NexGen Youth Theatre provides two types of performance opportunities, Spring and Fall MainStage Productions, as well as Summer Intensive Studio Programs.


NexGen Youth Theatre's two yearly MainStage productions are performed in Off-Broadway Theatres around New York City. The students receive technique training through preparation for a full musical, and work with professional teaching artists, directors, choreographers, technicians, and designers throughout the process. They also rehearse in professional studio spaces, and receive feedback from industry professionals at the culmination. Our MainStage Productions are fully produced shows with costumes, set, lighting and sound.

Starting Summer 2022

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Summer Intensive has been postponed until summer 2022.

The Summer Intensive is a two week, full day program that rehearses a musical in a professional intimate studio theater in just two weeks. The students get a taste for the fast paced rehearsal process of a working actor. There are shows for two age groups (3rd - 8th) and (9th - 12th). With a minimal amount of sets and props, the focus is on performer growth and technique during the process. Each student will receive a show-themed t-shirt as their costume for two open final performances for friends and family on the last day.
