Footlight Players youth theater company was created as an outreach project of the Department of Theater and Dance in 2004 to provide young people in the Indiana area a program to discover their creativity through theater and musical theater.
The program offers a month-long youth theater day camp for children between the ages of 7 and 12, and a teen academy for those 12 and older for deeper study and training. We’re open to all youth with a desire to explore their creative talents.
Footlight is led by professional theater artists and assisted by advanced theater and dance students from all over the United States through our intern program. The program concludes with public performances by the entire Footlight Company.
