Boston Theater Company’s Teen Touring Troupe is an exciting opportunity for young, committed actors in grades 7-12 to sharpen their performance skills, gain professional touring experience, and grow in a supportive ensemble. Actors will work intensively with director/teaching-artist Sophie Rich on the performance of a Shakespeare play, and will also have the opportunity to learn from other Boston-area professionals in master classes. Throughout our process, we will focus on creating and sustaining a nuanced character, analyzing text, activating the body and the voice, and collaborating as a team both on- and off-stage. We will tour our production to 6 locations all around the Boston area, from schools and libraries to parks and community centers!

Teen Touring Troupe will be performing and touring Macbeth in 2019! 

Rehearses at First Church in Boston, 66 Marlborough Street, Thursdays from 4-7 PM starting February 28th 2019, with a few additional Wednesday and Friday rehearsals as opening night approaches. Tours May 3-11 2019 to 6-7 locations all around the Boston area, from schools and libraries to Boys and Girls Clubs and community centers! 

Auditions will be held Saturday 11/17 from 1-5 PM and Monday 11/19 from 5-9 PM at the Boston Center for the Arts. To schedule a ten-minute audition slot, or with any questions, email Education Director Sophie Rich at

For the audition, we would like you to bring in… 

- A headshot or snapshot and resume

- A memorized 1-2 minute monologue from a play

- A Shakespeare sonnet, which will be sent to you upon scheduling an audition

Tuition for TTT is $400 per student. Full and partial scholarships are available! We will never deny a student an educational opportunity because of concerns around tuition.
