The Young Company program gives participants an incredible glimpse into what being a professional actor is all about, from the audition process, to the rehearsal hall and then performing on the Lighthouse Festival Theatre stage to an audience of 350.

“I get to witness the incredible personal growth of these young people as they work together on the production,” Lundgren shares. “The confidence they develop is just one of the reasons why the Young Company is so valuable.”

The group assembles for a three-week rehearsal period from July 24th to August 19th, which also includes team-building exercises, and introductory theatre training. The cast, supported by Lighthouse’s team of professional technicians and designers, then entertain audiences from across the region. Many Young Company graduates have gone on to study theatre arts, post-secondarily and some have continued on to professional careers in theatre! The tuition for our Young Company program is $375.

“Over the years the Young Company has grown from a fun theatre camp into a major part of Lighthouse’s summer season. It has become so big that it now demands its very own week of performances,” Lighthouse Artistic Director Derek Ritschel explains. “By delving in and fully immersing themselves in a theatre setting for four weeks straight, students leave this program with new skills and unforgettable experiences that will stay with them for life.”

Sleeping Beauty will be performed on the Lighthouse Festival Theatre stage from August 16 to 19. Tickets are available at the box office or online. For more information about LFT’s Young Company please visit the website or call our box office at (519) 583-2221.
