ACT has a long history of being a home for local artists to work and grow as craftspeople and community members. The Young Core Company builds on that legacy for a new generation, cultivating a professional theatre environment in a culture of fun, inclusion, and supported risk-taking. The YCC welcomes actors, writers, directors, stage managers, and designers. We encourage each other to be fearless in pathways of creativity. Connecting artistry with civic engagement and social justice, we examine the roles and responsibilities of the artist in community, culture, and city and challenge expectations of what youth theatre looks like.
