Theatre Troupe (Focus Track): Students will be admitted by Audition Only
Requirement for Entry: Invitation only. Must be 10 years old to audition. Students need to be enrolled in an Acting Class or Musical Theatre Class AND a Dance or vocal Training Class.
Students admitted to the Theatre Troupe are RPA’s Advanced Acting students. Our Troupe is centered in building an ensemble that will be given the principle rolls in our mainstage productions. Using their developed skills in character development and a wide variety of acting techniques they use their class time to rehearse. Troupe members are expected to volunteer in some capacity at RPA whether it is helping to clean a studio, painting or striking a set, assist in a class, or in other ways created by the student. They are expected to participate in community events and will be required to participate in our Winter and Spring fundraisers.
To join Theatre Troupe is to take on a leadership role at Riverside Performing Arts. A student’s ability to meet these expectations is taken into account during the audition process.
