The Centenary Stage Company Young Performers Workshop (YPW) is a musical theatre program under the auspices of the Centenary Stage Company, a not-for-profit professional Equity Theatre Company in residence at Centenary College. YPW is dedicated to the enrichment of young lives through the use of theatre arts and serves as a greenhouse for cultivating young theatre performers. The program is one of the few that offers both formal training and production experience while designed to meet the needs of beginning, intermediate and advanced young performers. Career -minded individuals can prepare for the rigors of a professional career, yet students not aiming for a professional career benefit from the program with its emphasis on discipline, self -worth and development of communication skills. The program includes the production of two major musicals.
