Creating a nurturing, innovative and stimulating theatrical experience as a means to enliven and inspire young people.
Sign your kids up for TYR!
Tomorrow Youth Repertory classes are a fantastic way for your children to learn new skills, and to build on their current abilities. But just as importantly, they are a wonderful opportunity to make new friends, and to learn the value of team-work. Tomorrow Youth Repertory classes emphasize community building, and teach young actors to appreciate that everyone around them is valuable and important. We strive to create a welcoming environment in which boys and girls from differing backgrounds and levels of experience can come together and learn to interact positively — and have a lot of fun in the process!
We have camps and classes year-round — ranging from acting and vocal classes to full-on productions. We strive to be constantly providing opportunities for every experience level. Take a look at what’s coming up:
