“Experiences through SPARC have changed our child’s life for the better in so many ways – she’s no longer a shy, quiet child – she loves the stage, public speaking, singing, dancing and acting and hopes to continue for many years to come.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Can my student audition for multiple productions?
Students are allowed to audition for productions based on the grade they are in/entering. Please check each audition carefully to determine which auditions are eligible for your student.

How does my student know what to bring/wear to auditions?
Once you register for an audition slot, you will receive an email with more detailed information on what your student should prepare for their audition.

What do I do if my child wasn’t cast?
Take a look at our other program offerings! We have some great classes and workshops for your student to strengthen their skills and prepare for their next audition. In summer, you may want to register for a backup SPARC camp because summer camp programs are so popular and fill quickly — if they are cast in a production, you can simply withdraw from the camp (as long as it is more than one month before it begins) and receive a refund.

If you have questions, please contact our education team at learnest@sparconline.org.
