GREATER BOSTON STAGE COMPANY'S EDUCATION MISSION
The Young Company at Greater Boston Stage Company helps the next generation become better artists, better audience members, and better people through dramatic education.
ABOUT THE YOUNG COMPANY
The Young Company is Greater Boston Stage Company’s year-round education program for students in grades 1-12, offering training in acting, voice, and dance in a professional setting.
Through artistic training and performance opportunities, The Young Company at Greater Boston Stage Company develops life skills such as confidence, self-discipline, and collaboration to inspire and prepare young actors for future creative engagement and success. Our process-oriented programming pushes students to the next level by working with exceptional Boston teaching artists and theatre professionals. Students are also provided with opportunities to work on Mainstage productions side-by-side with professionals.
The Young Company lives by the idea that GOOD THEATRE MAKES GOOD PEOPLE.
Good theatre is created when the audience, the text, and the actor are all engaged. We believe this requires trust, confidence, and empathy – traits which inspire individuals to become responsible community members.
