The Program

KCRep Summer Youth Theatre Ensemble is a free summer program open to young artists ages 13-17. Summer Youth Theatre Ensemble artists engage in an interactive rehearsal process packed full of high-energy games, ensemble-building activities, and playwriting exercises designed to cultivate creative and life skills. Together, they collaborate with KCRep teaching artists to build a performance that is their own and perform it for the public on KCRep’s main stage, Spencer Theatre. No previous theatre experience is required to participate!



Our 2019 SYTE performances was on Friday, July 26th at 7pm and Saturday, July 27th at 2pm.
