TYA Fall Title and Auditions Announced (Part 2)

While the TYA Senior Company production title has been out for awhile, Drama Learning Center announced TYA Junior Company’s Fall/Winter production title on social media last week. Following successful productions of SHREK the Musical and The Addams Family, Junior Company will fly high with England’s favorite “practically perfect” nanny, Mary Poppins. Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Mary Poppins received nominations for nine Olivier Awards and seven TONY Awards during an exciting Broadway run of 2,500 performances.

After being the first nanny that hasn’t been sent packing, Mary Poppins takes Young Jane and Michael Banks on magical and memorable adventures. She teaches the children and grown-ups alike that “Anything can happen if you let it.”
Junior Company will have the opportunity to tell this timeless story through memorable songs, enchanting dance numbers, and special effects and illusions. Auditions begin next week by appointment, and some slots remain.

Junior Company students should note that students who are accepted into Fall/Winter session of Junior Company will be unable to do a Drama Learning Center Winter production class. Directors recommend that Junior Company students participate in DLC Fall and Spring production classes in conjunction with TYA Junior Company’s Winter production and Spring skills-based class to maximize their performance opportunities and skill-building potential.

Secure your spot on the audition schedule now. Spaces are limited, and you’re not going to want to miss out on the incredible productions being produced by both companies of TYA Professional Training Program. Full casting call information can be found on our TYA page. Check out our new TYA FAQs if you’re new to the program to get a taste of what to expect. And if you’ve already decided to give TYA a try but want to polish your audition material, consider setting up a couple of audition prep lessons with one of our highly qualified teachers to help you rock your next audition!

13: TYA’s First Summer Intensive

Drama Learning Center’s professional training company for emerging young artists will present Jason Robert Brown’s 13 this month (July 27-29). A hilarious coming-of-age musical about discovering that “cool” is sometimes where we least expect it, 13 follows Evan Goldman as he moves from New York City to a small Indiana town. Grappling with his parents’ divorce, and preparing for his Bar Mitzvah, Evan navigates the complicated social circles of a new school, as well as the ins and outs of learning how to be a successful young adult. With music by Tony Award-winning Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Bridges of Madison County, Songs for a New World), 13 is a musical about fitting in – and standing out!

13 marks the fourth time that TYA Professional Training Program has produced a title by Jason Robert Brown, having previously mounted the area premiere of 13 (2010), Songs For a New World (2013), and Parade (2016). Alums of TYA also shared the stage with the composer when he visited the space for a one-night-only performance in 2014.

Drama Learning Center’s Professional Training Company, TYA (Teaching Young Artists), presents this production of 13 from July 27-29 as the culmination of its first ever summer intensive. The three-week program available by audition only includes master classes with area casting directors and professional artists in addition to rehearsals and skill-building activities. The TYA program allows students to work in a professional theatre environment as they learn about all aspects of theatrical work. TYA has a strong history of bringing cutting-edge titles to local audiences. The group has previously mounted area premieres of Parade, First Date, Carrie the Musical, GHOST the Musical, 13 the Musical, Legally Blonde, and High School Musical. This production continues TYA’s long-standing tradition of producing professional contemporary musical theatre.

13 is presented by permission through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
