SteppingStone Theatre is proud to invite you to audition for our Core Company! We’re seeking young men and women ages 15-19 to be a part of our Core Company for the 2018-19 season.
What is Core Company?
Core Company is our teen acting company, who are leaders and mentors for their peers. Core Company meets with the Artistic Director and the Production Manager on a monthly basis, attends training workshops, and each Core Company member participates in 1-3 productions, either as an actor or a technician.
What are you looking for?
We’re looking for teens who have the ability to act, sing, and dance skillfully. We’re also looking for individuals with leadership skills, who show initiative and agency. For those interested in the technical side: we’re also looking for individuals with leadership skills, initiative, agency, and competency in technical theatre skills. Technicians should apply separately, and not sign up for an audition slot (unless they’d like to do both).
Actors and technicians of color, LGBTQA+, and differing abilities are encouraged to apply and audition!
What will I be expected to do?
When in a show, the Core Company is expected to lead warm-ups, provide support and assistance to their peers throughout the rehearsal and production process. They will also assist the stage managers, directors, or Production Manager as needed. Core Company members will be cast in shows wherever they’re needed—it might be as a technician, a supporting or ensemble role, or a lead role. For each show in which they participate, Core Company members will receive a stipend based number of weeks they are in rehearsal and production. There is no stipend given when Core Company isn’t participating in a show.
Core Company will receive training from staff and other theatre professionals, and participate in workshops or masterclasses to work on and improve their skills.
How do I sign up for auditions?
You may sign up for auditions on SteppingStone's website. We will accept registrations for auditions up until noon on the day of the audition date.
