"The ensemble model is superb — for our non-sporty kid, we are seeing all of the benefits of a team sport around an activity she loves. The kids collaborate, bond, support each other, develop a sense of responsibility and commitment to the ensemble, and have inside jokes and war stories. Acting in front of live audiences builds confidence and resilience and we’re getting to watch her skills grow and evolve with each performance.
And, the classic material (Shakespeare, Molière) is giving them a sophisticated literary education on top of all the fun! We just can’t say enough great things about Traveling Players!"

Students who have been at Traveling Players before know the power of a strong and well-balanced ensemble. But how do you create a cohesive and effective ensemble? You need a mix of experiences and backgrounds – students of different ages, genders, and leadership experience — all of whom are eager to support and challenge each other to do their best work.
Our Swing Year students are eligible to perform in different ensembles, which will offer them different experiences.
Please audition only once – for the program that you are more interested in. We will take your preference into consideration when deciding ensemble assignments, but will place you in the ensemble that we feel is most appropriate for your growth as a performer.
6th Grade Swings: Audition for either the Mythology Ensemble or the Thespian Ensemble - or the Improv Intensive (2wk)
8th Grade Swings: Audition for either the Thespian Ensemble or the Shakespeare Ensemble - or the Improv Intensive (2 or 3 wk). You can also interview for tech. If interested in both acting and tech, please audition AND interview.
Please do not be discouraged if you are placed in a different ensemble than your preference. It is likely because we think you will receive a better challenge or more leadership opportunities in the other ensemble.
Can't come in person? No problem! We are happy to schedule a Zoom meeting with you. We'll invite students who have been accepted into your desired program to fill out the Zoom room, making it a more enjoyable experience. Technical Theatre Interviews will remain solo.
Please contact Emma Mearns for more information.
*Please Note: Virtual Auditions & Interviews are only for non-local students. Anyone in the DMV area is expected to join us at one of our in-person dates. Thank you!
"Traveling Players delivers what bright, talented children need: challenge, discipline, new experiences, consistency, adults who are a step ahead of them and watching their backs, staying with them long enough to know who they are and encouraging them to become who they want to be with concrete, just-within-reach opportunities."
