The mission of the ACP Youth Wing is to provide the broadest range of theatrical experience and education we can to the greatest number of young people we can while maintaing the highest level of quality we can in a safe and welcoming haven. Click below for more information about our program!
The first ACP Youth Wing meeting of the year will be held on Saturday, August 19th. Youth Wing meetings will now be held on the third Saturday of every month. These free meetings are held from August - May at the Aiken Community Playhouse on Newberry St. in downtown Aiken. Grades 4 - 7 meet from 11:30 - 1:00 and grades 8-12 meet from 1:00 - 3:00. Classes are designed to teach basic theatre stage skills, such as Stage Movement, Finding Your Character, Improvisation and Script Analysis in an age-appropriate and engaging manner. We want to learn the theatre arts, but we also want our members to have fun and form friendships with other like-minded students from throughout our community.
In 2011, we established the Immersion Fund, supported by the Broadway & Beyond Gala. With the monies raised, we are able to take a select group of students to intensive regional workshops, such as Broadway Student Summit in NYC, Camp Broadway in Atlanta, and the Southeastern Theatre Conference. ACP also offers its own in-depth workshops through the ACP Academy which offers various short term classes for a fee. The opportunities are wide and varied!

The world of The Giver is a utopia. The people are assigned their roles in society, and men and women are assigned to each other. When children turn 12, they are assigned their roles in society. When Jonas turns 12, he is assigned the special role of Receiver of Memories. He goes to work with the Giver, who keeps the memories of the world as it used to exist. Together, Jonas and the Giver come up with a plan that will change their world forever.

Sisters Elinor and Marianne are captivated by two very different men. Elinor is charmed by the quiet, bumbling goodness of Edward, while Marianne is swept off of her feet by the dashing and mysterious Willoughby. But when Willoughby’s scandalous past and Edward’s secret fiancee come to light, the sisters are forced to rely upon themselves and one another to weather their heartache. When sense and sensibility meet, love can’t be far behind.
