Venice Theatre is fortunate to have teens in our midst who are talented, intelligent and fun to be around.

We are always looking for new ways to challenge them. Recently, a group of young actors, with the support of the Education & Community Engagement Department, proposed a new program that allows them to spread their wings and rise to a new level of leadership in the organization. 

The Youth Production Company (YPC):
  • creates opportunities for high school age students to develop exceptional & unique portfolio material for college applications.
  • creates additional performance and technical opportunities for area youth.
  • creates an environment for students to create art on their own terms, where they are responsible for all aspects of the project.
  • develops 21st century workplace skills (collaboration, communication, problem solving, and creativity)
