The Miracle Center provides a unique opportunity for Chicago teens. Unlike other educational/training programs where teen actors have to pay to participate, The Miracle Center partners with After School Matters and treats this as a professional opportunity. The teens who perform in Shrek the Musical will receive a stipend rivaling many Chicago theatre companies. In order to audition, you need to be a Chicago resident and must be a high school student starting in the fall of 2017. We are seeking both a theatre ensemble to fill the roles of the show as well as a dance ensemble.
*We are also actively seeking paid tech/design students, so please email with interest.*
