Youth On Stage
Grosse Pointe Theatre’s Youth on Stage has been an annual offering to the community since 2001. The program teaches basic acting and performance techniques by participating in classroom sessions and by participating in a live performance under the guidance and direction of seasoned actors and directors from Grosse Pointe Theatre.
The program offers an opportunity for parents and older siblings to participate in the Youth on Stage shows by helping with sets, costumes, props, makeup and back stage crews.
Youth on Stage provides a safe, cooperative environment where boys and girls from ages eight to 14 can develop a positive self-image while learning various aspects of theatre including:
- Audition Preparation
- Rehearsal Process
- Acting Techniques
- Character Analysis and Improvisational Skills
- Speech Projection and Clarity
- Mental and Physical Preparation for Roles
