Teen Opportunities at McCarter Theatre

I'm a big fan of McCarter Theatre in Princeton. Not only do we regularly attend their productions, but all of my children took classes there and both of my daughters worked for them.

So I am happy to pass along this announcement  about an upcoming audition (Monday, February 10th) for aspiring teen actors (13-16, non-equity) who live in the greater Princeton area. The plays are 2 classics-The Barber of Seville and The Marriage of Figaro-and will be performed in repertory from April 1st through May 4th.

In addition to the opportunity to perform in the Ensemble, the announcement (scroll down to the bottom) includes details about applying for a summer volunteer apprenticeship. McCarter is offering the following apprenticeships: 

  • Assistant Choreographer
  • Teaching Artist Assistant
  • Costumes
  • Lighting 
  • Production Assistant
  • Props
  • Scenic Design
  • Assistant Stage Manager
  • Summer Camp Pre/Post Care
I hope you'll let us know if you join the cast of The Figaro Plays so we can look for you on stage!
