Why does my child have to audition?
Since all RedED programs tailor the curriculum to meet the needs of our students, we love to get to know our students a bit before the first day of camp. Student auditions not only allow us to cast the show by the first day, but gives the Director of Education, Artistic Director, and Education Coordinator a chance to greet each child and learn a little about their interests before they begin to study with our team.

Does my child have to prepare their audition?
Upon registration, your child will receive a monologue and choice of songs they can use to audition, or they may prepare something of their own.

What is the Orientation Breakfast?
The Orientation Breakfast is a dedicated time where parents and students can meet the instructional team, receive a tour of the Redhouse facility, and enjoy refreshments while camp materials are given out ahead of time.

Orientation & Audition Dates TBA.

When does registration close?
Registration closes on June 10th.

Are scholarships available?
Yes! Scholarship applications are due June 1st. To apply for a scholarship, click here.
