YES, Jr. is a brand new program designed for kids with a passion for theater in grades 4-6. From January-March the YES, Jr. company will see three shows at Northern Stage with a master class beforehand and talkbacks afterwards. Over February vacation week they will rehearse and perform a 30 minute play that focuses on acting technique.

This play is the core of the YES, Jr. experience. In the course of 5 days the YES, Jr. company will rehearse and perform a 30 minute play. Directed by Eric Love, the emphasis of this play will be on voice & speech, listening to your scene partner, responding honestly in the moment, and creating fun characters. There may be a few props and costumes, but the focus will be on the acting process rather than the production product. There will be a performance for friends and family at 4pm on Friday, February 23rd.
