WHAT WILL YOU DO AT THE AUDITION? We will play some games, answer questions, exchange ideas, and get to know each other. Wear comfortable clothing that allows for freedom of movement.

CONFLICTS? At auditions, you will be asked to write down your schedule and any known conflicts for the rehearsal and performance period. Bring your calendars, please!


Teen-ish peoples, have you ever watched a sketch comedy show or a funny one act, and thought, “I could make that!” No? Well, you totally could. And you should join Miller Susen, whose name is not backwards, no for real Miller is her first name, for the 2018 Live Arts Teen-ish Theater Workshop!

We want to see you at auditions! “Auditions” will consist of talking, listening, playing games, and gauging fit for the project and cast chemistry.

We will rehearse twice a week for 8 weeks, and at the end of these 8 weeks, we will present… Whatever it is we made!  A few short plays? One longer play? Some sketch comedies and one really intense monologue with super dramatic shouting at the end?  Who knows! But it will be 100% ours, and 1,000% entertaining and original.

This will be our fourth year doing the Teen Theater Workshop, and it’s been a blast every time. So, GET IN HERE!


Minimum 6, maximum 13 Middle and High School actors per cast. In 2017 we had two casts who produced two different 45 minute plays.

We encourage everyone to audition and participate. It will be most fun and truthful if we have a nice mix of actors of different backgrounds, ages, and ethnicities.

NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR : We know the description of this theater happening is a little amorphous, and purposefully so! Please feel free to contact Miller directly at with questions, or for more specifics.
