Auditions for the 2017-18 Professional Youth Program will be in August and September of 2017.
Are you considering the world of acting as a career? Do you want to feel fully prepared and confident for professional and/or college auditions?
West Chester Studio’s Professional Youth Program selects 12 talented performers and help develop them into working professionals. These talented actors study with Union Professional Actor/Directors: Therese Walden Murphy, Tamara Anderson, Heidi Karpa and Guest directors and actors.
Currently in it’s second year, our actors are enjoying the opportunity to work with us as we refine and enhance to perfectly suit the needs and dreams of young professional actors. The program is designed to give young actors (grades 6-12) the critical skills, knowledge and experience to succeed in the acting profession.
PYP Performers also have the opportunity to add additional Saturday classes at a discounted rate. Professional Industry Workshops are included in the cost of the Monday night class.
Auditions are held in very early fall. Interested actors please prepare a 1-2 minute contemporary monologue. To register for an audition please email Therese at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
