REALITY Auditions for 2013-2014
Auditions passed but it's not too late to join REALITY! Just e-mail Janet Jesse at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can join us for the 2013-2014 season.
REALITY Theatre promotes a space where teens can express themselves freely, explore creatively and educate our communities on the issues young people face. Ensemble members are trained in the theatre arts, the issues presented, and in facilitating post-performance discussions. All interested high school students are encouraged to audition.

Is acting or writing experience required?
No! If you have any acting training or performance experience, that’s great, but it is not required! As long as you are willing to get up in front of people to speak, we will teach you acting skills! As for writing, we do not expect you to be a playwright. Together, we will learn how to turn personal thoughts and stories into performance pieces.
What is the time commitment to participate in REALITY Theatre?
The group meets for training and rehearsals almost every Sunday from 4 pm - 7 pm from September through May at OMNI Youth Services in Buffalo Grove. In addition, the touring troupe members are excused from school once a month to perform for school audiences, and all members perform in weekend and evening shows as they occur.
What are the other requirements?
All troupe members must commit to being completely substance free (cigarettes, alcohol, drugs) and must be willing to communicate healthy lifestyle messages to their peers.
The fee for participation in REALITY is $80 per month. Reduced fees and/or scholarships are available. If you wish to request a reduced fee or scholarship, you can indicate this on the application form at auditions.
