ABOUT THE PLAYHOUSE YOUTH COMPANY: The Playhouse Youth Company is a 5-week intensive training program for students with a serious interest in theater to receive valuable theatrical instruction from working Broadway artists. Bucks County Playhouse’s rigorous training program includes daily rehearsals for a professionally produced production; master classes with artists from the Playhouse’s main stage; and outreach performances throughout the region. Each year the Playhouse Youth Company performs for more than 3,000 people on the Playhouse mainstage and in outreach performances at local libraries, museums and festivals.
Young performers who earned a spot in the 2019 company participated in daily workshops and classes including musical theater performance, acting, dance, voice and improvisation, while also attending guest workshops led by working theater professionals. Their work culminated in a fully produced production of Shrek The Musical, Jr. The production was under the direction of Broadway and Television actress/director Kate Wetherhead, who recently appeared at the Playhouse in Ebenezer Scrooge’s Big Playhouse Christmas Show and on Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”
