The 14th Street Y is the home of a state of the art black box theater and LABA, a non-religious, artistic platform for the study of Jewish texts. Also a home for innovative Off Broadway and experimental theater companies, the 14th Street Y is joining with some of our community partners to bring the downtown theater experience to New York teens.
For two weeks, teens will study with theater experts from a variety of fields and perspectives. Programming by Amas Musical Theatre, MCC Theater, and Red Fern Theatre Company will provide discipline-specific instruction in the areas of musical theater, acting, and theater for social justice. The 14th Street Y will teach various master classes, including training for high school and college theater program auditions. In an optional add-on week, the Amas Musical Theatre Intensive, students will develop the individual skills that together create the musical theater performer.
Teens will be able to customize their program with the choice of classes and focus. TTSC is the only place where young artists get a variety of expert instruction from award-winning theater companies, learn how to change the world through theater, and get expert training for auditions, in one place.
TTSC is designed for teens entering 6th through finishing 12th grades. Those who have completed grades 9-12 participate as Counselors-In-Training, which includes advanced acting classes, and leadership training.

Add on Week! July 21-25th
New this year! In addition to working with young people, Amas (which means "you love" in Latin) has cultivated new and diverse voices in American musical theatre, including over 60 professional productions.
In this week-long program, teens gain expertise in acting, dancing, and singing techniques, with emphasis on how these skills all come together to create a musical theatre performance. The week will conclude in a showcase of skills learned for family and friends.
