S.T.E.P. Our Subscription Teen Engagement Program

SUMMERSTAGE (July - August)

Artists in this age group crave greater independence, and our teen classes give them the opportunity to take on more challenging material. Building on the skills developed on our Youth core classes, teens connect with members of the resident acting company to refine their acting skills. We also offer a teen subscription to our productions though our Subscription Teen Engagement Program. If you’re a teen artist looking for your tribe, check out our S.T.E.P. program.

Most summer theatre programs focus on producing plays that are already written. Our distinctive feature is that we encourage young people to be the authors of their own stories; to collaborate together and make something new. Young people are the driving force in the creative process from the first spark of an idea to the final performance. Our programs are both joyful and rigorous. They engage every aspect of our collective intelligence, imagination, and creativity. We believe that our best theatre happens when we play and work together to explore the wonderful possibilities of telling a good story that matters.
