The Port Theatre is seeking exceptional youth between the ages of 15-24 to be part of a Youth Working Group!

The Youth Working group will provide opportunities for 8-10 youth in the Nanaimo region to get involved with and make contributions to the local arts community.

 The group will organize a professional performance at The Port Theatre for National Youth Art Week in May of 2015. Under the guidance and expertise of The Port Theatre’s staff, youth will learn every aspect of programming for the theatre—from selecting an artist to creating a budget to marketing and outreach. 

“Our hope is to remove barriers to participation in the performing arts for young people, and nurture youths’ potential desire to work in the arts.” General Manager Bruce Halliday 

If you are a young person that would like to be involved please contact Melanie Godel e: mgodel@porttheatre.com t: 250-754-4555 Ext 304

This program is made possible with generous support from The BC Touring Council.
