The Young Company

Free Professional Training for Young People

Learn by doing with Cape Rep Professional Artists

About the Young Company:

Cape Rep Theatre invites young people grades 8 through 12 to be part of our Young Company. Cape Rep’s Young Company Initiative (YoCo) provides free professional theater training to young local actors 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 2019/20 company consisted of over 30 young artists, whose hometowns stretched from Plymouth to Wellfleet, culminating in an incredible production of Once In A Lifetime.

Due to Covid-19, we will be approaching the Young Company differently this year. We are actually really excited about the possibilities and the process. Our hope is to do as much in person as we safely can, utilizing our 7-acre campus, over a longer time frame.

2020/2021 Program

Info Session: Saturday, October 24, at noon, outside at Cape Rep Theatre, 3299 Rt. 6A, Brewster. Masks are mandatory.

Our past productions of Macbeth, Great Expectations , The Odyssey and Once In A Lifetime were a huge success with audiences and the young actors involved.
