***Take The Stage!***


This Cole Porter showstopper is a testament to his giddy plots and beloved romantic songs. He is the Shakespeare of musicals... the plot of Anything Goes is reminiscent of the comedies of Shakespeare:  lovers in disguise, secret plans that comically fail, and like a good Shakespearean comedy, everyone gets married at the end. All of this is staged on a luxury liner, the S.S. American, playing off the mystique and romance of a luxury cruise.

The music is outstanding!  Songs include: You're the Top, It's Delovely,  Heaven Hop,  Friendship, I Get a Kick Out of You, Anything Goes, Let's Misbehave, Blow Gabriel Blow, Night and Day, and Take Me Back To Manhattan.

Exciting news for all YPTW Students:

***  Our New YPTW Certificate Program!  ***

We are instituting a new tiered certificate program for our students. The goal is to guide and       encourage our young actors to take a broad range of classes and become complete theatre people.

You will be recognized for your work by earning Bronze, Silver and Gold Certificates. Once you have reached one of these levels, you will be honored at our year end cabaret. Your achievements will be recognized and celebrated in other ways, too. Make sure you receive your Student Handbook when you sign up for classes this Fall!


Welcome to YPTW's Webstage!!

Young People's Theate Workshop welcomes you to our little stage on the web. As we celebrate our 34th year of instruction in the dramatic arts, we thought you might want to learn alittle more about who we are. Here you will find information on our course offerings, upcoming shows and theatre camps. You will also find photos, alumni news and links to some of our favorite theatrical websites.

      Just Who Is YPTW Anyway???       

YPTW’s mission statement:

          Since opening its doors in 1978, Young People’s Theatre Workshop has provided high quality education in the theatre arts. Our staff of professional educators is dedicated to sharing their theatrical expertise in a safe, fun-filled yet challenging environment. Through our process centered approach, we teach the value of hard work, dedication, cooperation and respect. Our coursework, camps, workshops and full-scale theatrical productions provide our students with the experiences necessary to take the stage in theatre and in life.

          Each Saturday, over 200 students enjoy classes at Young People's Theatre Workshop! The numbers have grown in the past thirty years. However, the goals of YPTW remain very much the same.YPTW offers a wide variety of classes including Mastering Monologues, Shakespearean Scenes, Broadway Repertoire, Musical Comedy, Broadway Dance, Tap Dance, Stage Make-up and Hair Design and Introduction to Theatre. Another tradition that has continued throughout our long history is the annual spring musical production on the main stage at the Players Club of Swarthmore. Every June audiences enjoy a full-scale production with over 80 -100 students, a live orchestra and magnificent sets and costumes.

          YPTW classes are still held at The Players Club of Swarthmore but the Workshop's offerings now include an overnight camp at Eastern College in June, a summer day camp at Strath Haven Middle School and  a small musical workshop for students in grades 3-7 during the months of November and December.
