Arts and Humanities
The Arts and Humanities activities at the West County Family YMCA and its 370 seat theatre is the center of arts for the whole family in West County. Community theatre performances and a variety of classes and workshops are offered throughout the year.
During the summer months, the theatre buzzes with day camps at the Summer Arts Academy. Children ages 5-15 have unique opportunities in theater, dance, visual arts, circus and other performing arts.
The West County Family YMCA operates five theatre companies that perform throughout the year:
Y-REP TEENS a company for high school students that provides an opportunity to hone their craft outside of school.
Y-REP TWEENS a company specifically geared toward middle-schoolers.
Y-REP KIDS a company for children ages 8-14 that presents plays for all ages.
Y-REP SINGERS New for the 2012-2013 season is a musical review company featuring youth of all ages.
SHOW’S OVER an improv team of middle school and high school students.
We also present a variety of Special Engagements in partnership with local arts organizations.
