The Young Performers' Workshop is dedicated to the enrichment of young lives through the use of theatre arts and serves as a greenhouse for cultivating young professional performers. The program is one of the few that offers both formal professional training and production experience for young people. Career-minded individuals can prepare for the rigors of a professional career, yet students not aiming for a professional career benefit from the program with its emphasis on discipline, self-worth and developing communication skills.
The program is under the direction of Broadway, Film and Television veteran Michael Blevins. The Young Performers' Workshop is housed by the Centenary Stage Company a professional Equity theatre in residence at Centenary College, Hackettstown, New Jersey.
