Young Company

Young Company

Young Company’s 2019 Winter Improv Show will take place on Tuesday December 17 at 7pm and will feature a stage designed by Tech Track. The performance is free and you can reserve your tickets here.

Entering its 10th season, The Young Company uses the same ensemble training techniques that created the Irondale Ensemble Project. Just as the professional company grew out of the interests and talents of the original members, the Young Company develops work in the same way. Young Company members will create and perform two productions over the course of the school year, travel to see other professional shows, and intern with a professional theatre company.

Young Company members gain hands on experience and learn what it takes to run a professional theatre by ushering visiting and in-house productions, assisting in youth classes, distributing marketing materials, stuffing programs, and working alongside Irondale’s professional Ensemble on our Equity productions. We are truly grateful for their commitment and are proud to call each and every young person an Irondale family member. The Young Company is generously supported by New York State Council on the Arts, Sonia Staff Foundation, Department of Cultural Affairs, City of New York, and our generous individual donors, providing NYC teens complimentary tuition.

Young Company runs October, 2019 – June 2020

Most sessions meet 11:00AM-2:00PM at Irondale.
