Youth Performances at the
Saskatoon Fringe Theatre Festival

Performer Audition Application

YAI Theatre and Dance companies will be integrated with the professional performers in our indoor Fringe venues. Each accepted YAI Company will receive six shows and one technical rehearsal in their Fringe venue. Companies will retain a minimum of 70% of their ticket sales revenue.

YAI Music performers receive $150 performance fee for two 45 minute shows or $200 for three 45 minute shows located outside on the Fringe Street Free Stage in the Beverage Garden.

All YAI performers will take part in compulsory pre-festival workshops with a professional performing artist in their genre. These workshops allow for constructive, critical assessment of your work to insure you are prepared for a professional performance and include a tutorial of the technical requirements and publicity opportunities around participation in the Festival.

What you provide

A completed show! Each YAI performance group is responsible for all production related concerns (casting, rehearsals, set/props, instruments, amps, etc). YAI Theatre and Dance performances must be a minimum of 30, and a maximum of 60, minutes in length. YAI Music performances will be 45 minutes. Mentors will help you refine your performance to prepare for a public stage; they are not responsible for helping you complete your script or songs.

Each accepted company is responsible for promoting their own performances and generating their own audience. Assistance can be provided in creating your publicity plan and creating Press Kits for the media upon request.
