Thanks to the leadership and commitment of the Americans in Alsace Board of Directors, a theater group was established in Strasbourg in 2013. The first production, Annie Jr, featured a cast of 27 young people from local middle and high schools. Its enthusiastic reception from both parents and the wider Strasbourg community affirmed our mission: to involve English-speaking young people in the rich tradition of American theater through productions and workshops. The second production, Seussical Jr in October 2014, met with equal success. This cast included more than 30 students representing over 20 nationalities. Our 2015 production of Disney's Beauty and the Beast Jr featured 34 young actors and had 5 sold-out performances in November. In October 2016, YAT's produced FAME Jr. with a cast of 41 young actors and 6 sold-out performances.
