A.C.T Youth Theatre is a free extra curricular program that helps young people to thrive– on stage and in life.
Members create socially relevant, artistically sophisticated original plays while learning vital life skills enabling youth to become self-confident, compassionate and accountable; to develop relationships across differences; build community; and be prepared to act as contributing citizens.
Membership is free to the young people who participate.
There are no auditions required – just a commitment to be an active participant of the A.C.T Youth Theatre community.
The collaborative theatre process gives young people the opportunity to make new meanings from the material of their lives.
Each week, members participate in theatre games and exercises, improvisations and scene work, rehearsal, critical reflection, and group discussion as they look critically at the world around them, decide what it is they want their theatre to say, and think about what their role in the world should be. It inspires creativity, builds self-esteem and resiliency, broadens horizons, develops social awareness AND it’s free!
