Young Production Company
The Young Production Company provides experiential learning for directors, designers, technicians, stage managers, and anyone interested in working behind-the-scenes. Students work with professional technicians at the Citadel Theatre in their respective fields before putting their new skills to work on the Young Performing Company workshop production.
Applications for the 2023-2024 season are now open!
In your application form, please indicate what area(s) of technical theatre, design, or production you are interested in (although you will be exposed to multiple disciplines throughout the course of the year) and why you’d like to be a part of the company. We want to hear what excites you most about this field!
The deadline for submissions is September 8, 2023.
There are no regularly scheduled classes for the Young Production Company. Classes will meet based upon the interest of participants and the availability of people and programs. Previous years have seen sessions in directing, stage management, production management, scenic painting, set/costume/lighting design, film/video design, etc. The company averages one session per month from September to February.
Beginning in March, students will be assigned to a backstage role on the Young Performing Company’s workshp production. They will work as Assistant Stage Managers, assistant directors, assistant designers, or in another area of interest. The performances are held at the end of May in the Rice Theatre at the Citadel.
