ABOUT:  Our Young Performers Company was created in the fall of 2015 following our premiere production, The Sound of Music . Our most dedicated young performers train throughout the year and can be seen performing at various community events annually.  You may have seen our youth performers in recent Arkley productions such as, The Sound of Music (2015), The Secret Garden (2016), or ANNIE (2017). In addition to performing in Arkley summer productions, Main Stage YPC performers can often be seen performing on other stages throughout the community, and a few have gone to do voice-over and film work professionally.

Program Coordinator: Daphne Endert   Musical Director: Jessie Rawson
