Child Auditions

We believe that it’s never too early to fall in love with Shakespeare! With that in mind, we’ve partnered with Chrissie Leech of JENKINTOWN DANCE ARTS to incorporate children into our production of Twelfth Night. The dance interlude will take place in the first half of the show, and all children will be released to a guardian at intermission so that they can enjoy the rest of the performance.

JDA is located at 714 West Avenue in Jenkintown. Children entering kindergarten and older are encouraged. Prior dance experience is not necessary. Children should come in comfortable clothing, with ballet or dance shoes if they have them. (But don’t worry if they don’t–bare feet are fine, too!)

Rehearsals will begin on July 10. We’ll rehearse from 4-5 on Tuesdays and 4-4:40 on Thursdays. We have a technical rehearsal on Sunday Aug. 5, and performances on Monday Aug. 6, Tuesday Aug. 7, Wednesday Aug. 8 and Thursday Aug. 9. While we understand that summer is a busy season, the last few rehearsals will be MANDATORY. If your child will be unable to attend a majority of the rehearsals, and any of the mandatory rehearsals, we ask that you postpone auditioning this year.

Please contact Chrissie Leech at or Bridget Reilly Beauchamp at prior to auditioning with any questions or known conflicts.
