The Northlight Youth Council, or NLYC, is a brand new opportunity for passionate North Shore and Chicago teens to help build the next generation of theatre makers.

NLYC engages young adults in a variety of student-driven opportunities and allows them an up-close, inside look into the world of stage production. This program allows for members to attend Northlight performances, performances at other theatres, analyze and discuss the plays they see, do community service work, and plan and throw NLYC’s Spotlight events around each season production.
