Free Professional Training for Young People
Learn by doing with Cape Rep Professional Artists
About the Young Company:
Cape Rep’s Young Company Initiative (YoCo) provides free professional theater training to young local actors eighth grade through high school eager to learn the craft of acting through an intensive rehearsal and production process. All interested students are welcomed into this free annual program. The company has consisted of young men and women whose hometowns stretched the length of the Cape to the South Shore from Plymouth to Wellfleet.
Come work with Cape Rep’s professional artists and do a play that will push you physically, emotionally and creatively to become a better actor. Your training includes acting, voice and speech, movement and stage combat, text analysis, audition preparation, lots of games and more! Led by Associate Artistic Director, Maura Hanlon, YoCo meets 3 days per week beginning in December (with a break for the holidays) and culminates in a production on the Main Stage of Cape Rep’s Indoor Theater in 3 public performances.
2017’s inaugural production of Macbeth was a huge hit with both audiences and the young actors involved. And 2018’s Great Expectations truly exceeded all expectations. This season’s production of The Odyssey will play February 8 at 7pm and February 9 at 2pm & 7pm.
