Youth Theatre Company3

Since 2009, the Paramount Academy for the Arts has partnered with the City of Austin/Travis County to hire 20 high school students for five weeks. Students write, rehearse, and perform an original production on the historic Paramount stage as well as at other community organizations. The Youth Theatre Company captures students’ unique voices through activities such as personal journaling, dramatic improvisation, hip-hop dance workshops, and songwriting workshops. In the program, students reflect on their experiences and refine their own ideas before creating a fantastic production for the Austin community.

What is the “Power of Film?”

The 2014 Paramount Youth Theatre Company has been exploring this question for 5 weeks and are thrilled to share their work with you. Please join us in celebrating FILM and all the ways in can move us, make us laugh, make us cry, shock us, change us, and most importantly…bring us together!

Great for ages 10 and up.
