2022-2023 Company Programs
Companies is an exciting acting troupe at LCT designed for young artists who are looking to give themselves a firm foundation in theatre. This group will learn about the various styles, practices, and skills needed to succeed as a professional actor or artisan. Companies was created for students who are serious about theatre, and it requires a significant time commitment. Our weekly meetings will focus on the elements and skills involved with the theatrical art form. Companies’ curriculum is set up in units of study to be determined alongside the young artists.
Each Company will meet on Tuesdays from 6:30-9:00pm for the 2022-23 school year.
Our Companies program has two troupes:
- Jr. Company is for students in grades 6 – 8.
- Company B is for students in grades 9 – 12.
Auditions for the 2022-23 ensemble will be held in-person at Lexington Children’s Theatre September 8-10.
Per CDC guidelines and LCT company policy, if Fayette County is in the red/has high levels of community spread of Covid-19, masks will be required in the building. We encourage all auditionees and any accompanying persons to come prepared with a mask should they be required in the building.
STEP ONE: Prepare your monologue. Auditionees for Jr. Company should prepare one 1-minute monologue. Auditionees for Company B should prepare one 2-minute monologue.

Tips for a great audition:
- Prepare to do a slate by saying your full name and age before reciting your monologue
- Monologues should be chosen from plays or musicals
- Please try to steer clear of monologues from movies and tv shows. If you need help finding resources, please contact LCT’s Education Department at email@example.com
- Don’t be afraid to use the space
- Speak clearly and project your voice
- Wear comfortable clothing to move around in
- Don’t be afraid to make bold choices
- Be willing to try new things
- We do encourage auditionees to try their best to memorize their monologue, however, remember that a strong acting performance is more important than being word perfect
- Have fun!
