Will Annie foil Miss Hannigan's evil machinations and find a new home and family? Come find out at YST’s production, complete with favorites like “Hard-Knock Life”, “Easy Street”, and “Tomorrow”.

June-August 2017
Young Starts Theatre Summer Camps 2017!

YST is offering summer musical theatre camps at the Fremont! Program directors Jack and Gloria Bennett produced their first theatre camp in the summer of 1997, and have since produced 13 camps and over 100 shows together, most with all-youth casts.

YST is offering 3 sessions this summer, for 1, 2 or 3 weeks, with opportunities and challenges to accommodate the beginning youth actor and the working professional.

YST camp is the place for the youth actor who wants to grow as an actor and have the time of their lives. YST camp trains the actor in all aspects of performance, helping their skill set expand while producing a high level show. If your child is up to the challenge, YST summer camp is the place for them!

Fees for the camps do apply, but work and fiancialneed scholarships are available. For more information, and to register, visit: YoungStarsTheatre.org. Space is limited, so register now!
