Theatre Atchison's Youth Programs encourage confidence and creativity through a variety of theatrical activities.


We offer production opportunities, workshops, and activities for grades 2nd-12th.

  • During the summer, Theatre Atchison hold a youth day camp "Summerstage" in which students learn about the ins-and-outs of theatre, and produce a full-length show.  In June, we hold 2 sessions for students entering grades 2-6, and in July we hold 2 sessions for students entering grades 7-12.  Registration for Summerstage opens annually on April 1.
  • During the school year the After School Players (ASP) produce two full-length shows and one traveling production.  In the fall and the spring semesters, students in grades 2-6 have the opportunity to be in a show, rehearsing after school hours.  Later in the spring, students can audition to be in the "After School Elite."  This group will produce a short show that travels to the three local elementary schools, giving them the chance to perform in front of all their peers.
  • Atchison Community Teen Thesbians (ACTT) is a group of students in grades 7-12 interested in learning more about theatre.  The produce a show annually with more challenging drama materials, and are given the opportunity to explore more areas of theatre.  Theatre Atchison hosts workshops and meetings for this group.
