For the twenty-first summer in a row, there is an inordinately creative group of young people writing original dramatic works in our fair city. Over the years, the Northfield Arts Guild’s Young People’s Theater Workshop has grown into a Northfield tradition.
This Workshop, often referred to as YPTW, offers classes in theater arts from acting to dance and movement to improvisation, all taught by talented and committed theater and education professionals. On top of the education offered to the participants of the Workshop, the young people write original plays, rehearse them, and perform them for the general public! These plays are sometimes silly, sometimes thought-provoking, and sometimes important social commentary. What the plays always include are the thoughts and creativity of the young people involved.
The performances of the July session of YPTW will be held at the Northfield Arts Guild Theater on August 3 and 4 at 5:30pm and on August 5th at 10:00am. Tickets are $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students and will be available at the door. For more information about YPTW or any of the classes available at the Northfield Arts Guild, please see the Arts Guild website at www.northfieldartsguild.org, or call the Arts Guild office at 507-645-8877.
