Welcome to the Old Town Playhouse Young Company located in beautiful Traverse City, Michigan.
We are a non-profit, community theater offering classes, performances and summer camps for Traverse City and all of northern Michigan.
If you'd like to find out about we've got going on - and we've got a lot going on - send us and email at: email@example.com.
Auditions for the touring group known as The Repertory Company will be held Monday, September 29 from 4:00 to 6:00 at the Old Town Playhouse. Auditionees must be at least 13 years old (or turn 13 by Dec. 31) and hold a 3.0 or higher in school. This group tours a Shakespeare play and a Children’s Theatre play to local schools and libraries throughout the year. Once cast in the company, membership continues through High School graduation. Students will be given college-level instruction in Shakespeare and Theatre History and will participate in ongoing fundraising to support theatre excursions to see world-class theatre productions in Canada and abroad.
Prospective Company members should prepare a Shakespearean monologue and will be asked to read from A Midsummer Night’s Dream and/or Much Ado About Nothing, as well as from East of the Sun, West of the Moon. Come dressed to move. Tuition of $150 will be taken only upon entry into the program.
