Damron, Hunter, and other YASC staff will be on-site at The Gem Theatre at 18th and Vine every day this week from 2-4pm to process in-person sign-ups. If you complete the paperwork online, there’s no need to come in person until instruction officially begins Monday, June 7 at 1:45pm.
YASC is BRTKC’s biggest fundraiser of the year and tickets are now on sale for just $10! The live performance ofTHE WIZ!doubles as our annual Gala. We can’t wait to see you on Opening Night, Saturday, June 26 at either the 5:30pm performance or the 7:30pm performance.
YASC began in 2019 with our hit production SARAFINA! That year, 10 lucky students got their opportunity to shine onstage in front of an admiring crowd. But this year, we’re going bigger and we need your help! Sponsor the program with a tax-deductible donation via PayPal or check. You’ll receive program and onstage recognition, as well as a personalized thank you letter from the students.
Of course, this year will look a little different in light of the ongoing pandemic. Our top priority at BRTKC is keeping our artists, staff, and patrons safe and we need your help to do just that. We have implemented strict safety procedures which will be in use during all summer programming. To read all of our protocols, including mandatory hand-washing and mask-wearing, click below.
