OUTDOOR AMPHITHEATRE PROGRAMMING
The Confederation Centre Young Company, in partnership with the TD Ready Commitment, is one of our country’s leading performance-based training programs. With a strong focus on all three performance disciplines, 12 young artists between 18-30 years of age from across Canada gather to share their lived experiences and present stories that define us as Canadians.
For more than 25 seasons, the troupe has come from across Canada each summer to receive training at the Centre covering all aspects of life in performance—from voice to dance to acting to group creation, all led by top theatre professionals. ‘YoCo’, as it is affectionately known, also performs an original musical production, created during the rehearsal process. A part of The Charlottetown Festival, this family-friendly production is performed, free of charge, six days a week, in the Confederation Centre outdoor amphitheatre.
