Performance Opportunities

Want to be in a production at Youth Theatre Northwest? We have a variety of options for actors of all ages and skill levels.

Conservatory Productions (grades 5th-12th)

Conservatory Programs are for actors who are invested in training as well as performance. The program combines intensive workshops with a fully realized production. All three conservatory programs will meet once a week for ten weeks to work on the skills and techniques specific to the individual play. Conservatory students will then move into a seven-week daily rehearsal schedule in order to mount a production that will be featured on YTN’s Main Stage over a three-weekend run.

Non-Conservatory Productions (grades 1st-12th)

Non-Conservatory Productions are for students who are primarily interested in performing. The cast will go through a seven-week daily rehearsal process in order to mount a production that will be featured on YTN’s Main Stage over a three-weekend run.

Other Production Programs for Teens

Chaos Theory (grades 7th-12th): YTN's teen improv company. There are two teams-New Comers and Old Timers based on experience and they rehearse just once a week. Chaos Theory performs several times a year to full houses each time.
