Born out of a need for new voices in theatre, Rebel Verses Youth Arts Festival seeks to nurture creativity in the next generation. This two-week festival brings together student ensembles from all five boroughs of New York City and Pennsylvania.  Students develop their artistic skills in workshops led by working artists by day, and by night, perform their own original works. Each evening culminates in a collaborative piece devised by all ensembles involved.

Now in its 13th year of empowering students’ voices through the performing arts, Developing Artists, and Rebel Verses Youth Arts Festival finds not only a new home, but a partner in presenting and expanding their reach with the Vineyard Theatre. Developing Artists, launched in 1999, led by Artistic Director Jill DeArmon and Executive Director Jinn S. Kim, began their relationship with Vineyard during the 2015-2016 season when DeArmon and Kim were brought on as Education Directors for Vineyard’s Arts-in-Education program.
