YET Programs 2018-2019
YET Teen is a pre-professional theater institute for our most seriously-minded YETis. YET Repertory does a one-act play festival, where actors undergo a rigorous rehearsal process to bring contemporary one act plays by master playwrights to performance. YET Teens also create original multimedia performance pieces, which engage the audience in fresh new work representing divergent points of view.
YET Jr. actors undergo an intensive, innovative, ensemble theater process of developing original characters and plays utilizing a long-form improvisational process.
YET Summer Institutes Provide children and teens with well-rounded training in Acting and Vocal techniques, and Stage movement.
YET Year-long 2018-2019
October 2018 – March 2019
YET Teen: (grades 7 – 12)
YET One Acts: Working with and performing scripted short plays. YETis will rehearse and perform scripted one act plays, in smaller groups, and learn the process of building a character, working with dialogue, and developing the world of a play as written by a playwright.
Saturdays 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
YET IMPRO: YETis create an original theater piece using YET’s long-form acting approach. YETis explore complex character relationships, character journeys and play structure, that take the audience on an interactive journey. (May include multimedia elements like video, sound effects, and original music.)
YET Jr. (grades 4 – 6)
Long-form theater – YETis learn how to use long-form improvisational techniques to create a play as an ensemble. They will learn how listening and response leads to acting technique, and how to develop a three-dimensional character, and live fully in the world of a play as part of an ensemble group art-making experience.
