Summer Stage Young Acting Company 2022

Learn more about SYAC >>

In conjunction with the Young Playwright’s Contest winners, students of the Young Acting Company dive into character development to produce new works at theREP. During the rehearsals, students get hands-on training in stage movement, speech and acting for the stage from professionals in the field.

Our students this year got to learn and perform six brand new shows in the Black Box Theatre at theREP. The plays were written as part of the Young Playwright’s Contest where students 13-19 years old write plays to receive a public reading of the play in theREP’s NEXT ACT! New Voices event. Over the course of three weeks, the SYAC students learn tricks of the trade from theatre professionals. Then, students in Summer Stage Young Acting Company (SYAC) perform these shows for a live audience.
