The Professional Training Institute (PTI) is an advanced actor training program for students in 9th-12th grade with an interest in pursuing a professional theater career. Participants will receive free training from some of the top theater professionals in the world, and the Institute culminates in a capstone summer performance for which students are employed as paid, professional actors.
Auditions will be held Saturday August 12th and 19th at Milwaukee Repertory Theater, and callbacks will be held Sunday August 20th. All participants must sign up for an audition slot below. Participants should prepare:
— one memorized monologue (no longer than 1 minute) and
— bring their best talent (slam poetry, singing, playing an instrument, breakdancing, yodeling, tap dancing – you name it!) to showcase in 90 seconds or less.
For auditions, students will choose to share either their monologue or their special talent. For callbacks, students will be asked to share both their monologue and special talent, and so all students are advised to prepare both in advance. Please bring one copy of a recent photograph (professional headshots are not required) and arrive at least 15 minutes before the assigned audition slot to fill out an audition form.
Training Sessions will be held on the second Monday of each month from 5pm – 8pm at Milwaukee Repertory Theater: September 11, October 9, November 13, December 11, January 8, February 12, March 12, April 9, and May 14. An introductory session will also be held on September 5th from 5pm-8pm at Milwaukee Repertory Theater. Members of the Professional Training Institute may not miss more than one training session per year.
