The Creative Teens Theatre program invites students to engage in the creation process for an original and collaborative theatre piece! The class works closely as a mini theatre “company” to explore how they can express stories that are meaningful to them. During the program the students will learn a variety of skills that may include: acting, masks, physical theatre, scriptwriting, lighting, sound, and more! At the culmination of the program, the class will present its original theatrical piece on a professional stage.

Creative Teens Theatre is a program for those who are interested in creating their own theatre in a fun and supportive environment. Theatre experience is not required, but students are expected to commit to sharing ideas and working closely as a team to achieve their vision.
