Some roles may be double-cast, which would mean some students would have both a ‘lead role’ track and an ensemble track. Stay tuned for specific information about which performances will include your child’s lead role track if applicable.
INSTRUCTORS: Jerry R. Soria-Foust, WCP’s founding Artistic Director, will be returning to directing our Youth Company this Fall!
PREREQUISITE & CASTING INFO: No audition is necessary. We do “try-on”-style casting, with an assessment of acting, singing & dancing skills on the first day. We assign roles to our students based on their goals and our assessment of how best to challenge them and continue to develop their skills. One of our philosophical pillars is “ensemble” – we try to give every child as much stage time as possible, and make strong use of students in secondary or chorus roles throughout the show.
CLASS SIZE: Youth Company enrollment is limited to 32 students. This class almost always fills, so enroll early to ensure your place. In our larger programs, some or all roles are double-cast; however, usually all students perform in all of the shows. We do reserve the right to change the number of performances based on the final enrollment and casting.
***NOTE: We also encourage youth performers to consider an auditioned spot in our Fall/Holiday Mainstage show, Pasek & Paul’s adaptation of A CHRISTMAS STORY. For more information about ACS, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
