Casting takes place on the first two days of the program for both groups. It is the sole responsibility of the Director, whose decision is final. It is the company policy not to recast productions.

We try to find the best possible combination between student and production. We do not require previous theatrical experience or training.

Enrollment is limited and students are accepted on the basis of first received applications and paid tuition.
