Clark Youth Theatre Receives National Recognition for Theatre Excellence

Clark Youth Theatre recently performed at the very first YouthFest during the AACT National Festival 2017 in Rochester, Minnesota. As one of only 3 youth companies from across the country invited to participate, Clark Youth Theatre is very proud to have been distinguished with this honor.

During the AACT National Festival, Clark Youth Theatre was awarded National Recognition for Theatre Excellence. Clark Youth Theatre now ranks among the finest youth theatre programs in the country, despite operating at a fraction of their competitors’ annual budgets. Two student actresses, Sophie Kimery and Lenora Martin, were individually recognized with Outstanding Achievement in Acting awards. Many of Clark Youth Theatre’s students also competed in the 1st Annual National Monologue Competition, and 4 of the 9 finalists were Clark Youth Theatre participants.

The 21 Clark Conservatory students who attended the festival were given the responsibility of raising the necessary travel funds; they willingly met the challenge, raising in excess of $21,000 in a 4-month span through letter-writing campaigns, raffles, special events and local performances. Clark Youth Theatre continues its commitment to creating future leaders through theatre.

Upcoming Events

The Crucible

Clark Youth Theatre presents "The Crucible" by Arthur Miller on February 2-3, 8-10 at 7:30 p.m. and February 4 & 11 at 2:00 p.m. at the Henthorne Performing Arts Center, 4825 S. Quaker. Tickets are $13 for adults and $10 for seniors and students. In the rigid theocracy of Salem, Massachusetts, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town. In a searing portrait of a community engulfed by panic – with ruthless prosecutors, and neighbors eager to testify against neighbors – The Crucible famously mirrors the anti-Communist hysteria that held the United States in its grip in the 1950’s.   




The Penguin Project: Disney's Aladdin KIDS

Clark Youth Theatre, in partnership with The Penguin Project, presents "Disney's Aladdin KIDS." Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, and Music adapted and arranged by Bryan Louiselle. Book by David Simpatico based on the 1992 Disney film Aladdin. Performances are February 16-17 at 7:30 p.m. and February 18 at 2:00 p.m. at Cascia Hall PAC, 2520 S Yorktown Ave, Tulsa, OK 74114. The Penguin Project® provides an opportunity for children with disabilities to develop creative skills related to the theatre arts.  They are joined on stage by peer mentors, who work with them side-by-side to guide them in rehearsals and performances.
