2023 Season Sponsor
For certain programs, Drayton Entertainment’s Youth Academy offers fun and enjoyable audition learning opportunities for young performers in the Waterloo Region, Wellington County, Huron County and Simcoe County. We feel there is a wealth of knowledge to be gained from the audition process: gaining confidence, courage, adaptability, receiving positive criticism and developing skills to process possible rejection inherent in the professional performing world.
Drayton Entertainment is committed to inclusion and diversity in casting and encourages all qualified candidates to apply without regard to disability, ethno-cultural identity or gender expression. Drayton Entertainment is committed to providing workers with a barrier free work environment that is free of discrimination and harassment.
CURRENT AUDITION OPPORTUNITIES:
There are no current audition opportunities at this time.
