February: On The Fly
Youth Company members gather to create On The Fly, an impromptu performance of original works-in progress. In just three hours, students write, rehearse and stage a dynamic evening of theater drawn from the work they have done in the first half of the year. The resulting showcase is the YC's first full performance before an invited audience of theater and arts education professionals.
An exhilarating evening of original monologues, scenes, music, and ensemble pieces, UnCensored is a celebration of the work developed in Acting Lab over the year. Actors write and rehearse the show during April vacation in preparation for multiple performances at an Off-Broadway theater. Reserve tickets to Uncensored 2013
August: The FreshPlay Festival
The FreshPlay Festival is a collection of one-act plays written by members of the Playwriting Lab and selected for production by a panel of MCC Theater's Literary and Education staff and professional directors and playwrights. The YC playwrights work side by side with seasoned directors, designers, dramaturges, and actors to bring their plays to life on stage.
