Founded in 1972, Place des Arts is a not-for-profit arts education centre with a mission to inspire the artist in everyone. Located in the historic Maillardville neighbourhood of Coquitlam, we offer quality instruction for all ages and skill levels in the visual, literary and performing arts.
The 2024 Summer Theatre Troupe (STT) production will centre around a family-friendly published script. The program will provide enriched learning for youth allowing them to engage with their community and learn new concepts and techniques which they can take forward into this production and beyond.
Place des Arts’ Summer Theatre Troupe (STT) provides local youth, between ages 15-18, meaningful mentorship and performance opportunities, while also serving the community free, family-friendly, live theatre. 2024 will mark the 11th season of the Summer Theatre Troupe, which has grown into an established platform for aspiring young performers and artists to connect with their peers, learn from professionals in the field and gain valuable performance experience in a supported, professional environment.
Reporting to the Program and Events Coordinator and working with the Director and Production Stage Manager, Summer Theatre Troupe Youth Actors will attend rehearsals, learn roles as assigned and assist with technical/production elements of the production. Actors will perform in approximately 12 outdoor shows (tentatively set between July 24 and August 2 on the Place des Arts site and/or other offsite locations) and will help to strike the show each night.
