Introducing PEP! (Players Education Program)
Theatre Education is at the heart of our operations and mission — giving back to our amazing community of emerging and seasoned artists. We're proud to introduce PEP!, or Players Education Program!
We're working to bring unique and special opportunities to the community. Here are some of the programs we're excited to offer:
CREATIVITY BEHIND THE CURTAIN
Offering a behind the scenes look into the creative processes that make the magic of theatre! This program expands professional development opportunities, classroom workshops, and partners with organizations to cater to young adults within under-served communities.
YOUNG CREATIVE ARTIST SERIES
A mentorship program designed for high school students that want to initiate and create! This program gives students the opportunity to product, direct, and perform a piece in our Studio Theatre while receiving hands-on development from local theatre professionals.
Aiming to develop the next generation of theatre voices right here in Jacksonville! New Voices is a new play development program where aspiring playwrights are taken through a yearlong development process to have their script taken from idea to production.
Introducing young artists to the magic and endless possibilities of theatre! Our Summer Camps are an amazing experience for budding artists to engage with elements of storytelling that may be new and exciting to them!
Adapting to the changing world in the midst of a pandemic, we've utilized the "power of virtual" to reach young artists where they are, no matter what.
