MORRISTOWN, NJ  - Auditions for the Mayo Performing Arts Center's teen Performing Arts Company will take place on Sunday, September 13, 2015 from 1 pm - 4 pm at the Theatre. Signups begin at 12:30 pm.

The Performing Arts Company is a troupe of two dozen performers ages 13-21 who can sing, dance and act, and are looking to use their talent to better the community. This musical troupe acts as ambassadors for MPAC by performing Broadway-style musical numbers at community events, fundraisers, hospitals, special events and festivals around New Jersey. This is a great opportunity to sharpen skills, gain exposure and help those in need.

Company rehearsals are Tuesday evenings from 6 pm - 8 pm and some Sunday afternoons. Performances vary, but they are mostly weekends and Thursday evenings. Last year, the company performed at over three dozen events, and had the opportunity to perform on the MPAC stage with Broadway stars Kelli O'Hara and Brian Stokes Mitchell.
