June 23rd through July 25th Mon-Fri from 10am -1pm

Showcase Performances Friday July 25th at 8pm, Saturday July 26th at 8pm, and Sunday July 27th at 2pm

YouthAware Out & United (Y.O.U.) is a new five week Queer Youth Theater intensive workshop for LGBTQI youth and their allies ages 14-20.

This workshop offers an opportunity for youth to explore and develop their unique voice through theater. This program is free.

The summer 2014 Y.O.U. program will be helmed by professional theater artists who will work with participants to devise scenes, monologues, poems, songs, or dance based on the real experiences of queer youth at school, at home, and in their community.

Prior acting experience is helpful, but not required. More important to have an enthusiasm and willingness to participate, share, grow, enlighten, and entertain this summer with Y.O.U.

The Y.O.U. program will run from June 23rd through July 25th Mondays through Fridays from 10am -1pm, and it will culminate with three showcase performances of material devised and rehearsed by youth participants, and directed by Y.O.U. teaching artists at NCTC’s Walker Theater.

Summer 2014 Y.O.U. participants must be avaliable to attend all program dates and performances.

Email YouthAware Program Director Sara Staley, sara@nctcsf.org , for more information, or to request a participant application.

Applications must be submitted online or via email by SUNDAY JUNE 1 st 2014.

After submitting your application, you will be contacted via email to schedule an interview at NCTC for scholarship consideration.
