About YC Performance Opportunities

In addition to year-round training in our classes, we offer audition-only performance opportunities for young actors to apply what they’re studying in classes to the stage.

Scholarships Available

YC Performance Opportunities are considered educational acting classes, and projects carry various tuition amounts for participation. We do offer partial and full scholarships, and financial circumstances do not affect casting or participation in any way. Email youngconservatory@act-sf.org for more information about scholarships and financial aid.

All Students Welcome

Students of all abilities, racial identities, and gender identities are welcome and encouraged to audition for YC programs.

Audition Dates for the 2021-22 Season will be announced in June 2021.
