Young Actors Theatre was established in 1976 as a place to empower youth for life. We have been teaching, creating, producing, innovating, and playing in Downtown Indianapolis since then, and we are here to stay!
We serve 37,000 individuals and have a 90% return enrollment rate.
We produce innovative, original work by youth and for youth, but we are more than a theatre, and our young actors are more than students. Young Actors Theatre students are Model Citizens in the Capital City. We need a way to train students to be life-long learners, to be endlessly curious, to take matters into their own hands and to remind them that learning is the key to unlocking their future. We need a place to concentrate solely on self-empowerment. We have created that at Young Actors Theatre, and we call it Self-Empowerment Theatre.
