WINTER SESSION

High school sophomores through college seniors intersted in growing their performance skills in a dynamic environment are encouraged to audition for our winter musical. Past productions have included RENT, Spring Awakening and Carrie The Musical. Auditions are generally held in October/November with rehearsals continuing once or twice per week until the production in January.

Auditions are required and not all applicants will be cast. If cast in the production, actors will be required to raise funds through adverstising and sponsorships in lieu of a registration fee. If unable to raise the minimum amount, a registration fee will be charged. Participants in the winter program are not required to work internship hours. Those not cast in the show, but still intersted in being a part of the production, are encouraged to assist with other areas of the production (stage management, wardrobe, hair/makeup, etc).
