Show off your theatrical talents with the Oakland Center and Kids First Theater

Audition are a sample performance of associate degree by an  actor, singer, musician, dancer or different entertainer. It usually includes the entertainer showing their ability through a earlier memorized and rehearsed solo piece or playing a piece provided to the actor at or presently before the audition.

Auditions at the Oakland Center are held 2+ months prior to its actual show dates. Our rehearsal schedule goes for 4-6 weeks prior to the show performances, pending the show, number in cast, and complexity of the show.

We encourage kids from 4 through 18 years of age. We also encourage parents of children with autism and other disabilities to come see how theater can make a difference for them.  We have several autistic of varying levels who have made some achievements for themselves with the parents seeing some changes in them as a result of the theater activities.


Since kids are put first within our organization, we do our very best to include all who audition a part in a show. 

  • The goal is to see if it is a real interest for child.
  • If they have the commitment it takes to stick with the course of rehearsals and performances.
  • We want to expose kids to theater, as it help with their confidence and gives them new life skills.

We know that many of our cast members come from areas as far as 20 miles to participate in our theater programming in the Youngstown and Boardman areas.  Our theater is near you!  Come and find out how our program can give your kids new life skills.

If you have questions or concerns regarding the audition process, please feel free to email us or contact us at 330-406-0606
