YOUNG PEOPLE’S THEATER WORKSHOP

We are excited to offer this awesome long-standing summer youth theater programming IN PERSON! Last year we pivoted with the uncertain times and went digital for the first time in 30 years of this fantastic camp, but this year we are together again!

As with so many things in our world right now, gathering in person will be dependent on what is deemed safe by the CDC, Minnesota Department of Health, our teachers, and you. If for any reason classes and/or performances cannot take place as scheduled, we will work with you to offer an online or outdoor option, reschedule the program/ticket or refund you in full.

Friday, July 30 | 10:00am

ALL PERFORMANCES ARE $5 AND WILL BE HELD AT THE NORTHFIELD HIGH SCHOOL AUDITORIUM

ABOUT YPTW

Young People’s Theater Workshop (often referred to as YPTW) is in its 31st year of educational theater programming! YPTW offers experiences in creative drama and performance. Starting with a given theme, each age group works with a director to create, rehearse and perform an original script. These unique scripts meld together for a fun and exceptional show. Most mornings, students also attend theater arts and dance classes. Past Young People’s Theater Workshops have included such themes as Making Waves, Something Wicked this Way Comes, Passages and Break Down the Wall(s). The Young People’s Theater Workshop culminates with performances for the public. YPTW is a tuition based educational theater program.

WHO?

YPTW is open to students entering grades 3-12. Students are placed in groups up to 14 students according to their age. All students come together for morning and end-of-day meetings.

Who will be working with the students? Beth Breiland will manage and lead the program, and we hope to have the expertise and advice of Bob Gregory-Bjorkland as well. Other YPTW staff includes theater artists, classroom teachers and highly-qualified theater majors.
