For the Love of Theater

Performers from Jennersville PAC Theater Production

The lights, the dazzle, the faraway places – there is so much to love about theater. From front of house to back of house and everything in between, the YMCA provides opportunities for you to fulfill your lifelong dream – or to enable someone else’s. Below are the ways you can get involved in our Theater programs whether you love the spotlight or prefer to be behind it.

In the Spotlight

  1. Try a Theater Class – Ages 3-9
    Starting in March, all of our branches will offer theater classes so that children ages 3-9 can try their hand at acting. Theater classes meet weekly for just one month to encourage children to try something new. Registration is open for classes in March, April and May.
  2. Register for Summer Theater Camp – Ages 4-15
    Throughout the summer, children can join a week-long theater camp at Camp Jennersville in West Grove or at Camp UMLY in Berwyn. At the end of each week, campers will perform for caregivers in a performance that you don’t want to miss! Themes include fairytales, Annie Jr., and a few Disney favorites. Registration is now open!
  3. Join a Theater Production - Ages 5-18
    Our Performing Arts Companies (PACs), Jennersville PAC and UMLY PAC offer several full-scale productions throughout the year for a range of ages. Current productions include:
