T3 Triple Threat Youth Mentors (T3). Whether a casual enthusiast or aspiring professional all are welcome and encouraged to join T3 Teaching Artist as we celebrate and pay homage to our favorite productions from the Great Bright Way. This summer we’re seeking to bring together a diverse ensemble of talented young people. Youth from all backgrounds are encouraged to audition.
OPERATING SAFELY & STAYING HEALTHY DURING COVID:
In response to COVID-19 and state-wide conditions, T3 youth mentors has moved its programs outside. In time “The Show Will Go On”, but for now we’ll continue to train & educate our students in the safest and healthiest of environments.
8 through 18-year-olds. A good attitude and willingness to learn is more important than experience. We aim to keep students in three age groups:
There may also some production spots for those interested in learning about this side of the show process. (directing, stage managing, technical theatre, etc.)
“The Best of Broadway JR” is a musical theatre workshop and production. Exploring Pop Rock musical styling students will train with a “Triple Threat” mindset. A “Triple Threat” is an industry label for someone that can sing, dance, and act.
June 4, through August 22. Classes will be held in- person and will take place on Monday, Wednesday & Friday between 4:30 to 7:00 PM.
We’re aiming for our last day of class/ our showcase(s) to be on or around August 18, 2021. However due to the fact we will be working outside and at mercy of the elements we’d like everyone to be open and flexible regarding these matters. In person classes scheduled on a rainy or wet days will be held on-line.

Dancing Through Life & COVID-19
While the pandemic has been especially hard on the live theatre and arts communities, T3 continues to work for equity, diversity, and inclusivity. Our individual needs-based scholarships are intended to include those that would otherwise go without access to performing arts training. Unfortunately, due to the times, we are without the resources to provide our traditional scholarship program this summer. The GOOD NEWS is we are introducing a new student-parent Work/Study Program (WSP) that can waive up to half of a student’s tuition.
How The T3 WSP Works:
Participants will need to show proof of income and/or enrollment in a benefits program. Once approved, both students and parents/guardians will take part in the WSP, working directly with T3 to sustain our program with your fundraising, administrative, customer service, carpentry, and technical skills.
PARENTS: will participate in the WSP Committee to strategize ways to raise the funds needed to balance our administrative, production, and scholarship program costs. One parent will be chosen to be the lead of this committee.
STUDENTS: will give 12 hours in administrative, customer service, carpentry, and/or technical work in support of the current production.
How to Apply:
Complete the WSP Online Application HERE before June 8, 2021. Once approved, both the awarded student and one parent/guardian will be required to attend a welcome WSP Committee Meeting (date TBD) where you will receive more details about the program and your specific roles and expectations. Details about this meeting will arrive with your approval email.
