Casting the Junior Company
REGISTRATION & CASTING PROCESS
While Senior Company shows are preceded by an audition, Junior Company shows are by registration. This includes the Spring Musical program for ages 11-15. Registration is on a first come first served basis limited only by the maximum number of parts available. Once registration is filled, interested students will be placed on a waiting list and will be notified as soon as any slots open up.
The first two or three days of every Junior Company rehearsal process consists of games, acting exercises, and group-building work. Our goal for students in those first few days is to build camaraderie and trust, develop performance skills, and have fun. Casting will be decided by directors, after attentive observation during those first rehearsals. Beyond acting, the director will consider willingness to try new things, the capacity to support one’s peers, and the emotional maturity to handle given roles. This approach offers a low-pressure and engaging way to match each student with a role that supports where they are in their growth and learning process.
Junior Company students do audition for the Holiday Musical in a workshop setting.
