Anyone can sign up for an audition by clicking the Sign Up for an Audition link within each show’s details. The link will take you to Casting Manager where you can create a profile, fill in your information, submit your conflicts, and sign up for an audition time. You are also welcome to fill out the Casting Manager form at The Playhouse on the day of auditions as a walk-up. Our audition crew will help you get signed in with Casting Manager if you need assistance. (You will have an earlier audition time and a shorter wait if you sign up online in advance, and we strongly encourage this.)

HOPE! Drama Troupe is a group of 20 middle school and high school youth whose mission is to end child abuse and neglect and strengthen families in Polk County.

Each year, HOPE! Drama Troupe members use an original script to educate area youth about child abuse and the impact it has on children and families. Their 25-minute performance defines the types of abuse, demonstrates the consequences of abuse, and identifies how to get help. The troupe tackles tough issues that are difficult for youth to talk about and portrays ways to discuss problems and seek assistance.

The troupe generally spends one day each month, November-May, with their professional directors and a counselor, touring Central Iowa and performing for various middle schools, high schools, community groups, and more.

HOPE! retreat will be held on August 10-12 during the day. Rehearsals start September 14, 2021.
