The Young Company (TYC)
The TYC experience is an introduction to the world of professional theater. Having been cast through an audition process of prepared monologues and cold readings, the company engages in an intense four-week rehearsal period, which includes table work and exploration of meter, status, voice, and movement. Working with professional directors and designers, this program culminates with ticketed performances on the Margeson Theater stage.
Admission is by audition only and open to students entering 9th Grade through graduating high school seniors.

The Young Company was conceived in 1991 by Dr. Stuart Omans and Judith Rubinger as the primary educational branch of the Orlando Shakespeare Theater. Servicing local high school youth of economically diverse communities who are predisposed toward the performing arts, The Young Company’s staff of professional artists use theater to facilitate the emotional, social, and academic growth of young people.
