SFT Young Company

The Stirling Festival Theatre is dedicated to nurturing young talent and their love of theatre through our SFT Young Company. Youth from ages 10 to 18 are given the opportunity to come together and create fully staged productions under the mentorship from professionals in the Canadian theatre industry. They learn not only their lines, songs, choreography and back stage management skills but also how to fulfill a commitment and work as a team.

Here’s what you need to do to prepare for your audition:

    1. Book an audition in advance by:
    2. You are expected to prepare a song and a 1 – 2 minute audition piece. This piece can be a part of a scene, a story, a poem, or a monologue.
    3. We will also want to have a chat with you and may ask you to read from the script or present your audition piece in a different way.
    4. We may also ask to take a casual photo so that we can better relate names to faces. These photos will be digitally deleted and hard copies destroyed when the show is finished.
    5. The Audition Form contains information about the rehearsal and performance schedule as well as forms that you need to complete. Please make a copy for your records. You will need to:
      • Read everything carefully and fill out the forms in advance of your audition,
      • Sign the form. Also have your parent or guardian sign if you are under 18,
      • Bring the complete audition package with you to your audition.
