The 3×60 Youth Theatre Collective introduces youth and young adults to classical theatre training and play creation with the support of Theatre Ontario’s Youth Theatre Training Program.
Theatre 3×60 is now accepting applications for its 2017/18 Youth Theatre Collective, a free, unique 20 week creative performance art experience for Durham youth and young adults with an emphasis on classic stagecraft, playwriting, and process. With the guidance and mentorship of Theatre 3×60’s qualified theatre professionals and instructors, Theatre Collective members experience writing, collaborating, producing and performing their own work, while developing their performance and production skills. Through challenging hands-on theatre and writing exercises and activities, Theatre 3×60 Theatre Collective participants discover and explore theatre creation onstage and behind the scenes, including an end of program performance of original and scripted work.
The 3×60 Theatre Collective will be led by Theatre 3×60 artistic director, Carey Nicholson with guest professional artists and playwrights Audra Gray, Graeme Powell and Rob Corbett. The 3×60 Youth Theatre Collective has been made possible with the support of the Ontario Arts Council, through Theatre Ontario’s Youth Theatre Training Program, and Theatre 3×60 is proud to bring this unique program to Port Perry and North Durham. In addition to encouraging youth involvement in theatre, Theatre 3×60 supports artistic excellence, accessibility to theatre, and believes in using theatre as a tool to engage audiences throughout Durham through touring productions to schools, community workshops, staged readings and full productions.
The 3×60 Theatre Collective runs for 20 weeks, from September 25, 2017 to March 31, 2017, with sessions twice weekly on Tuesday evenings and Saturday afternoons. Location in Port Perry (TBC). The 3×60 Theatre Collective is open to all youth and young adults, ages 14 to 21, in Durham region and there is no fee to participate; however, space is limited to 20 participants and, upon acceptance, participants must commit to the full 20 week program.
