IPOD/MP3 playback will be available, but there will be no accompanist.  Auditioners should bring snacks, lunch (or money for lunch) and a water bottle.

Auditioners must have a signed parental permission slip before auditioning.  Visit www.scera.org/acting for details and forms or contact actingup@scera.org if you have questions. There is a pre-audition meeting for interested auditioners and their parents on Saturday, April 29 at 10:30am at SCERA, where the required parental permission form will also be available.

Acting UP is the premiere group in the SCERA Youth Theatre program and requires a commitment from mid-August through mid-May. Performance opportunities abound, and students participate in the SCERA Youth Theatre Holiday and Spring Music Revue, present several Sunday musical firesides, perform an outreach musical at locations throughout the state, and are cast in their own full-scale musical production each spring.
