THE ROLES ARE REVERSED in this unique training program.
First Act Youth Company has developed a unique interdisciplinary training program in which the students take on the production roles! Each student will research and be interviewed for production roles, such as directing, stage managing, lighting and set design, choreographing, costuming and more. Once the production roles have been distributed, the students will hold auditions. Here’s the twist– all the actors are industry professionals! Once the cast has been decided, students get to work on planning the show. Students are assigned ‘mentors’ within the cast of professionals, who serve to provide guidance and regular check-ins to make sure the process is running smoothly.
Please note: FAYC will not be offering the mentorship program in the fall of 2020. Please stay tuned for more information regarding future mentorship programming.
