Junior Fellows Program

Now in its third year as a component of the Cabaret & Performance Conference, the Junior Cabaret Fellows Program offers a select group of local middle and high school students the opportunity for professional vocal instruction, movement, and hands-on artistic guidance in the art of performance.

The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center invites New London County residents ages 12-19 to audition for the Junior Fellows Program, under the direction of Brad Simmons.  Junior Fellows will have two weeks of master classes and performance opportunities alongside the O’Neill’s professional guest artists at the 2014 Cabaret & Performance Conference, under Artistic Director, Grammy and Emmy Award winner, John McDaniel.  Students selected to participate must be available July 23rd - August 2nd, from 9am-10pm daily.

Auditions will be held Friday, April 25th from 2-6 p.m. by appointment only.   The show's theme will be based on the television show "American Horror Story: Coven."  Students auditioning should prepare a song of their choice and a short Stevie Nicks or Fleetwood Mac song.  We strongly suggest wearing "bohemian gypsy hippie" attire.  Choose audition material that is emotional in nature.  A pianist will be provided.  Students must bring sheet music to the audition.
