Young theatre talent sought

Surrey Youth Theatre Company (SYTCO) is holding auditions for both the regular company and a new company for children in early elementary school grades.

Auditions for the 2011-2012 season will be held Monday, June 6 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m., by appointment only.

The main company, known for such recent productions as Madeline’s Christmas, A Year With Frog and Toad and The Orphan Train, is looking for young performers aged eight to 17.

The Mini SYTCO is for children aged six to eight who are going into either Grade 1, 2 or 3 in the fall.

Company founder Susan Pendleton said the ability to be a “creative, responsible, reliable and supportive hard worker” – and to commit to a rehearsal and performance schedule – is essential.

Audition workshop fee is $35, or $15 for the Mini SYTCO company.
