Join us in taking Jubilee into a new era! Students will audition in January and begin a two-month journey with the guidance of our amazing team.

All participants are encouraged to bring in their own pieces as we design the production. Our theme focuses on imagination and the power of youth in the arts.

Auditions are open to ages 11 - 18 (younger performers are welcome to audition and will be accepted on a case by case basis). Please come to auditions prepared to shine!

  • What is the time commitment?

Rehearsals will generally take place 1-2 days a week. Dates will be determined after auditions. Most rehearsals will take place at HCOA. Youth artists should be at all rehearsals, if possible, as this is integral to the process. Absences will be reviewed. If the creative team determine that too many absences have occurred the youth artist may be removed from the program.


  • Are there any mandatory rehearsals?

The week of March 24, leading up to performance on March 30. Any absences during this time will need to be reviewed.


  • Are parents welcome at rehearsals?

This is an interesting question. While I would like to say yes, it is important for our young artists to feel empowered and be given the freedom to create in their own space. Parental attendance is not encouraged, but parental engagement at home is strongly encouraged. (This can be reviewed on a case by case basis, if this is a concern).
