Information for Perspective Parents

Thank you for your interest in YPT Shows!

If you’re checking us out in between productions, take a look at information on our classes or camps. These are a great way for young people to get their feet wet with musical theater and YPT.

For Young People, there are two tracks of involvement on YPT shows:
Cast Member
Tech Team Member
These two groups combine to make up our YPT Company on each show!

Both groups begin with auditions/interviews. Watch for announcements on our website and through our Email Blast Service. Auditions/Interviews are generally held in September, December and February of each year. Complete instructions and all of the necessary forms will be on YPT’s website.
