Nail Your Audition

The Fairmount Center Theatre Department is proud to announce our new workshop – Nail Your Audition. Improve your performance in a special group audition prep session with our theatre instructors! Bring a monologue or song you’re already preparing or use examples from the upcoming Fiarmount Youth Theatre production, Kids’ Country, and get specialized coaching on ways to improve your performance.

On Camera for Actors & Singers

This pre-professional program offers actors and singers 12 years and over the exciting opportunity to develop on camera skills needed for commercials, television, film and vocal performance. Through performance, students will work on technique, improve audition skills, build confidence beyond performance, and just have FUN!

We are also home to the Fairmount Youth Theatre. This long-standing program provides children ages 7-14 years a creative outlet and opportunity to take part in a community show. Many alumni from the Fairmount Youth Theatre program, led by Patti Susman with Joan Bendix and Merlynne Hancock, have gone on to do professional commercial acting work.

Fairmount Youth Theatre Presents…

Presented in memory of David Cockley

It’s a kids’ country! Fed up with the grown ups bossing them around, the kids nominate a young girl, Mary Lou Gimble, to run for mayor of her small town. Her opponent is her Uncle, the current mayor, Gus Gimble. The vote is tied. The only one who can break the tie is Mary Lou’s grandmother, who is also the mayor’s mother. Will the Kids or adults prevail?

Class begins January 21st
