Senior Company is an advanced program for committed students seeking to train intensively in the craft of acting. Through a combination of working on a short play and professional workshops, Senior Company members will learn how to lift the script off the page, and explore their voice as creative artists. The class takes place online on Saturdays, 1:30 – 4:30PM, throughout the Winter and Spring. As we are unable to know the exact circumstances of our ability to perform in-person come the Spring, we will be determining at a later date how we will negotiate the final performance.

This two-term program culminates in a presentation of the students’ work to be performed in June. Students will also have an opportunity to participate in the directed readings of our Writers’ Bloc presentations in March.

We are excited to announce that Sukaina Ibraheem will be the director of our Senior Company 2022.


Audition Information

The audition process this year involves two things:

  1. An Expression of Interest form to be submitted by Monday, January 3, 2022.
  2. An online audition (30 minutes):
    a) An interview with the director of the Senior Company and the Drama School Director.
    b) Scene work: in the week prior to your audition, we will email you a short two-person scene. You do not need to memorize it. You do need to read it over several times, so that you are familiar with the dialogue. You also need to come prepared with choices about the characters’ objectives – what they want from the other person in this scene. You may be asked to read either character. Be prepared to be redirected once.

The Expression of Interest form can be found here. Your audition time will be confirmed once you have submitted a completed registration form.

Audition Dates (Online):

An individual 30-minute audition can be chosen from within the following time-frames:

Tuesday, Jan. 4: 4PM– 8PM
OR Wednesday, Jan. 5: 4PM – 8PM

If you wish to audition, please contact Taranjot Bamrah, Education & Participation Communications Coordinator, tbamrah@youngpeoplestheatre.org, to schedule an audition.

If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to email Liz Pounsett, Drama School Director, at lpounsett@youngpeoplestheatre.org.

Please note: We will not process your payment until a spot in the Senior Company has been offered and accepted by the student and parent/caregiver. As spots in the Senior Company are limited to a maximum of 10, we encourage students who wish to guarantee Winter term programming to simultaneously register for the Gr. 9-12 Drama class of their choice. Payment will be transferred if student is accepted into the Senior Company.

Bursaries for the Drama School and the Senior Company are funded in part by a generous donation from Ada Slaight.
