Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA)

21 Chump Street  by Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights, Hamilton) is a new 14-minute musical based on a true story as reported in the series 'This American Life'. 21 Chump Street is a cautionary tale of a high school honors student who falls for a cute transfer girl. He goes to great lengths to oblige her request for marijuana in the hopes of winning her affection - only to find out that his crush is actually an undercover cop planted in the school to find drug dealers. 21 Chump Street discusses the ramifications of peer pressure, conformity and drug use in our schools with a message that will stay with teenagers long after they leave the theater.

 

 

 

 

In This is a Test, as the ticking clock reminds you, only 60 minutes remain to complete this oh-so-important predictor of your future. But you didn't get the review sheets, the teacher doesn't like you and your classmates are blatantly cheating. Time passes and the voices in your head remind you that though you are having trouble with the test, your personal life is far, far worse. Then you reach the essay question. The good news—it's an opinion essay. The bad news—it's in Chinese. And things aren't going to get better!

 

 

 

Moorpark College Theatre for Young Audiences Class Presents:
A show for children of all ages!

Spring of 2018 – Dates and Times to be Determined

Children’s Theatre returns to Moorpark College with our exciting NEW Theatre for Young Audiences class.  We look forward to bringing Theatre Arts to more young audience members on our campus and in our community!  Not only does this class aim to entertain our local community members young and old by touring a kid-friendly production to middle schools, preschools and senior living centers, it also teaches our college students important collaboration and communication concepts that they then use in any occupation.  We are excited to continue this tradition and reach out even more into the Ventura County community.
