The SCSC Youth Company
The SCSC Youth Company is an educational outreach program of the South Carolina Shakespeare Company (SCSC), the premier classical theatre company in the Midlands.
The SCSC Youth Company is an acting ensemble of interested high school students who would like the opportunity to explore and enhance their theatrical creativity. The students who comprise The SCSC Youth Company will be taught and trained by some of the most skilled and accomplished professional actors in our state. Members of The SCSC Youth Company will get the chance to work on the two major productions of the SCSC held in the fall and spring. In addition, twice a year The SCSC Youth Company members will be cast in their own productions: a Shakespeare play and a contemporary work. The productions will be will be directed by one of the Shakespeare Company's Associate Directors.
Master classes are designed to address the changing needs of today's future actors. Both classical and contemporary classes are given each year including monologues and scene study, musical theatre, improvisation, mask work, modern and classical dances, voice and diction, movement for the stage, and audition techniques.
There is no membership fee! The program is paid for through grants and the generosity of friends and supporters of the SCSC. All we ask is that you invest your time and share your energy. You pay your dues by doing three things: (1) attending all SCSC Youth Company workshops, (2) perform, usher, or assist with the both SCSC productions, and (3) awake your imagination to a fun and challenging experience of infinite variety and creativity!
