Cobb County's Curtain Call Youth Players
, a non-profit children's theater organization, was formed as a repertory group of young people dedicated to learning and performing live theater for family audiences. Curtain Call supports two groups of students. The first, The Players, is open by registration to students in 5th-12th grade who have an interest in learning about theater skills and production techniques. The second, The Troupe, is an audition-based high school group focused on developing displayed talent. During the school year CCYP produces four major productions at The Art Place
in Marietta. During the summer, CCYP also provides summer camps for children in 3rd-12th grade, as well as workshops offered on various theater skills. All camps are directed by a theater professional and an assistant, and are limited to 20 students. Everyone is encouraged to have fun, use their creativity, and gain confidence and stage presence. Each session ends with a performance on the last day. See the website for complete camp descriptions and on-line registration.
