Our upcoming semester.

WINTER/SPRING 2023

The Arkansas Repertory Theatre and the Argenta Community Theater proudly partner to offer:

PRE-PRO COMPANY | 8th-12th Grades

Pre-Professional Company (Pre-Pro) is ACT II and the Arkansas Repertory Theatre’s audition-only performance program featuring the top high school-age singers, dancers, and actors in the area. This small company of pre-professional performers will meet weekly for advanced training and rehearsals. Throughout the duration of the course, students will explore challenging musical theatre solo/ensemble repertoire, advanced scene work, the business of the industry, audition & college prep, TV/Film Acting, and host special masterclasses featuring guest artists from the entertainment industry.

Pre-Pro Company members will be cast in the Argenta Community Theater’s mainstage season production of Bring It On: The Musical, running in September 2023. All students in the Pre-Pro Company will be cast in Bring it On, however, the production will require further auditions for specific roles. Note: while encouraged, participation in Bring It On is NOT required to participate in the spring course.
