Youth Troupe | Ages 10-13

Bravo Academy’s Advanced Music Theatre Troupe Program is dedicated to providing the finest music theatre education in the Greater Toronto Area.

Students work with INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS and experienced theatre educators to produce high-quality performances, while receiving ADVANCED LEVEL TRAINING in the elements of music theatre. Admission to the program is by audition only, resulting in a FAST-PACED CREATIVE ENVIRONMENT where budding artists can truly shine. Music theatre encourages children to use their IMAGINATION, work as a team, develop communication skills and build self-confidence.

Youth Troupe is a fun-filled program that works collaboratively with like-minded artists to take your music theatre skills to the next level. Enthusiastic performers ages 10-13 will learn to advance their techniques in singing, acting, and dancing!  The perfect program for the young performer who is ready for a challenge, no experience required!

SPRING 2022 SEASON!

Loosely based on a Brothers Grimm fairy tale, Bremen Rock City follows the story of Jack, a guitar-shredding donkey, who escapes from his boring life on the farm to pursue his dream of becoming a rock star like his idol Spike. On Jack’s quest he forms a band called The Strays, which includes Duke, a hopelessly muzzled canine drummer; the artistic and sardonic cat, Lex, who plays a fierce bass; and meek baby rooster Shelley, with the riff‐tastic voice of an angel(fish). The Strays head Bremen Rock City, where music legends are born! But Jack soon gets swept up in the world of free snacks, hugs, and rock n’ roll, and must decide what’s more important: fame or friendship.

Auditions

All of our Troupe programs are audition-based. Troupe auditions are held annually in May for the following school year. Once accepted, students also audition for their role(s) at the beginning of each term. While students do not require past music theatre experience to audition, successful applicants are those that demonstrate a high level of singing and acting ability in the auditions. In addition, a positive attitude, willingness to learn, and overall energy are major factors.

Full audition requirements, along with helpful preparation tips and resources, are available on our Audition page.
