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.

Winter 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! The show is open to all AG students in 5th grade or higher. 

Rehearsals will be held in the new year on:

-Wednesdays 6-8PM

-Saturdays 3-6PM

-Sundays 2-5PM

Interested in auditioning? Please fill out this form and submit your video audition to dramadirector@actorsgymnasium.org by Saturday, December 12th @ 11:59pm!

Your audition should answer the following prompt:

You are a member of a very quirky circus troupe. Give a detailed description of your role in the troupe (what discipline you do, what factors you need to consider, etc.).

Additionally, please provide a brief demonstration of the most advanced skill in your discipline.

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, I would prefer to see some truly quirky skills. Remember to be creative! The only “right” thing to do is whatever excites you the most 🙂
