What is the Young Company?

The Young Company program gives participants an incredible glimpse into what being a professional actor is all about, from the audition process to the rehearsal hall and then performing on the Lighthouse Theatre stage.

The group assembles in Simcoe at the rehearsal space for a three-week rehearsal period in July and August, which also includes team-building exercises and introductory theatre training. The cast, supported by Lighthouse’s team of professional technicians and designers, then moves to the Lighthouse stage in Port Dover and entertains audiences from across the region. Many Young Company graduates have gone on to study theatre arts post-secondarily, and some have continued on to professional careers in theatre!

Who can be involved in the Young Company?

Anyone aged 11 to 17 with a passion for theatre. Experience is not required; we encourage all interested to audition!

How do I become a member?

Come to one of our audition dates and show us your creativity!  Whether you come with a prepared song, poem or monologue, this is your opportunity to show us your talent.  We have a limited number of cast members, so if you don’t get a role this year, please do not be discouraged – there is always next year!
