YouTheatre is the Bexley Theatre Arts program designed for students in grades 1 through 5.  The purpose of YouTheatre is to learn, explore, and develop theatre fundamentals such as reading, movement, character analysis, voice, and group work through creative and fun learning atmospheres.  High School and Middle School students play a big role in YouTheatre activites, and they can help mentor younger students.

There are two YouTheatre events during each season:  the YouTheatre play for grades 3-5, and YouTheatre Drama Camps   for grades 1 and 2.

YouTheatre Play

The YouTheatre Play is for students in grades 3 through 5.  Students must memorize lines, be able to work well with their peers, take directions, maintain a positive, mature attitude during long rehearsals--especially when they aren't on stage, and they still have to act their parts.  But the experience is fun and rewarding, even though it is a big time commitment.

This year, the YouTheatre play is Jolly Roger and the Pirate Queen, a comedic adventure on the high seas where nearly everyone on the cast plays a pirate.  Auditions for the YouTheatre play are held in the Cassingham Theater.  In order to audition, students should memorize a short poem.  Students should try to use movement and voice in order to bring their poems to life.  Please visit the audition page under the student tab for more details.

You can download the
 audition form and crew interview form by going to the Forms page under Parents.

YouTheatre Drama Camps

Every year, Bexley offers drama camps for students in grades 1 and 2.  These camps are to help develop basic theatre skills through imaginary play, theatre games, and short skits.  High school students will be "staffers" and will mentor our youngest students. 

Informational letters and registration forms will be emailed to all parents of students in grades 1 and 2 in August.  Please fill out and send in your registration materials as soon as possible in order to secure your spot as space is incredibly limited.

This year, the drama camps will be held on August 28, 29, 30, 31 and September 1

Camp forms will be available for download on the Forms page under the Parents tab.
