AUDITIONS for 2010-2011 Ensemble

Are you into theatre? Want to make a difference?

Want to get paid to be creative?

Work with other teens from across Austin to create, perform and tour an original play about preventing relationship violence. Become a peer leader and use your talent to educate other teens through theatre.

We are currently auditioning for the 2010-2011 Changing Lives Youth Theatre Ensemble.

Changing Lives is a group of teens who devise and perform original theatre pieces to educate their peers about safe and healthy relationships in an effort to prevent teen dating violence and relationship abuse. This program is a collaboration between Theatre Action Project and SafePlace.

This is a PAID opportunity to put your talent and creativity to good use in our community!

High school aged actors, writers, dancers, musicians & creative types are encouraged to apply! Bring a friend!

No experience necessary/ enthusiasm & teamwork required.

Students in the ensemble must commit to the program for a full school year. The ensemble rehearses twice a week (Tuesdays & Thursdays 7-9 pm). In the Fall, we will build our ensemble skills and create our play. In Spring, we tour to middle schools, high schools, conferences and special events in the community.
