Led by Associate Artistic Director Maura Hanlon, the Young Company takes on Shakespeare’s thrilling romance, Winter’s Tale. Jealousy, desire, power, betrayal redemption, and Shakespeare’s most famous stage direction, “Exit, pursued by bear.” all come together to weave a sweeping tale of the triumph of love and forgiveness.
The Young Company features a talented group of 39 students with hometowns stretching from Plymouth to Wellfleet supported by Cape Rep Company artists. Now in its 7th year, YoCo provides free professional theater training to local young people grades 8 through 12 eager to learn the craft of acting through an intensive rehearsal and production process. All interested students are welcomed into this free annual program.
