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.
