Beyond the Youth Company

Experience Description

We are thrilled to announce the continuance of Premier Performance’s theatre education offerings: Beyond the Youth Company. This extension focuses on older actors who are unavailable to participate in the Youth Company but want to continue gaining valuable theatre experience alongside professional directors.


Beyond the Youth Company is a Technical Theatre based addition to our programming. Students will have the opportunity to experience one of the following categories on an in-depth level under the supervision of our professional team: Sound Design & Operation, Light Design & Operation, Hair & Makeup Design & Application, Assistant Directing, and Assistant Choreographer.

We consider this a Mentorship Program for the students in our community. Our goal is to encourage any older students who want to continue to explore their place in theatre by offering this hands-on learning opportunity. Students will gain an introductory level of education in their preferred discipline from research to design to execution. It is a wonderful chance for students to find their “place” in theatre…or try something new!

How to Apply

Interested students must complete an online application. They will also be asked to create a short resume of experience, and they will be evaluated during an informal interview process. All applications must be received by the office no later than 9/16. There is no charge to participate in this program, but once a student is accepted and the schedule is set, we do expect their commitment to all determined dates/duties. Students who are accepted may receive a small stipend at the end of the process as a thank you for their hard work and dedication to the production.
