CATS Theatre Company is committed to providing young actors with the opportunity to develop a more in depth theatre training experience in a professional theatre environment taught by expert teaching educators in the performing arts field. By audition only, our curriculum is designed to providing young actors with the vocabulary, experiences and theatrical techniques necessary for challenging theatrical and musical productions. CATS YTC is proud to open its doors to aspiring young actors who believe in the magic of theatre. Our enriched actor-training program is a excellent stepping stone for youth to engage in the creative process of musical theatre production in front of live audience.
Children’s Arts Theatre School is thrilled to announce the opening of its new youth theatre company (YTC) that aims to nurture the development of self-confidence and artistic skills of youth. As a participant of this theatre company, you can expect to work hard, make a lot of new friends and perform in a final production at the end of the Spring season.
