Lights Up!: Auditions are Due

By Steven Libowitz   |   September 10, 2020

Lights Up!, Santa Barbara’s newest teen theater company that serves as a professional, yet inclusive and creative home for the youngsters, is currently auditioning for its 2020-21 company membership. Interested actors, singers, and dancers aged 12-19 are invited to audition for admission and the opportunity to attend callbacks for specific shows with the rest of the company. Company members also get access to Lights Up! workshops, special events, and learning/performance opportunities, and become part of our community. Once accepted, members choose between acting, musical, or combo programs based on age and experience.

To audition, take a video of yourself singing a song that is in a comfortable range and shows your abilities, and also record a short monologue, either dramatic or comedic of 30-60 seconds. (Ideas for monologues are available.) Submit the video to by September 13, and then respond to a short questionnaire that will be sent to you.

Lights Up! is aiming to produce two full-length musicals live, but also has the ability to pivot to a filmed format if necessary. Musical track rehearsals resume on Sunday afternoons beginning late September, either in an outdoor location or on Zoom, in keeping with county guidelines for safety. Email with questions, or visit
