We believe that theater provides a platform for teens to learn, find their voice, create, and be heard.

A.R.T. develops programs like Proclamation for teens to connect to their creativity, power, and each other through mentorship, theater skill-building, and self-expression.

Please email education@amrep.org to receive information on upcoming semesters.

A.R.T. Education Programs such as A.R.T. Kids Company, April Break programs, as well as workshops and tours for student groups are suspended until further notice. 

Like many of you, we are staying informed about the events surrounding the global outbreak of the coronavirus. The health and safety of our staff, artists, and audiences is of utmost importance. We have decided to suspend all Education programs until further notice. A.R.T. staff will be in touch directly with parents and school group leaders regarding these changes.

A.R.T. Young Company

The brand new next step for our Kids Company program for students ages 11 to 13!

This class meets on Saturday mornings at the Loeb Drama Center, 64 Brattle Street, March 16 – May 16. There will be no class on April 25 and the final class on May 16 will take place at 4 – 6PM.

Spring Break Programs

A.R.T. now offers a combined acting and writing program during April break for teens and pre-teens, ages 11 to 15!

Acting for Teens introduces techniques for different types of performance, including scenes, monologues, script analysis, voice acting, and more. Students will work with A.R.T. teaching artists to build the essentials of the actor’s toolbox: voice, body, mind, and imagination.

Scriptwriting for Teens dives in to the process of structuring a story and crafting a playable script. Teens will write a script around a theme, build vocal performance skills through activities, and learn story crafting.

Both of these sessions meet daily for one week at the Loeb Drama Center, 64 Brattle Street, during the public school April vacation.

Proclamation

What is Proclamation?

Proclamation is, basically, a group of high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors who get together after school at the theater; talk about the world with Harvard professors and A.R.T. artists; invent a mind-exploding club theater show; bask in the glory of their adoring fans; give each other the most massive, epic hugs (the squeeze-the-life-out-of-you kind); and promise they’ll never let go of this feeling: that you made something important and real, together.

That’s Proclamation. (Basically).

It’s eight weeks, three days a week, three and a half hours a day. We don’t audition for Proclamation, just informal one-on-one interviews. Whether you get invited to join the ensemble or not, we give everyone who applies the same fair shot.

Each year, Proclamation starts with a flashpoint: a current social or political event; book, essay or article; recent controversy; or work of art that ignites our investigation—which ultimately develops into an original devised theater piece written and performed by the ensemble.

We treat everyone in Proclamation like a professional. This means everyone gets paid for their work, writing, and performing at the A.R.T.

P.S.: No theater experience required.

Proclamation 7 (Fall 2019)

Proclamation runs for eight weeks September – November. Rehearsal will be on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 4 – 7:30PM.

Two final performances will take place at OBERON on November 2 & 3.

Applications for Proclamation 7 are now closed.
Applications for Fall 2020 will open in Summer 2020.
