High School

Young Artists Program

In addition to two fully-staged productions 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 nationally. YAP also includes intensive rehearsals, specialized workshops and performances. Training will focus on developing the skills needed to succeed professionally, including character development, vocal coaching and advanced dance technique.


YAP Express Master Classes are offered every summer throughout the months of June and July. Join industry professionals to learn essential and advanced theatre techniques such as tap dance, stage makeup, comedy, and more!

Current REVUE! and 42ND STREET cast members MUST enroll for express workshops in order to attend. Use the “cast member” option during enrollment. All workshops are included in summer show participation fees.
