The Kelowna Actors Young Company is an advanced training and mentorship program for aspiring artists between the ages of 13-18 who are serious about pursuing post-secondary education and a career in theatre.
In addition to training, members participate in specialized workshops with a variety of leading theatre professionals culminating in performances for the community.
In addition, this years company is headed to New York City in August to attend three workshops on Broadway (Musical Theatre, Acting and The Business of Show Business) to help them in their future careers. The students have been tirelessly fundraising with chocolate bar sales, Krispy creme sales (you can still purchase them by going to our box office page), a garage sale (April 5th at 9am at Kelowna Actors Studio - The Alley behind the theatre ) and flower sales to help reach their goal!
On Tuesday, April 1, 2014 KAS will be having a Broadway Bound Revue - a night of your favourite Broadway tunes with members of the Young Company and special guests. The evening will include a full performance, dinner or show only options and silent auction. This will be the main contributing factor to ensure that their dream becomes a reality!
“I have seen that engagement with the arts has a positive impact on my young students; raising aspirations, increasing confidence, improving communication skills and unlocking creativity”!
