Important scheduling notes:

    • Everyone will be assigned to an afternoon or morning session, and requests can be honored
    • Please note this schedule carefully, as it differs from those of past summers.
  • Dress rehearsal, performance times, and even play choices may vary slightly based on enrollment. Please check back often or join our email list for up-to-date information.

YSP does not involve auditions or rejections. Any young person who registers will receive one or more substantial speaking roles.

YSP is committed to the principle that no one should be excluded from participation because of the costs of tuition. Anyone who needs a reduced tuition can select any rate above one-half the basic tuition fee and may opt to spread tuition payments over several months. If even one-half of the basic fee, spread over 4 monthly payments, is beyond your means, YSP will try to provide a larger scholarship or a more extended pay period.
