For over a decade Persephone Theatre has provided training at the highest calibre for a dedicated group of young people who are serious about pursuing a career in the theatre.
Once again this season we are proud to be offering the complete “actors” experience, starting with weekly performance training and culminating in a full on, weeklong production in the Persephone Theatre BackStage Stage.
The young company program provides students with fundamental acting training. Weekly classes begin in Fall of 2019 where they work on developing their skillset as a performer through improv, movement, voice work and partnered scene study. The new years kicks off with show specific auditions and leads into full rehearsals shortly after. This class serves as an excellent introduction to the world of professional theatre!
Completion of Generations I & II is highly recommended but not required.
May 5th – 9th 2020
(By audition only: to be held September 10th & 11th 2019)
Please note: Between April 27th – May 10th 2020 full time rehearsals begin. Participants may be required to miss school.
The audition is composed of two parts. First, students auditioning will be asked to work together in a small group; playing improv and movement games with one another. Then they will individually perform a monologue provided by Persephone Theatre.
