Young Performers are Rising Stars

Young Performers2The Ensemble Theatre is preparing for its summer Young Performers Program, a summer training program for youth ages 6-17. Two, four week sessions are held where the youth learn acting skills, music, dance, technical aspect of theatre production, and more. This self-esteem building program culminates in the youth presenting a professional production of their own in front of their family and other patrons. Sessions will be held June 2-28, 2014 and June 30 – July 26, 2014. For More Info Contact Teresa White, twhite@ensemblehouston.comYoung Performers
Many alumni from the program have gone on to have success in college and in their professional careers extending beyond the arts. Most recently, Joshua Levi, a former program participant was seen as a finalist on the television show X Factor. Other Ensemble Theatre young performers Raiya Goodman, John Hall, Tyne Dickson and Tah’ Janae Merchant were recently accepted into the (HSPVA) High School for Performing and Visual Arts.

Each year The Ensemble Theatre recognizes one of its former Young Performers Program participants as its Rising Star award recipient along with celebrities, corporations, and local community members for their contributions to the arts and support of The Ensemble Theatre in becoming one of Houston’s premiere historical cultural institutions. This year’s gala will be held Saturday, August 16, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency Downtown – Houston.
