Next Actors: Summer Theatre for Teens


Every summer, Next Act sponsors a six-week playwriting and performance program free-of-charge to a select group of Milwaukee area teenagers of diverse cultural, ethnic, racial and economic backgrounds. With the guidance of professional teaching artists, students create their very own original theatre piece, rehearse it, and then tour the finished production.


2014 Next Actors

Next Actors will take place June 16 through July 26, 2014. The first three weeks consist of improvisation exercises, brainstorming sessions, idea development, movement and music workshops. Weeks four and five are spent writing and rehearsing, and during week six, Next Actors will tour their production to area schools, senior centers and community organizations, culminating with a final benefit performance on Saturday, July 26, 2014.


Auditions will be held at Next Act Theatre on Saturday, May 17, and Sunday, May 18, from 9 am to 3 pm. Please contact Becky at 414-278-7780 to sign up for an audition time.
