Youth Group 2017-18 Auditions

Whitby Courthouse Theatre is excited to continue to encourage community involvement, team building, and creative expression once again through its Youth Theatre Program this fall. Our program will be accepting 25 members to begin its weekly Saturday morning workshops on Saturday September 30th. From September to December our group focuses on educational workshops from improv, theatre history, vocal lessons, choreography, to production tasks, scene work, and film studies. The group will also be heading on a team building adventure together this fall, and will attend a professional theatre show in the spring.

The auditions in September are for entrance into the theatre program, there will be another set of auditions for our members accepted into the program to audition for parts in our spring show (TBA) in December. For our auditions for acceptance into our program we are looking for youth who are excited about creating something in the theatre community, who are looking to work as a team to build something together, and who love to have fun.

Audition Date & Time: Saturday Sept 23 – 9 am–4 pm

Audition Location: TBA (please check back here again for location)

Auditions will consist of 2 parts; a private portion where you will be asked to perform a song of your choice. Please prepare a song in your vocal range, and one that you enjoy singing, as well as a short monologue (no longer than 1 minute) to show us your acting skills. There will be a pianist available for musical accompaniment at your request. We welcome you to email us your song choice prior to audition day so as to be as prepared as possible, you may also bring your sheet music with you on the day of auditions. Please note that accompaniment is not required for your audition but is an asset. We are looking for creativity and fun as much as we are talent, so relax and have fun with it!

There will also be a group portion of the audition where we will play games and focus on teamwork.

Please bring with you a recent headshot (it can be a photo your parent takes), a completed audition form, water, comfortable clothes, and a positive attitude.

Any youth ages 11-18 years interested in auditioning can email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for their audition time or more information.

If selected for the WCT Youth Group, an annual fee of $200 ($185 (workshop fee) + $15 (youth+one parent membership fee) will be required at the first day.

Thank you for your interest in Whitby Courthouse Theatre, we can’t wait to meet you.
