How often do you have programs in which children/youth can participate?
A full-scale youth production is held in February of each year; a workshop production in October; and several workshops are held throughout the year. Most often the summer production has children in it, however it is not classified as a “children’s production.”

In order to be eligible to audition, all young actors must have taken at least one of our workshops. Participation in a workshop automatically places the actor’s name on our mailing list and establishes the eligibility to audition.

What types of workshops are offered for children/youth?
Workshop materials vary from how to select a song for auditions, to mime, acting, stage combat, Shakespeare, etc. Technical workshops are being planned for the future.
