Youth Theatre Outreach

ATG Youth Theatre Outreach Information

ATG Youth Theatre Outreach comprises four initiatives designed to foster the theatre education of young performers and develop collaborations with high-school drama programs in the greater Albuquerque area.

1. YOUTH THEATRE SCHOLARSHIPS

The purpose of this program is to help children and youth between the ages of 5 and 17 participate in theatre-education programs provided by ATG member organizations after school or during the summer. Each year since 2009, ATG has offered eligible students tuition scholarships worth up to $100 each. Applications are due in early May for scholarships tenable between June 1 and May 30 of the following year. For further information, please visit http://www.abqtheatre.org in the spring or e-mail .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

2. HIGH SCHOOL PREVIEW NIGHTS

The purpose of this program is to broaden the theatre experience of students by arranging for them to attend preview performances of selected productions by ATG member organizations. Working with a Guild coordinator, drama teachers plan outings for their students to appropriate previews at little or no cost. Talk-backs between the students and the directors and casts of the plays take place after most performances. For further information, please e-mail Valerie Scott at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

3. HIGH SCHOOL THEATRE WORKSHOPS

The purpose of this program is to enhance the educational experience of drama students by supplementing the instruction offered in their school courses. ATG members volunteer to lead workshops on different aspects of theatre production. Then an ATG coordinator helps put them in touch with drama teachers who would like their students to know more about the subjects available through the workshops. For further information, please e-mail Paula Stein at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

4. ATG HIGH SCHOOL ORGANIZATIONAL MEMBERSHIPS

Secondary-school theatre programs and Thespian Troupes may become organizational members of the Albuquerque Theatre Guild. Benefits of membership include posting privileges on the ATG website and Facebook page and advertising privileges in the ATG brochure, "Albuquerque Spotlight on Live Theatre." Dues are adjusted to levels appropriate to school programs. For further information, click on "Members" to the left and then on "Membership Information," or send e-mail to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Youth Theatre Scholarships Deadline for 2015-2016

The deadline for applications to the 2015-16 ATG Youth Theatre Scholarship Program is May 7. A tuition scholarship is worth up to $100 for a class with approved ATG organizational members next summer or during the next school year. We encourage applicants to finish (or begin) filling out the application as soon as possible because it requires an essay and letters of recommendation, and so cannot be completed at the last minute. Please see the Youth Theatre Scholarship feature page for full details and to download the application form.
