Northampton Youth Performance Festival

WHAT: Northampton Youth Performance Festival
WHEN: February 8 at 7pm, February 9 at 3pm, 2020
WHERE: Northampton Center for the Arts at 33 Hawley St Northampton, MA.

The Inaugural Youth Performance Festival (YPF) showcases the work of young artists (8-18 years old) in the disciplines of theater, dance, music, poetry, and video. Young artists have been paired with mentor artists in their field, and over the course of 6 weekends, the mentor artists helped guide the young artists in the creation of original work to be shared with the greater community. Co-sponsored by the Center for the Arts and Valley Performance Playground, the Festival will be held February 8th at 7pm and February 9th at 3pm at the Northampton Center for the Arts at 33 Hawley.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the Northampton Arts Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. The project is also supported in part by a grant from the Art Angels, and by the following sponsors:

A2Z Science and Learning Store, Art Always/High Five Books, DeMaio Orthodontics, Dostal Eyecare, Downtown Sounds, Greenfield Savings Bank, Laurie Davidson/Mucho Gusto Spanish Classes, Le Bon N’ton, Renew Pilates, Rigali and Wilder Orthodontics, Salon Herdis, Wohl Family Dentistry, and Workroom Design Studio.
