Young Actors Conservatory (YAC)

YAC 2012

The Young Actors Conservatory (YAC) is a unique summer intensive that offers conservatory-style training for Houston-area middle and high school students. Led by recognized theatre professionals, YAC master classes encourage participants to explore every facet of dramatic production.

Using a total immersion method, students develop scripts; create costumes, sets and props; design lights and sound; learn movement and voice techniques; and rehearse and perform roles. Building on what they’ve learned, students focus on a central theme to conceptualize, write, design and perform an original theatre piece, combining the students’ own material with texts taken from the work of well-known writers. The program culminates in a fully realized production of this work at Stages Repertory Theatre. Mark your calendars now and plan on joining us to see all of our talented conservatory participants for FREE!

YAC is divided into two different sessions: the first for middle school students, to be held June18 – 29; and the second for high school students, with classes July 9 – August 4. Once again this year admission to the high school program is by audition only, and tuition is FREE for all participants, thanks in part to contributions from a generous group of donors.
