Young Artist Training Program
Talented youth and young professionals, working together to reach their performance goals.Under the direction of Stephanie Riggs, Educational Director, YATP is our world class musical theatre training program. Established in 1993 in Flower Mound, YATP is now in it's 23rd year and has trained students with careers on both stage and screen, that span across the United States and Europe, from London to Los Angeles, New York to Chicago, and right here at home in Big D.
YATP students make a big impact wherever they go. The small, conservatory style program admits the best and the brightest students by auditions each year, most of whom train with the program for more than five years until graduation, when they move on to both professional careers and outstanding university programs. Many of our alumni, that are working professionals today, credit YATP with giving them the strong foundations for the work they do today.
