YPCo (formerly known as the Youth Performers Company and Young Actors Company) is an elite 2-part training program for students aged 13-18 who show exceptional talent as performers.
In the first part of this program, students audition for the YPCo Summer Boot Camps.
After attending the YPCo Boot Camp, students are eligible to audition for the YPCo Productions, which are presented on the Neptune Scotiabank Stage.
*Please note that all YPCo and Neptune Theatre Programs require a paid fee. For information or to inquire about scholarship opportunities please CLICK HERE.

How Can I Audition for YPCo Productions?
Neptune Theatre School is working hard to revamp our summer programs. We are consulting with Public Health and with the Canadian Culture and Heritage departments to come up with plans (both for in-person and virtual programs) that will meet the safety guidelines while ensuring we can still bring you the amazing pre-professional training you expect from us.
That being said these programs WILL continue this summer, though they may be redesigned.
Students must still send in a little audition video with three components:
1) a short monologue (1-2 minutes) ideally from a play.
2) a short song (1-2 minutes) any style
3) a thirty second blurb telling us who you are and what you love about performing and what you hope to get out of the program. Is there a program or aspect of a program that interests you most.
*please be sure to label the clip with your name and the program you are auditioning for.
The simplest way to share is to download it to youtube, unlisted and share the link with your name and contact to firstname.lastname@example.org
We would like these submissions by June 26th.
