Theatre de Jeunesse is a local non-profit theatre arts organization whose mission is to educate high school and early college aged young adults in all areas of the theatre arts, and to endeavor to foster a life-long appreciation of the arts through the production and performance of plays and/or musicals. The organization annually provides a pre-professional quality theatre arts educational and performance opportunity free of charge for Mid-Ohio Valley youth. This program addresses the underserved situation of many low-income youth by offering young people an opportunity to explore dreams and talents that might not otherwise be financially feasible. The organization does not own a facility, and staff members reside in several counties in Ohio and West Virginia. A post office box is rented for project correspondence and rehearsal space is leased in both Wood and Washington counties, so Mid-Ohio Valley young people from both sides of the river can participate and bear transportation costs equally.
The 2014 production will be the Tony Award winning musical classic "Camelot". See website for April audition dates.
