The Stage Right Young Professionals Program requires an audition and students begin the year together in September. In this school year-long course, students will have intensive class work in musical theatre dance, singing, acting, improvisation, audition technique and more. Students will also learn interviewing skills and headshot and resume etiquette that is current with industry standards. This course is taught in a conservatory style setting with a small class size to give your performer individual attention and focus on their specific goals and needs.


The Young Professionals Program is a full school year program. The first year, tuition for the program is $1,250. 

Once your YPP student has completed their first full year, Education Director Amanda may approve them for continuing education. The YPP program for returning students will be $1000/year

2. Consider trying a 5 week class if a program is already in session. Our 5 week classes are a great way to test the waters with acting.

3. Sign-Up for an audition slot (usually released in June for the following year)

4. Prepare for an exciting year!
