About the Program
This audition-only program is for exceptional musical theater students in grades 6–8 (Middle School Cabaret Ensemble) or 9–12 (High School Musical Ensemble and Cabaret Ensemble).
Students who are accepted into the program can expect rigorous training to develop their vocal and acting techniques, culminating in performances for friends and family in The Garret at A.C.T.’s Geary Theater.
This is a great opportunity for you to hone your artistry with focused and eager peers!
YC Performance Opportunities are considered educational acting classes, and projects carry various tuition amounts for participation. We do offer partial and full scholarships, and financial circumstances do not affect casting or participation in any way.
