SFT Young Company

The SFT Young Company is dedicated to nurturing young talent and their love of theatre. Youth from ages 12 to 22 are given the opportunity to come together and create something great, learning not only their lines, songs, dance steps and back stage management but also how to fulfill a commitment and work as a team. And it’s fun!

“Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.”
…Plato

Now, here’s what you need to prepare for your audition, which will last about 10 minutes.

 

Auditions are being held on : Saturday, January 13, 2018 & Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 9 am  (there will be no specific time slots booked)

 

You are expected to prepare a song and a short (1 to 2minute) audition piece. This piece can be a part of a scene, a story, a poem, or a monologue. We will also want to have a chat with you and may ask you to read from the script or to present your audition piece in a different way. We may also ask to take a casual photo so that we can better relate names to faces; these photos will be deleted when the project is complete.

 

The next two pages need to be filled out and brought with you to your audition.  The first is your contact information and experience or training you may have.  The second is information about the rehearsal and performance schedule which you will need to fill out carefully, make sure it is signed and bring it with you to your audition.

No charge!

All of the rehearsals will be at SFT, either onstage or in Burrell Hall

 

  • How old do I need to be to audition?

For this production we are looking for kids between 10 and 18 years old.

“TOBOR THE ROBOT” REHEARSALS AND PERFORMANCE CONTRACT:

 

Please review this schedule carefully.  We will need a pretty solid commitment to being available for these rehearsal dates.  Your child’s involvement and actual schedule will depend on the role they are cast and the progress of the project.  I understand that there may be some days that your child is not available, so I am asking that you mark this sheet with the dates your child is NOT available so that I can manage our rehearsal time.  Please sign the bottom of this sheet when you have carefully considered the scheduling, there will be some mandatory rehearsal days and, of course, all performances.  In addition, while I have listed the rehearsal days and times, you child’s actual schedule may be much shorter than the times listed and they may not be required for every rehearsal day.  I will expect that when the rehearsal schedule is provided; you will make sure your child is dropped off and picked up promptly.  If they are not scheduled to be at rehearsal – we do not have supervision available.  This is intended to be a Professional Theatre Experience for the participants and is not a camp.
