Open House

Open house events are scheduled four times per year in conjunction with major performances in Southern California. This provides a unique opportunity to visit the campus and then experience a workshop or see a performance by The Young Americans!

If the open house dates do not fit into your schedule, you can choose from one of our monthly campus tour dates below.

Campus tours provide an opportunity to become familiar with the campus, take a master class with artistic staff and faculty, and meet staff, faculty, and students. Whether you are considering auditioning or deciding if YACPA is the place for you an Open House is a great way to see firsthand the YACPA experience.
