About the 3×60 Youth Theatre Collective
The 3×60 Theatre Collective is a unique creative training and performance experience for Durham youth and young adults (14 – 21 years) with an emphasis on stagecraft, playwriting, and process. With the guidance and mentorship of Theatre 3×60’s qualified and diverse instructors, 3×60 Theatre Collective members experience writing, collaborating, producing and performing their own original work, while developing their performance and production skills. Through challenging and confidence building theatre exercises and activities, hands-on creation and production opportunities, 3×60 Theatre Collective participants discover and explore a complete theatrical experience onstage and behind the scenes, with a public studio performance held on the final session of the program. There are no program fees. Previous theatre experience is not required.
