Young Companies

The Citadel Theatre Young Companies is an advanced training and mentorship program for aspiring artists between the ages of 16-21 who are serious about pursuing post-secondary education and a career in theatre.

There are four companies, offering specialized training in acting, musical theatre, playwriting, and theatre production (directing, stage management, design, tech) all taught by a team of outstanding theatre professionals. In addition to core training, members of the Young Companies have the opportunity to participate in specialized workshops with a variety of leading theatre professionals, and resident and guest artists. Their training culminates in performances for the acting and musical companies, and staged readings for the young playwrights. The young technical theatre production company students work on all of these events.

We are committed to moving forward with our training program and will look at alternative methods of program delivery if required for part of the season. We will update all applicants as new information is available.
