Free Street Youth Ensemble Audition

October 4 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Free Street is inviting youth ages 14-19 to join our ensemble! Every year, this ensemble comes together to create an original play about issues affecting Chicago youth. During this process, our ensemble learns performance and writing techniques, while partnering with community organizations, and learning from arts professionals through weekly workshops. We welcome youth with all levels of theatrical training, from all across the city.
WHERE:
1419 W Blackhawk St. Floor 3 Chicago, IL 60642
Masks are required
Pulaski Park is under construction, but you can enter the building and get to the third floor.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE AUDITION:
An workshop style day, to give you a sense of what an average day at Free Street would look like. You’ll talk, move around, and learn about the program.
Youth are expected to arrive at the start of the audition time, and stay for the full duration. DM us or email katrina@freestreet.org if you have time concerns.
WHEN/WHERE DOES THE ENSEMBLE MEET:
In the fall, we meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5pm-7pm at the Pulaski Park building. When we get closer to the performance in the spring, some additional days will be added. Free Street can support some transportation assistance in special circumstances.
SO WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?
Resume builders, and tips.
Recommendation letters for colleges, jobs and other programs.
MONEY!!! We pay our youth to be part of the ensemble.
Connections to a larger Chicago artistic and activist community: Free Street brings in professional artists to lead guest workshops, and collaborates with local activists and grassroots organizations to create our shows.
Notoriety: Free Street’s Youth Ensemble is nationally recognized. We have been featured in local newspapers such as Southside Weekly, and national magazines like Teen Vogue.
Friends and mentors!
