AUDITION – YOUTH & TEENS

Home CONTACT AUDITION – YOUTH & TEENS

Information on auditions for upcoming MainStage Shows.  Note: Youth Company & Teen Ensemble programs do not require a pre-enrollment audition like the MainStage does.

UPCOMING AUDITIONS – YOUTH & TEENS

Auditions for Youth & Teen roles in our upcoming MainStage (professional) productions of Andrew Lippa’s A Little Princess and Hairspray will be held on an ongoing basis.   Students selected for the Youth and Teen roles will be trained alongside some of Chicago’s most exciting professional actors, and will perform in professional presentations of the show for audiences in our new theatre.  Youth & Teen performers will be enrolled in a tuition-based program which is a rehearsal-class hybrid.

STUDENTS INTERESTED IN BEING CONSIDERED FOR TEEN or YOUTH ENSEMBLE SPOTS IN “A LITTLE PRINCESS” or “HAIRSPRAY” SHOULD EMAIL US AT:  education@windycityperforms.org

If you are a current or past WCMT student, or have similar experience, we may not require you to audition before approving your enrollment.
