YSP does not involve auditions or rejections. Any young person who registers will receive one or more substantial speaking roles.

YSP is committed to the principle that no one should be excluded from participation because of the costs of tuition. Anyone who needs a reduced tuition can select any rate above one-half the basic tuition fee and may opt to spread tuition payments over several months. If even one-half of the basic fee, spread over 4 monthly payments, is beyond your means, YSP will try to provide a larger scholarship or a more extended pay period.
