ACT II Theatre Program

Rebound is a caring partner in the successful development of youth.

About the program

ACT II provides supportive services for youth through various performing, visual, expressive, and musical arts-based programming. It provides youth with the opportunity to develop an increased sense of self-worth and belonging through a youth-engaged expressive arts model.

ACT II is of no cost and incorporates skill building using Rebound’s child & youth professionals, in conjunction with trained adult allies from the arts community. ACT II succeeds in helping youth develop emotional and social strengths, with a focus on youth facing barriers, including those who identify as 2SLGBTQ+, BIPOC, and those facing mental health challenges.

ACT II hold rehearsals in June, July, August, and September, held three times a week in the summer before show week. It is open to youth aged 8-18 for the cast and open for ages 8-24 for production crew roles. Whether a youth would like work backstage or perform in front of a crowd, there a place for them in Act II.

2023 Production Details:

Disney’s Finding Nemo JR. is a musical adaptation of the beloved Pixar movie. Marlin, an anxious and over-protective clownfish, lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his kid Nemo, who longs to explore the world beyond their anemone home. But when Nemo is captured and taken to Sydney, Marlin faces his fears and sets off on an epic adventure across the ocean. With the help of lovable characters such as optimistic Dory, laid-back sea turtle Crush, and the supportive Tank Gang, Marlin and Nemo both overcome challenges on their journey to find each other and themselves.
