KIDSTAGE Originals: Actors

KIDSTAGE Originals is an original musical project created by emerging theatre artists. Students in grade 9–age 20 generate their own original material under the mentorship and guidance of a professional writing, composing, and directing team. The program emphasizes the process of creating a production from the ground up, primarily focusing on the creation of the script.

Adding the Actors

Once the writing team has a completed script, student actors are added for the final 1–2 months of the KIDSTAGE Originals process and the show is shared with an audience for feedback. Under the guidance of a professional director, actors work with the student writers to refine the script. Changes are made to the script up until opening night. As such, successful actors in the KIDSTAGE Originals program are highly organized and not afraid to learn new material in an extremely short timeframe.


Writers apply and are selected in September/October. (Interested in the writing team? Read about the writers’ process and check out the writing team application, which is due October 12.)

Actors join the process in January/February, with performances in March.
