Youtheatre: Class Acts

The Youtheatre: Class Acts series was created in 1992 to introduce North Country students to the magic of live theater as they watch historical and literary characters come to life, thus establishing a love of reading. A national study conducted by the National Endowment of the Arts states, "The arts not only have an academic impact on youth, but also a positive correlation to all achievement." The report concludes, "Socially and economically disadvantaged children who have high levels of arts engagement show more positive outcomes in a variety of areas than their low-arts engaged peers...These outcomes extend to school grades, test scores, honor society membership, high school graduation, college enrollment & success, volunteering, and participation in school or local politics."

During the 2019-20 Season despite having to cancel 11 performances, 6,770 students and their teachers from 49 schools from St. Lawrence, Jefferson, and Franklin Counties attended 9 Youtheatre performances.
