High School Drama

Youth Productions

From the beginning, Heartwood's Youth productions have been an important part of its performing repertoire, developing talented and motivated youngsters.

Productions often include elements of:

  • movement
  • dance
  • choral and instrumental music
  • voice
  • mime
  • improvisation
  • traditional acting

All in a positive and challenging atmosphere.

Productions highlight themes of interest to young people and incorporate a variety of styles, genres and approaches. The essential element in the troupe will be a focus on production unity and ensemble.


Programs available to participants in the Regional Youth Ensemble also include theater arts summer programs and winter after school electives. These programs are open to all students in the Midcoast.
