The Canadian College of Performing Arts (CCPA) holds nation-wide auditions to find Canada’s brightest young stars for the September 2015 season.
Auditions held in 11 cities across Canada will select students hoping to join the growing list of successful graduates who can be seen on stage, screen and in recording studios around the world.
The Kelowna will be held on Sunday, Feb. 15, starting at 2:30 p.m. at the Canadian School of Ballet.
At the college, students receive broad professional training which allows the opportunity to pursue diverse careers in the performing arts ranging from international singing, dancing and acting careers to Broadway casting directors and television producers.
“The quality of our students is astounding,” said artistic director Darold Roles. “Each one arrives with incredible talent and potential and upon graduation, they are ready to take on any role; be it on stage or off.”
The tour will commence in Nanaimo on Feb. 7, followed by stops in Vancouver, Kelowna, Edmonton, Toronto, Halifax, Montreal, Winnipeg, and Regina. The audition tour will end with a stop in Whitehorse on March 23.
Video auditions are also accepted until May 1.
The college is owned and operated by the Canadian Heritage Arts Society, a registered charity that oversees the college’s operations. By offsetting the cost of tuition for Canadian students by over 50 per cent each year, CHAS ensures that training at CCPA is financially accessible to all Canadian students.
