YET Jr. is an introduction to YET for young people entering grades 4 – 6. Here actors play theater games that are designed to build ensemble techniques, generate big joy and also cultivate foundational acting techniques for the stage.

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.
