On Camera – Youth Theatre Northwest

On Camera

13 Fan Videos

Youth Theatre Northwest's production of the musical 13 was scheduled for this year's Summer Season but, due to COVID-19 restrictions, it has been postponed to next year. Rather than sit around and mope, though, we figured out a safe way to still sing and dance and celebrate the talent of these young artists. We hope this video series will cheer you up, generate some good energy, and give you something to look forward to for next year. It certainly did those things for all of us at YTN.

2019 Teen Horror Film, See Me  

(Best for age 12+)

In 2018, Youth Theatre Northwest launched its first-ever filmmaking project, Summer of Horror. A small group of teens created their very own horror film from scratch. What started as an experiment has grown and evolved into a larger program.  

Summer of Horror: Students from grades 6 to 12 hone on-camera skills acting in horror shorts that are shot during the summer months. The footage is professionally shot, edited, scored, and directed.  The films premiere during the Halloween season both at YTN and at the SIFF Film Center. 

Classes: Throughout the year, we offer on-camera acting classes for grades 3 through 12 covering everything from commercials to scenes to creating their own short films.
