Citykids Rep

If all the Doors are Shut climb out the window

At CityKids Repertory Company (Rep), we are a vibrant community of young creatives united by our passion for performing arts and our dedication to creating positive change. Our mission is to seamlessly integrate performing arts training with leadership development strategies, providing a platform for young minds to not only become outstanding performers but impactful voices for societal transformation.

Core Principles

Inclusive Training: We believe in the power of inclusivity. Through a meticulous audition process, Rep members are chosen to receive free training in diverse art disciplines, including music, drama, dance, creative writing, and multimedia.

  1. Holistic Development: Our commitment extends beyond creating great performers; we aim to nurture individuals who leave a lasting positive impression. Rep members undergo technical production training alongside their artistic development.

  2. Creative Empowerment: Rep members embark on a journey of self-expression, transforming their ideas into original works addressing crucial topics such as self-esteem, parent-youth relationships, violence, and discrimination. We empower our youth to be catalysts for change through poetry, drama, music, song, films, and dance.

  3. Skill-Building and Rehearsals: Weekly skill-training and rehearsals prepare Rep members for live performances in diverse venues, particularly for underserved groups throughout the city. Additionally, members actively contribute to the production of music videos, recordings, and arts-skills workshops, fostering a well-rounded artistic experience.

  4. Engagement and Reflection: Repertory members not only share their creations through live performances but engage in post-show conversations, creating a dialogue that extends beyond the stage. Depending on the nature of the work and the youth’s desires, pieces may be shared on various media outlets to reach wider audiences.
