Youth Ensemble Theater’s Fall 2020 Programs


As we plan our programs for the fall – we are deciding between on-line, hybrid, or in person programs. If you’re interested in YET programs – will you take our 1-minute survey?

RECENT Youth Ensemble Theater Programs

Pandemic interrupted… In development!


Youth Ensemble Theater (YET)  is a theater institute for young people ages 9 to 18. Our theater programs engage emerging performers in a dynamic ensemble process to create and perform contemporary cutting edge theater that reflects the collective voice of diverse and divergent points of view and experiences.

YET’s theater institutes provide a safe space for young people to play as close to the edge in their art form as possible.  The purpose is to narrow the space between life and performance, and generate exceptional theater productions that are as complicated, riveting, and dynamic as the group of young people who originate them.

YET One Act Play Series 2019

In 2019, YET presented two weekends of contemporary theater in the YET One Act Play Series 2019 at the Byrdcliffe Theatre!  This year’s One Act Series included 13 plays from award-winning playwrights as well as an original play by one of very our teen thespians.
