 Theater for young adults
Innovation Theatre Works has announced The Young Artists Theatre Conservatory (YATC) will hold a free workshop on Jan. 14 from 10 a.m. to noon.
YATC is the next step in professional theatrical training for the young adults (ages 15-21) of Central Oregon. Through a comprehensive trimester program YATC will provide a complete education in the theater arts punctuated with a progressive series of student productions.
The next two trimesters will take place January through June, beginning Jan. 21. YATC employs  experienced and knowledgeable theatrical professionals  to share their real-world skills with the  young people of the region. There are a few spots remaining for the next two trimesters.
Each trimester will culminate with a production that will be stepped up in production value from minimal to full over the course of the year. However, the real emphasis will be on overall learning, with the productions serving only as demonstrations and evaluations of progress.
Tuition will be $180 per trimester and can be paid all at once or broken into three payments of $60 each. Students are also welcome to pay weekly ($15/week). Acceptance into YATC will include a commitment to a full trimester.
 Innovation Theatre Works is located at 1155 S.W. Division Street in Bend.
