Family Life Youtheatre is a drama ministry for kids and teens, ages 8-15. The heart of Youtheatre centers on teaching young people about the amazing world of performing arts and how to use their creativeness to honor God.
Produced by and for kids, a Youtheatre production is given at Family Life each Spring. Students study music, acting, and some forms of stagecraft. The shows presented are based on well-known stories that teach a moral lesson like The Secret Garden, Peter Pan, Chronicles of Narnia, and Charlotte’s Web.
Also held yearly, the summer Youtheatre workshops take place in multiple locations (including Family Life) from July to August. The workshop runs for five days and is perfect for students interested in more intensive training. Additional areas of study include costuming, makeup and voice. After five consecutive days of learning and rehearsing, the students present a full-blown production for parents and families featuring all their hard work!
