Youth Theatre ProductionS

Overview

Our Youth Theatre Productions feature young actors ranging in ages from 6-18 and provide a full-theatre experience, including costumes, lighting, props, backgrounds, and more. Productions include both theatrical plays and musicals.

Auditions

Generally held 3 months prior to show dates.  Auditionees are asked to prepare a 1-2 minute monologue and be prepared to read from the script.

For musicals, auditionees are asked to prepare a musical theatre song, up to 32 bars, to be performed a capella, and a monologue or cut from a story or poem of no more than one minute in length. Additionally, audtionees will be taught a song, a short dance combination, and may be asked to read from the script.

Once cast, participants pay a registration fee and receive a rehearsal schedule.

Rehearsals

Rehearsals are generally held three times a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30 - 8:30 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm.  The week before the show is tech week, where all of the costumes, lighting, sound, and stage moves are rehearsed, and attendance is mandatory for everyone cast.

Performances

Shows are performed over a weekend, and typically include 3-4 showtimes -  Friday night, Saturday afternoon and night, and Sunday afternoon. Some shows are held over two weekends.

Tickets can be purchased online at genevaparks.org; in-person at Sunset Community Center and Stephen Persinger Recreation Center; or by calling 630-232-4542. Any remaining seats the day of the show will be sold at the Playhouse 38 box office. Concessions, including bottled water, bottled soda,  juice, and candy, are sold on-site at the box office prior to the show and at show intermission.

Parent Volunteers

For each production, the Director may ask for parent volunteers to help with set painting, ushering patrons to their seats, concessions, and box office.
