Bucks County Playhouse is seeking teens ages 13-18 to audition for the 2021 Bucks County Playhouse Youth Company. This year’s program will have the teens involved in the writing and creative process culminating in an original theater piece of songs, dances and stories.
Virtual and in-person auditions are available. In-person auditions take place Saturday, May 22, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. and 4 to 5:30 p.m., at Lambertville Hall, 57 Bridge Street in Lambertville, New Jersey. The program takes place June 26-July 25 (no rehearsals July 2-5). Rehearsals will be Monday-Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; however, this schedule may change slightly due to pandemic-related protocols. The show will have two performances a day July 22-25 on the Playhouse stage, 70 S. Main Street in New Hope.
An appointment is required for both in-person and virtual submissions. Contact Kelly Wilson at email@example.com. The deadline for securing an appointment is Friday, May 21.
Participants must prepare 16 bars of a ballad or 16 bars of an up-tempo song of their choice and one three minute monologue of their choice (comic or dramatic). For in-person auditions, attendees must provide their own sheet music and virtual audition candidates should have recorded music ready as an accompaniment. A photo is required for in-person and virtual submissions (need not be a professional photo). Resumes are not required, but participants may bring them. Callbacks, by invitation only, will be held Sunday, May 23, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Currently, the Playhouse is operating under state-mandated restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants will be contacted about protocols for in-person auditions, but in the meantime, an in-depth rundown of the current protocols for the theater can be found here.
