Theatre Arts Classes

Fall Production Workshop


For 11 years, SABA has been offering Fall and Spring Production Workshops to the youth in the Concho Valley in order to provide them with a professional theatre experience combined with training in theatre, dance, and vocal performance in a positive environment.  Each workshop concludes with 4 public performances at Foster Communications Coliseum.



Auditions for Seussical will be held Saturday, August 26th at Sunset Mall Community Room next to Sears.  Students must sign up for an audition online for either 9am, 11am, 1pm, or 3pm.  For those students who cannot attend the audition, alternate auditions will be held Tuesday, August 22nd at 6pm at San Angelo Broadway Academy Youth Theatre located at 10 N Taylor.


What to Prepare:

SABA welcomes students with no experience and those with years of experience to all auditions, and our staff tries to make every students experience a positive one without the stress of an "audition".  We ask that students come prepared with an audition song of 16-32 bars....this just simply means a verse or a chorus section of a song.  We want students to sing something they absolutely feel comfortable with which can be any of the following: musical theatre song, current pop song, Disney song, a Christmas song, ....yep just about anything!  And to help with the stress factor, they sing behind a  partition in front of 4 staff members.  Easy Peasy!  After each student sings, we bring the audition group back into the room and students learn a short and fun dance combination to see how well the move and do group cold reads from the script. 


What if I am Cast:

Then CONGRATULATIONS!  SABA auditions can bring out 65-180 students; however, we can only cast a certain amount of children in each show. ...and trust us, our director tries to cast everyone!  For those students who become part of our workshop, we hold rehearsals on Sunday from 2pm-4:30pm and Tuesdays from 5:30pm-7:30pm, however these are not ever Tuesday as we usually call specific groupings in.  While we are more then happy to work around extra-curriculuar activities and be as flexible as we can, we ask that you please list all your conflicts at auditions...this includes conflicts with rehearsal days so that we can use our time wisely as a production team when scheduling rehearsals.  Please know that excessive absences could result in dismissal from the workshop.


How much is tuition:

Tuition for the 15 week workshop is $250.  This includes all workshop fees, partial costume fees, and production fees.  There are times we will occassionaly ask the student if they have a specific style shirt in their closet or shoe if the show leans more toward modern day costuming, but we do not want our students going out and spending money on costumes.  There are several ways to pay tuition: in full by the first day of camp or in two payments (dates on registration form). And as always we offer a 10% sibling discount and limited partial scholarships.
