Youth Troupe | Ages 10-13

Bravo Academy’s Advanced Music Theatre Troupe Program is a year-long experience 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 and fast-paced year-long experience that takes your music theatre skills to the next level. Enthusiastic performers ages 10-13 will learn advanced techniques and put their singing, acting, and dancing abilities to the test!

There are three Youth Troupes with different rehearsal schedules:

  • Thursdays 6:00-8:30pm, and some Sundays 9:30am-12:30pm
  • Saturday 10:00am-12:30pm, and some Sundays Time TBD
  • Saturdays 1:00-3:30pm, and some Sundays 1:00-4:00pm

All rehearsals take place at our facility at 77 Samor Rd (Unit 4).


The year is divided into two terms: Fall and Spring. The end of each term culminates in a full-scale production of a Junior Musical at the Toronto Centre for the Arts.

Each term, students will audition for roles, giving them the opportunity to practice preparing material and auditioning in front of a panel. Students are cast by the artistic team, often in both principal and ensemble roles.

The rest of the term is devoted to rehearsal, including staging, choreography, and music. Through the rehearsal process, students will learn to create unique characters, work collaboratively with team members, develop ensemble performance skills, and gain confidence!


Fall 2019: Anne of Green Gables

Book, Music & Lyrics: Janet Yates Vogt & Mark Friedman
“A new musical lovingly based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s timeless classic with its unforgettable characters, Anne of Green Gables brings the comical adventures of spunky red-headed orphan Anne Shirley to life, as she wins over her new family and the rest of Prince Edward Island, as well, with her spirit and imagination in this heartwarming story about love, family, and home.”


All of our Troupe programs are audition-based and highly competitive. Troupe auditions are held annually in early 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.

Youth Troupe audition requirements include:

  • 1 music theatre song (age appropriate, 32-bar selection)
  • 1 monologue (30 seconds or under in any style)
  • Sheet music for accompanist  (preferably double-sided, hole-punched and in a binder)
  • Headshot
  • Completed audition form
  • Resume (optional)

We are still accepting video submissions for our spring term. Full audition requirements, along with helpful preparation tips and resources, are available on our Audition page.
