Participants only need to attend one day. Parents should plan on staying for a brief parent meeting at the beginning of the audition workshop.
YSKP is dedicated to a non-traditional, fun audition process. Our auditions take place as a group workshop and include a warm-up, exercises, and theater games. Participants are given a chance to sing a song and share a story.
Please prepare a short story based on the moon, a myth, or scientific discovery and a chorus or verse of a song. It’s important to bring any conflicts to rehearsal.
Our 2018 musical will be announced March 3, 2018. Performances are June 28-July 8, 2018, location TBD. Rehearsals will begin May 7th.
Full cast participant fee $250
Small chorus participant fee $100
Scholarships are available, no interested kid is ever turned away due to inability to pay.
2018 marks YSKP’s twenty-fourth summer producing original musical theatre for youth. Founded in 1995 by John Fleming, the company has committed itself to providing unique performing opportunities for area kids. Actors in YSKP’s shows have an opportunity to create a role. They learn skills related to singing, dancing, character building, and mime. Participants also exercise their ability to work collaboratively, take responsibility, and think on their feet. They increase their confidence and creativity.
