Algonquin Youth Ensemble (AYE) is an arts and youth development program that gives youth, ages 8 and older, the opportunity to participate in the creation of professional theatre at the Algonquin Arts Theatre. Students participate in a twelve-week, six-hour per week intensive acting class with experienced masters in the theatre profession. These classes are designed to help AYE members learn the craft of theatre, while preparing for their role in a professional production. Students gain an opportunity to practice teamwork, time management, public speaking and conflict resolution.
The program has continued to grow with participation in productions including Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Oliver!, Scrooge! and more. With growth come financial challenges. Your donation will directly support AYE and give students a chance to thrive in their element, grow as an artist, and gain life-changing confidence, as well as life-long friendships.
