If you’re going into grade 11 or 12 this Fall, and are interested in a unique training opportunity, then here's a chance to see what it’s all about!
YET members (or Yetis, as we affectionately call them) are students who have been nominated by their high school drama teachers for our program. Yetis meet once a week, on Sunday afternoons, to receive training from theatre professionals. This allows students who are interested in pursuing theatre arts as a career, or even as a hobby, to meet and learn from those who have a wealth of performance and/or backstage experience.
YET sessions include: Physical Theatre, Voice Work, Monologue Study, Improv, Playwriting, Stage Direction, Stage Management and Costume/Set Design. In April, the focus becomes mounting several one-act plays for the final Showcase.
If you are interested in finding out more about the YET, contact Alan K. Sapp, Education Director: firstname.lastname@example.org. Interviews/auditions for the class of 2013/14 will be in late September and early October. Enrollment is limited!
A very special thank you to the donors who supported this year's Yetis: Good Family Foundation, the Landmann Family Fund, and Youth in Recreation Fund (both through The K-W Community Foundation). Thank you for supporting the work of teaching and learning from the next generation of theatre artists.
Here are a few quotes from past participants:
"I loved meeting and learning from all of the different professionals".
"I loved that it was process based because then I was able to work at my own pace and I was responsible for my own work and success. There was so much more focus because we were a small group of dedicated people who were willing to do anything and really took things seriously. I've never experienced that true ensemble feeling and it was amazing."
"This kind of program isn't something that you find around much and I think learning new perspectives of the theatre every Sunday was neat."
Don't miss this year's YET Showcase!

Our philosophy in a nutshell: Lost&Found Theatre is committed to creating a safe, supportive environment. We focus as much on process as on final product, and emphasize ensemble and what it means to be a contributing part of something greater than the individual.
