We hold auditions in early October for our December Winter Showcase, where local lyra and silks aerialists and modern performers can display their work; this showcase is hosted at the Durham School for Ballet & the Performing Arts.

We hold auditions in early January for our May production; our repertoire currently includes Aladdin, Peter Pan, The Little Mermaid, Pineapple Poll and Cinderella. These are full-scale productions performed at the Carolina Theatre in Downtown Durham.
