My performer does not want to audition and/or have extra commitments outside of regular class time, can they still participate?
Yes! Our class program is open registration for all K-12 students. Class students perform in a showcase for family and friends on the last day of class so no additional rehearsals are required.
Do class students perform in shows?
No, class students do not perform in productions but will have a small showcase for family and friends on their last day of class. Students interested in performing in productions should audition for the Young Performers Company program.
My performer is unsure about auditioning, what does it entail?
Performers who would like to perform in our shows will need to audition for the Young Performers Company program. Auditions run similar to a sample class with music and choreography taught in groups. The most important things we look at in auditions are work ethic, focus, enthusiasm, and ability to take direction. We see both experienced performers and first timers at auditions, everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!
Should my student register for a class AND audition for the company?
No, not only do these programs often meet collectively at the same times, but each program has a different goal. Class students do not perform in productions, while Company members DO perform in productions and attend outside technical/dress rehearsals leading up to the show.
What does it mean to audition for the Young Performers Company and/or how are they cast in a show? Students who audition and are selected for the Young Performers Company program each fall and spring will be placed in one of our 5 Company groups depending on their age, skill set, scheduling preferences, and time of year (some groups hold open auditions in the fall only). Once company placements are set for the season we will spend the first few weeks of rehearsals learning material from the show and getting to know everyone. From there each company member will be cast in a role in the show. Casting is usually set 1-2 weeks into the season. Occasionally casting will be at the time of the initial group placement.
