Stages Youth Theatre
Gabrielle Eyford (250) 730 2001

Port Alberni, British Columbia
STAGES Youth Theatre for ages 4 and up. Created by Teresa Drew and Wendy Karpuik Taught by Teresa Drew, Naomi Boutwell, Carrera Schroeder, and NEW this September 2018, to our regular classes and Company Two Class Nicole Saugstad Gain experience in acting, costume design, memorization, set design, script writing, and much more through the production of three plays per year at the Capitol Theatre.
Come have fun with our regular weekly classes taught by Nicole Saugstad on Monday and Tuesday, or if you are looking for something a bit more challenging, you could audition for our Company Two class also taught by Nicole Saugstad. This class is a bit more challenging and is expected to help crew the Company One production every Spring. Company Two and the regular classes act in two shows per year; The Works, a variety style show produced every December and our Big Spring Production every June.
For those students really interested in the theatre arts we offer our Company One Classes taught by Naomi Boutwell. Students must audition in late August/Early September to get into this class. These classes are held hourly twice a week to start, with the classes getting longer as we get closer to the one big show in the early spring. Students learn stagecraft like lights and sound as well as character work. There is a huge time commitment expected of these students as well as an expectation that they work hard at home to learn their lines and do assigned homework. This class is a lot of work, but there is a lot to be proud of as well when we present our work to the public in April/May.
Students in the Company One class are also expected to crew the regular class shows in December and June
Students that participate in STAGES Youth Theatre and, more importantly, move into STAGES Company One class often find themselves pursuing post-secondary education in the theatre arts. STAGES Youth Theatre teaches them all that they need to know to be quickly accepted into the arts school, college theatre program, or university theatre program of their choosing.
