Summer Conservatory Productions
Acceptance into Center Stage (our high school program) is based on auditions held in March prior to each summer session. The audition process consists of a preliminary vocal and movement audition. If needed, students may be asked to return for a dance, acting and/or singing callback. All roles for Center Stage productions are cast based on the March auditions.
No audition is required to participate in Spotlight or Starlight theatre programs. Roles are cast from auditions held during the first week of classes.
Please note that some roles may be double cast and understudies are frequently cast for larger roles. All casting decisions are at the discretion of the Conservatory artistic staff.
