YC Cabarets

High School Cabaret Ensemble & High School Musical Ensemble

If you’re an advanced student grades 9–12 with previous acting and singing experience, our ensemble program is a great opportunity to hone your artistry with focused and eager peers.

During weekly rehearsals from September to May, our Cabaret Ensemble and Musical Theater Ensemble develop a number of musical pieces in various styles—from works by well-known composers to standard musical theater selections—for performances in the Garret, the intimate fifth-floor performance space at A.C.T.'s Geary Theater.

Both ensembles present a series of weekend cabarets throughout the 9-month period, and members serve as musical ambassadors for the Young Conservatory, performing at events sponsored by A.C.T. and other organizations throughout the year.

Ensemble placement is determined by audition.*

Both ensembles meet weekly for a 2.5-hour rehearsal and require a 9-month commitment.

Fall & Spring Junior Cabaret Ensembles

If you’re a student grades 6–8 and have previously taken Junior Musical Theater or have significant experience in singing, our Junior Cabaret Ensemble class may be for you! Designed to deepen your singing skills and performance techniques, the session will culminate in a cabaret performance in the Garret, the intimate fifth-floor space at A.C.T.’s Geary Theater, for family and friends. 

Two sessions of the Junior Cabaret Ensemble are offered: the Fall Junior Cabaret Ensemble and the Spring Junior Cabaret Ensemble (April 13 & 14, 2018). There are separate auditions for each session, and each requires a 4-month commitment at a time.

Ensemble placement is determined by audition.*

Each ensemble meets weekly for a 2.5-hour rehearsal and requires a 4-month commitment.
