Are you 14-17 years old?
Are you interested in learning more about the theatre industry?
If so, Carousel Players’ Youth Committee is for you!
What is the Youth Committee?
As a part of the Youth Committee, you will have the opportunity to help Carousel Players with different activities, meet with other people interested in theatre, and learn about how Carousel Players, a theatre for young audiences, works. You will meet with the other members of the committee and Carousel Players staff to get to know each other, discuss activities, and learn about Carousel Players and theatre.
Activities you will help with include volunteering at Carousel’s shows and outreach events when they are local to you, reading and discussing plays with the Artistic Director, acting as ambassadors for Carousel Players back to your communities or schools, and more! Additionally, the time you spend with Carousel Players will count towards your high school community service hours. You will also have the opportunity, if you desire, to develop skills such as communication, decision-making, public speaking, confidence, and leadership.
Who can apply?
Students ages 14-17 or in Grades 9-11 who have a passion for theatre.
How often does the committee meet?
The Committee will meet once a month for 1-1.5 hours from September 2021 – May 2022. You may be asked to perform duties or participate in activities outside of monthly meetings that will also count towards your community service hours, however that will be discussed on a case-by-case basis and would never exceed 5 hours per month.
