Performance Workshops

June 13 - July 28, 2016

Auditions for these performance workshops are by invitation following the initial interview/audition for the Young REP Theatre Workshop.

"I have never been more challenged as a performer or a person in my life until Young REP. The unique environment of encouragement, professionalism, and education is one of great value. I cannot think of a better place for young people to come together and explore themselves and the theatre."
