Youth Onstage New Orleans, LA (YONOLA)


The YONOLA Afterschool Program will be offered at no cost to families in our 7th ward community and is co-taught by two professional student artists. The program is structured to promote academic/interpersonal skill building and encourage artistic exploration.

Southern Rep Theatre identifies and trains Student Artist-Teachers, who receive ongoing professional development during their fellowship to ensure best practices for the program.
All YoNola participants will receive an afterschool snack, homework help and a structured multidisciplinary arts lesson at our theatre space on Bayou Road.

Working with Southern Rep Theatre Artist-Teachers over a number of weeks, students will experience lessons in music, poetry, visual art, dance, chorus, theatre – and much more! Arts lessons are often interdisciplinary, support learning across subjects and can be tailored to individual participants’ interests and goals.

YONOLA will take place every Monday and Wednesday from 3:45 pm – 5:30 pm.
