About the Youth Program

The goals of the Youth Theatre are

 

  • to provide local youth with an opportunity to be involved in any and all aspects of the production of theatre

  • to provide the community with theatre that is both artistically and educationally challenging

  • to help local youth develop an understanding of the potential of theatre for fostering human development, while also helping them understand the technical aspects of theatre

  • and to use theatre as a means of developing a sense of community.

For many years, the Geneva Theatre Guild Youth Theatre has been fortunate to receive a grant from the Wyckoff Family Foundation. Each summer, the Youth Theatre invites all area youth to take part in a production staged in late July or early August. All interested students are given a part in the production. Students also have the opportunity to work on scenery, lighting, make-up, or other production areas under the guidance of adult volunteers.

In 2013, the Youth Theatre held Dramatic Inventions instead of a summer musical. Dramatic Inventions was four weeks of intense theatrical endeavors including drama, voice, and dance.

 

The Youth Theatre is a community-based program that depends on the support of individuals, local businesses and the cooperation of the Geneva City School District in providing programs open to all area youth free of charge.
