Cape Rep Theatre’s Young Company Initiative Info Session and Sign-Up
Cape Rep Theatre invites young people grades 8 through 12 to be part of our Young Company. Cape Rep’s Young Company Initiative (YoCo) provides free professional theater training to young local actors ages 13-19 (eighth grade and up) eager to learn the craft of acting through an intensive rehearsal and production process. All interested students are welcomed into this free annual program. The 2018/19 company consisted of 15 young men and women, whose hometowns stretched from Plymouth to Wellfleet, culminating in an incredible production of The Odyssey.
Come work with Cape Rep’s professional artists and do a play that will push you physically, emotionally and creatively to become a better actor. Your training includes acting, voice and speech, movement and stage combat, text analysis, audi
tion preparation, lots of games and more! Led by Associate Artistic Director, Maura Hanlon, YoCo meets 3 days per week beginning in December (with a break for the holidays) and culminates in a production on the Main Stage of Cape Rep’s Indoor Theater in 3 public performances: Friday, February 7 at 7 pm and Saturday February 8 at 2 pm and 7 pm.
There will be an information session on Monday, November 4 at 7 pm in the Community Room of the Cape House at Cape Rep Theatre, 3299 Rt. 6A, Brewster.
For more information, call the Box Office at 508.896.1888.
