Summer Festival 2023

Hello Friends,

Summer is just around the corner and we could not possibly be more excited for another amazing Summer Festival. Why is the Summer Festival one of our favorite times of the year and why should you be rushing to register right now? Good questions!

The Summer Festival is the perfect time for us in The Young Company to spread our belief that “Good Theatre Makes Good People!” What does that mean? Another Good Question!

We have stacked our Summer Festival with the greatest theatre educators in the Boston area who all know the truly magnificent impact that theatre education has on individuals, and in turn, their communities. We work every day to push our students to the next level in singing, dancing, and acting.

Even more, we create a space where performers develop agency, communication, and leadership skills that will help them succeed both as artists, and more importantly, active community members.

On top of all of this, we also feel that Summer is a time to have fun! Creating theatre and connecting with audiences brings an unmatched level of joy that every human should experience.

Whether you’ve been doing theatre your entire life or this will be your first time on stage, the Summer Festival has something new and exciting for you.

We have students returning for their 10th (or more!) Summer Festival. If that isn’t a sign that we are doing something wonderful, we don’t know what is.

Hope to see you soon!

“Summer Festival has become a second home to me. It has fostered my love for theatre in ways I could have never imagined, and you’ll only find that experience at GBSC. In addition, I have been welcomed into a family of both youth and adults that have shown me what true compassion looks like”

– Young Company Student

Act 1: Entering Grades 4 to 6

Act 2: Entering Grades 7 to 9

Act 3: Entering Grads 10 to 12 and 2023 High School Graduates

Our programs are separated by grades as a way for us to develop specific educational goals that we feel align with those ages. That said, we understand that in education one size fits none, so our programs all have a level of flexibility to align with where your student is right now. This shows in overlapping casting in our Act 1, 2, and 3 shows. If you have a rising 4th grader who is interested in our Overture program, please reach out!
