Grand Youth After School Theatre Program

The Grand Youth After School Theatre Program sends theatre instructors and SLCC students into local schools and organizations to provide free engaging performing arts workshops as part of existing after school programs. Participating students receive instruction on a variety of theatrical processes, including performing, playwriting, and designing, while working with instructors and peers to create their own short plays. Workshops are made to be accessible to students at all theatrical experience levels, and promise to provide fun and creative learning opportunities. The program culminates in a Student Performance Showcase at the SLCC Grand Theatre, allowing participants to perform the plays they’ve created with friends and family.

Please contact us if your school or organization is interested in participating in the after school program.
