Theater arts programs provide leadership and life experiences that contribute to the development of an emotionally, physically and socially healthy society. Our Theater for Young Performers (TYP) series immerse youth in the creative process and inspire future innovators, entrepreneurs, creators, humanitarians and artists.

Youth ages 8-18 are invited to audition 3-4 times a year for TYP productions.  Participants are responsible for all aspects of the production from fundraising, set building, even some directing. The experience culminates with a minimum of three performances of a show presented to the community.

Our performance programs rely on support from local businesses and the generosity of individual donors. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support our next production. You can donate online via our Square Store or send a check to TVCT: PO Box 9144 Boise, ID 83707.

For “Willy Wonka, Jr.” auditions, prepare the required song, “I’ve Got A Golden Ticket” measures 1 to 35. You will be asked to sing in small groups and, if you want to be considered for a role with a solo, you must sing the same song solo. Additional audition activities may include learning some choreography, theater games, team building work and cold readings from the script. Resources to help you prepare are linked below.
