The Young Americans are frequently invited back to cities and towns which have previously hosted the Performing Arts Experience. This captures the anticipation and joy of their return.

As a fully accredited performing arts college which has conducted outreach programs in schools and been featured in public performances in 32 countries, describing the impact that The Young Americans Performing Arts Experience has upon communities is a daunting task.

This video features comments from teachers and administrators as to the immediate and long-term impact of a visit by The Young Americans.

Hosting the Experience

Thank you for your interest in learning more about the Performing Arts Experience.  We realize that funding this program is an investment which must be considered in light of its ability to deliver unique and demonstrable benefits to your community in a very cost-conscious manner.  Hopefully, the above videos and any additional information that we can provide offer proof of lives changed as a result of the Performing Arts Experience and the life-long impact of personal growth and community enrichment which are the legacies of this program.

The fee for the three-day program is $18,500, which can be defrayed through admission income from the public performance as well as any local sponsorship that you wish to procure.  This assumes that students would be enrolled in the program as your guests.  If not, an additional source of revenue would be any fee that you wish to levy per registrant.

The Young Americans also requests local support in the following areas:

  • Host families who provide accommodation and some meals and transportation for the 38 cast members for the duration of the program.
  • A venue capable of accommodating The Young Americans and participating students for three days of learning and rehearsals.
  • A venue, possibly the same as utilized for the rehearsals, for ticketed presentation of the public performance.


Hand-in-hand with your commitment to the Performing Arts Experience is our pledge of conscientious and continuous support in every aspect of its planning and presentation.

We look forward to addressing your questions and to structuring this program to optimally address your goals.
