Algonquin Youth Ensemble

This is the Algonquin's marquee arts education program within our Performing Arts Academy. Students are selected to participate through a highly-competitive audition process prior to the start of the semester. In addition to rehearsing for the main stage performance in which they are cast, AYE students are enrolled in a class that runs in conjunction with the rehearsal period, teaching theatre skills and concepts that are applied to the production.

As of the Spring 2017 semester, Algonquin Youth Ensemble is a tuition-free program thanks to our program sponsor, Broadway Ray.
