Gulfshore Playhouse operates under an SPT-10 agreement with the Actors’ Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers in the United States. Gulfshore Playhouse hosts Equity and non-Equity auditions each spring both locally and in New York City for its mainstage season.

Participants will learn about singing, acting, and dancing on the stage through performance in two full productions, Ebenezer (ages 8-18) and Little Women (ages 13-18). Students may audition for one or both productions! Need-based scholarships are available for both programs.
