WHO WE ARE
The Young Actors Guild of the Capital Region is dedicated to creating high-quality theater for young artists. YAG is committed to improving the quality of life for children and families in our community by serving approximately 250 young people and families annually in six key program areas each year. We have workshops in stage productions, new play development, theatre arts training, vacation camps; and high school apprentice/college intern programs.
The mission of the Young Actors Guild is to encourage a child’s self-discovery, enhance their self-expression, stimulate their imagination and develop strong character. This is achieved by incorporating the highest ethical, moral, technical and artistic standards into a supportive community-based environment.
Young Actors Guild provides professional expectations, resources, and mentors that lead young people through the exploration of multiple theatrical disciplines. This process takes place in a nurturing, respectful atmosphere where our students, their families and the community can realize the impact and lifetime character building learned in the theater process.
