Youth Circus Program

An intensive experience that pairs professional artists and youth performers to collaboratively create an original new show!

Our Youth Circus Program is for students 5th grade and older. It takes place every fall and spring and includes high-quality training in drama, dance, aerial, and circus arts. Each Youth Circus culminates in a fully-produced show and is one of our most popular ticketed events of the year.

Spring Youth Circus Auditions

This production will rehearse both online and in small group rehearsals at the Actors Gym. The final production will be a live streamed recording.

Rehearsals start April 14th:

-Wednesdays 6-8PM
-Saturdays 3-6PM
-Sundays 2-5PM

Interested in auditioning? Please fill out this form and submit your video audition by Friday, April 9th at 7pm!

Your audition should answer the following prompt:

What is something that makes you feel HOPEFUL or BRAVE? 

This video must also somehow incorporate (in no particular order):

– One cool circus trick
– An entrance and exit from the frame
– Moments of playing with closeups/distance from the camera,
– A very bad joke (“bad” as in will make you groan and roll your eyes, not “bad” as in will get you sent to the principal’s office.)

NOTE: You will not be evaluated on the difficulty of the skills in your audition, so don’t worry about doing anything advanced. In fact, we would prefer to see some truly quirky skills. Remember to be creative! The only “right” thing to do is whatever excites you the most.
