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:
We offer need-based scholarships for all our programs. Please see our Scholarship Policy below.
Our production of Hansel & Gretel is intended for all experience levels, with an age range of 7-12.

The camp will culminate in a full stage production complete with costumes, sets, lights, choreography and much much more. It's a summer experience not to be missed!
The camp will meet Monday-Friday from 9am-3pm at the Alameda High School Little Theater (Corner of Central & Walnut) from June 20th-July 15th (no class July 4th). Performances will be July 15-17th.
