YTN ANNEX 

June 24 - July 28

Ages 15 - 20

YTN Annex, a program for high school and college aged actors, returns after last summer’s She Killed Monsters. This program is designed for performers with more advanced skills looking for a play that will stretch their acting skills. In the past, YTN Annex had great success with Men on Boats, and She Killed Monsters, tackling scripts that deal with mature topics, complex structure, and powerful characters. Students will receive college level instructions and directions, while still working in a safe environment that is uniquely YTN 

Please note, content may include some adult language and may not be appropriate for all teens. The scripts choice is currently being finalized, and a more detailed content advisory will be available prior to auditions.

THE SPONGEBOB MUSICAL: YOUTH EDITION

July 8 - August 11

Grades 4th - 12th

Directed by Zoe Wilson


Who lives in a pineapple under the sea and became the hottest star on Broadway? Why, it's SpongeBob SquarePants! This one-hour edition of the hit Broadway musical, brilliantly adapted from the iconic Nickelodeon series, is specially tailored for young actors.

This summer, we are looking to do a truly all ages musical. The production will accommodate for a range of skills: principal roles that are challenging enough for advance level actors, and great featured/ensemble roles for intermediate/beginner actors. The process will facilitate older students stepping into role model positions for the younger students—one of the most appreciated aspects of YTN culture.  

Location: TBA

Music Camp: July 8-11 from 5:00 – 8:00 (at Emmanuel Church) 

Rehearsals: July 15-August 2 Mon-Fri 10:00-3:00 (location TBD) 

Performances: August 2-11 Fri at 7:00pm, Sat/Sun at 11:00am (location TBD) 

SUMMER OF HORROR

Directed by Kim Douthit

Now in its seventh season, Summer of Horror is back stronger than ever! 

Join us for a one-week intensive film shoot experience with professional film crew, production team, and a screen play written by a Hollywood screen writer. The selected cast will meet on location and experience how a short horror film is made from the actors’ perspective.  Films will then go through the editing process and premiere on the big screen at the end of October for YTN’s Halloween event. 

Please note, content may include some adult language and may not be appropriate for all teens. The scripts are currently being written and an outline/first draft of the scripts will be available for you to peruse by spring break.
