Youth Onstage! offers young people, ages 14 to 21, the opportunity to perform in and create plays that have something to say about the world and its future. During its first four years, YO! has produced hip-hop cabarets, poetry snaps, and plays by first-time youth writers. All productions are performance experiments, designed to challenge its performers and audiences to think and feel outside of the box. They tackle difficult social and political issues and create an environment in which contemporary urban youth can express their experiences and perspectives to a diverse audience of adults and youth from New York City and beyond.
Young people can get involved in YO! by applying to the free after-school performance training program, an integrated course of intensive performance classes volunteer teachers with pofessional theater training. Theater professionals are needed to teach various improvisation and technical classes during the Fall, Spring, or Summer. The Fall and Spring schedule is a ten week program that meets once a week for 90 minute classes. The Summer program runs four times a week for 60 minute classes.
We'll work with your schedule.
