Upcoming Youth Auditions:​​


Season 2 Auditions dates coming soon!


Audition Workshops are 530-630 on the first day of auditions. Get comfortable with the Director and Assistant Director and the space before your audition for only $5!


Auditions are rolling, so come anytime during any audition session. And no need to prepare anything - auditions will consist of a cold read from the script. If you would like to read the script in advance, you are welcome to stop by the office to borrow one ($10 deposit in case of loss or damage required).


If cast or signing up for crew, youth participants must pay a fee to be involved. We offer scholarships if this is an issue for anyone, no questions asked!
