Take the Spotlight this Summer

The Experiment

The Experiment | 4th-12th

Located at: Camp Rivervale, Mitchell, IN 

Camp Theme: Adventure Earth

4th-12th grade students will hone their confidence, grow their creativity, and challenge their discipline in our annual, week long sleep away camp! Students can join YAT staff and professional artists for a technology-free week unlike any other: an immersive theatrical experience inspired by our one and only home planet that bridges theatre and environmental science curriculums. By connecting with our natural surroundings we will find a deeper connection with ourselves and with each other. This summer's theatrical experience will explore those connections and dive deep into the Indiana wilderness. Pulling inspiration from what we learn about the natural world, we'll build an immersive theatrical experience as well as a better understanding of our place in the world.

July 5th-11th

Classic YAT | 4th-12th

Directed by: Georgeanna Smith-Wade | Assistant Director: Alethea Harnish

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Our biggest show yet! William Shakespeare’s classic comedy will be brought to life in the historic Basile Theatre...and we do mean IN the theatre, not just on the stage! Come participate in a site-responsive experience directed by one of Indianapolis’ top site-responsive directors.
Everyone who signs up will get a role, but we will have an “audition day” Wednesday, May 20. Classic YAT performances are run more like traditional theatre, not Self-Empowerment Theatre. That means you might not be called to every single rehearsal!

Assistant directors and stage managers needed!
