The Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center is proud to announce a new YAP After School Theater Program for Young Artists!

YAP’s Monday After School Theater Program cultivates imagination, encourages confidence and helps young artists find joy in self-expression. Through rehearsing and performing a Play students develop their own unique voice. Join us every Monday for 10 weeks at the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center where students will learn about and develop their part of this incredible Fall Theater Event.

YAP’s 2023 Fall After School Musical Play is Character Matters!

About the Play: Welcome to the weekly meeting of the Fairy Tale Advice Council! Led by Rapunzel, a handsome Prince, and a (recovering) Wicked Witch, the council offers help in character-building to famous folklore creatures. In this bestselling musical play, the Big Bad Wolf learns the Golden Rule, Cinderella gets help in managing her anger, and Jack and the Giant discover that their differences are cool. Filled with humor and fantastic songs, Character Matters is a wildly fun musical play that both entertains and educates all at once!

$350 for 10 weeks
