Young Company Auditions

First Stage Young Company, the Theater Academy’s award-winning training program for advanced high school actors is open to students who want to take their work to the next level. Accepted students will complete college and graduate-level training in Acting, Voice, Movement, and Shakespeare as well as electives ranging from Auditioning to Stage Combat to Dialects. In addition, the Young Company hosts master classes with guest artists from across the nation, produces a season of three plays, and facilitates special excursions to the Utah Shakespeare Festival and American Players Theater.

Class meets 9:30a-12:15p Saturdays throughout the school year with additional workshops and rehearsals scheduled separately.

Please prepare two contrasting memorized monologues, one classical (preferably Shakespeare), and one contemporary. There will also be an interview component to the audition. Plan to arrive a few minutes prior to your scheduled audition time to complete paperwork.

Young Company auditions for the 2019-20 School Year will be held in late August.
