The Young Artist Training Program (YATP) provides elevated, high quality theatre, music, and musical theatre education to students ages 8-18. The coursework allows for sequential training to continue developing your skills as you grow through the program and is designed to complement the theatre and music education taught in middle schools and high schools. The YATP also offers unique workshopssummer camps, and intensives as a means of continuing to develop your skills with guest faculty. 

Participation in a comprehensive training program prepares students for auditions, expands their knowledge beyond a singular production, and creates a network for artistic youth in our community. Participation in workshops, camps, and intensives gives the students a chance to challenge themselves and learn from a variety of performing arts professionals. Training opportunities are held during regular school semesters and over the summer.  

NOTE: Health and safety protocols as determined for the SCC campus are strictly enforced for all YATP programming.
