chance to be part of a production, to gain the confidence that comes from auditioning in front of others, and to learn to appreciate the dramatic arts. For a few, it has been the beginning of a career -- in theatre, in broadcast journalism, in music or in communications. For all, it has been a chance to have fun on stage!
We take our role in fostering an appreciation for theatre seriously, and we've been fortunate to have had many adult volunteers take the time to work with these young people, Off To See The Wizardand teach them the fundamentals of stagecraft, set design, costume and makeup. In addition to these adult volunteers, TCT has welcomed the chance to give college students majoring in drama the opportunity to share their knowledge and passion for the theatre arts by directing our summer programs. We've also been pleased to have both college and high school students serve as choreographers, music directors, set and lighting designers and stage managers. Providing these leadership roles to young people ensures our theatre of leadership for the future: both in the community and at TCT.
