Created in 1999, the NHTP Youth Repertory Company is designed for passionate, gifted students who want to experience a professional theatrical community in a conservatory-style program. Repertory Company alumni have stressed that participation in this program was an important factor in their college acceptances. Alumni also praise the Youth Repertory program for teaching them leadership, public speaking, teamwork, critical thinking, confidence, and problem-solving skills. By senior year, participants will have completed all K-12 curriculum requirements for drama in the national education standards. Many students work with their high school Extended Learning Opportunities programs to receive academic credit for participation. Check out our Youth Rep Co Alumni Blogspot!
Participation in the NHTP Youth Repertory Company is by audition only. Attendance at all workshops, master classes, rehearsals and performances is mandatory. Thanks to a generous endowment from the Cherylanne Williams Scholarship Fund at the NH Charitable Foundation, some scholarship opportunities are available each year to both the Junior & Senior Companies. Scholarship awards are based on both merit and financial need. Please inquire for additional information.
