For those of you who don't know, the wonderful creators of this community, Spencer Stumpf and Mijo Buiskool Price are getting married. Due to this wonderful event we will be unable to produce a summer production, but we will be coordinating workshops.
There will be no production this summer.
Our Mission Statement
Clear Space Youth Theatre facilitates the creative development of local, theatrically inclined youth (18-30). It is intended to expand the potential of ambitious directors, designers, actors, playwrights and managers, allowing them the opportunity to foster their own individual artistic style. Working in conjunction with already well-established local theatre companies, we endeavour to revitalize the community with new ideas, goals and styles in order to perpetuate local theatrical culture.
Clear Space Youth Theatre is committed to teaching the efficiency, trust, and responsibility of a professional company while honoring its status as a volunteer-run organization. We want to teach that theatre is truly at its most effective when the company is made up of many parts doing different jobs to create one unified theatrical experience for ourselves, and our audiences.
We aim to enrich the local arts scene of Whatcom County by drawing students of theatre out of their institutions, into the wider community where they can test what they are learning in an educational, process-oriented experience, while seeing a product (or show) through to its completion. We hope to one day see the legitimate stage as a profitable, accessible, socially challenging, and inspiring staple of entertainment in our community.
