Announcing: Empress Youth Theatre

The Empress Theatre, which has been producing live community theater productions since 2006, is proud to announce its newest venture, Empress Youth Theatre (EYT).  Under the direction of Andrea Fife, EYT will provide a training grounds for the youth of the theater community, helping them develop talents in the areas of acting, singing, dancing, and performance.

Instruction will happen in a workshop format with participants enrolling for a specific duration.  Summer workshops will be an intense four weeks of rehearsal while fall and spring workshops will be spread out over a two month period.  Most of the workshop time will be spent rehearsing scenes, songs, and choreography for the culminating performances.  But sometimes, the performers will get to relax a bit as they learn from some of the talented and prominent members of Utah's theater community.

The Empress expects the effects of EYT to be far-reaching as these youth take the skills they've learned to their high school and community stages.  They'll also earn a confidence and pride which will benefit them in all aspects of their lives.
