The Young People's Summer Workshop
The Young People's Summer Workshop (YPSW) has been an Island Players production since 1975. Each year this show attracts anywhere from 60 to 80 children, ages 8 and up. The YPSW introduces our local children to a wonderful theater experience, teaching them various aspects of the theater. Not only do the children have a great deal of fun, and meet other local children to share the theater experience with, but they learn about stage etiquette and how to be a responsible team participant. Many of our children, who started their stage experience with the YPSW, have pursued their love of theater through high school and community drama clubs; and many have gone on to college for Theater/Drama degrees and are now working at various theaters nationwide.
