Our first mainstage show of the season is our FALL MUSICAL, a perfect opportunity for performers ages 6-18 to showcase their skills onstage in a full-scale production. The audition process is very low-pressure as everyone who auditions is guaranteed a role; further, these shows are double-cast based on age, featuring a Junior Cast (Grades 1-6) and Senior Cast (Grades 7-12), which means that even our youngest performers are given a chance to play leading roles and carry an entire show of their own, and our older performers can truly be challenged to push themselves! The rehearsal process strikes the perfect balance of recreation and skill-building, offering a safe and supportive environment that welcomes performers of all experience levels while maintaining high standards and producing an impressive youth musical.

A pop-culture phenomenon that has inspired generations, FAME follows the final class of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts from their admission in 1980 to their graduation in 1984. All of their bittersweet struggles, fears, and triumphs are depicted by a diverse group of young artists navigating the worlds of music, acting, and dance - each of which their professors insist is “the hardest profession in the world.” The four years of grueling artistic and academic work give insight to the struggles of performers everywhere, making this musical with an unmistakable title the perfect showcase for aspiring young performance artists.

SENIOR CAST (Grades 7-12) is currently full

AUDITION FEE - $25, to be put towards Production Fee

As all performers who audition for the Fall Musical are cast, we will only schedule 50 Junior Cast audition slots and 50 Senior Cast audition slots. Because of this, it is important that those who audition are fully committed to participating in the production; should a performer withdraw, he or she may have taken a slot from someone who truly wished to participate. Therefore, performers are asked to pay a $25 Audition Fee at the time of auditions, which then goes directly towards his or her $225 Production Fee should he or she continue with the show. If he or she chooses to withdraw, the Audition Fee is forfeited.
The audition fee is deferred for 2019-2020 PSP Members.
