JUNIOR Troupe | Ages 7-10

Train with highly skilled teaching artists who are dedicated to fostering students’ singing, dancing, and acting skills. Students will perform in a showcase mid-year and a full-scale Junior Musical in the spring.

Process

Junior Troupe begins the year with several weeks of skill-based workshops, focused on vocal performance, movement, and character work. The fall term culminates in a showcase performance in our Zlotnik Studio Theatre.

Students will audition for their roles in our spring musical, a full-scale Junior Musical. The remainder of the year is dedicated to rehearsing the spring show, which will be presented at the Toronto Centre for the Arts Studio Theatre in North York.

Rehearsals for Junior Troupe are Mondays 6:00-8:00pm, as well as some Sundays 9:30am-12:30pm. All rehearsals take place at our facility at 77 Samor Rd (Unit 4).

Auditions

Troupe auditions are held annually in the spring. Auditions for the 2018/19 school year were held May 9-15, 2018.
