Who we are

Teen Council

We are actors, directors, writers, designers, improvisers, and theatre-goers. Teen Council brings together a diverse group of teens (grades 9–12) from all over the Bay Area. We write, direct, and perform in our own productions, see plays at local theatres, explore different artistic departments through interactive workshops, and get a behind-the-scenes look at what happens at Berkeley Rep through interviews with professional artists.

Our mission is to cultivate the next generation of theatre audiences and professionals, preparing them to think critically and creatively about theatre arts through discussion-based programming.

Core Council

Berkeley Rep’s Core Council is a group of 10–15 student leaders from around the Bay Area who engage their peers through theatre arts. As the face of Berkeley Rep’s teen programming, Core Council are the leaders of the general Teen Council. Some Core Council responsibilities are planning Teen Nights, fundraising events, and workshops for their peers. At the beginning of every school year, a new group of students is accepted to be a part of this leadership group.
