It is such an interesting phrase. Does it refer to the loss of something, or is it a form of positive evolution? There’s agreement that it’s not an easy process. People who have had to “grow up too fast’ often suffer hardship or trauma. Those who don’t get to be a child are often expected to take on too much responsibility too quickly. But if we take on responsibility too slowly then we are ‘naïve’, ‘immature’ or ‘kidults’.
In ATYP’s 2020 season we are wrestling with the complexities of growing up and growing older. As this century moves out of its teens ATYP is reflecting on what it is to “grow up”. Is the path to adulthood the same as it has always been, or has the process transformed with different rituals, challenges and milestones?
ATYP proudly offers open auditions for all of our season shows. If you fit the age range specified in the audition notice, then we want to see you! We also provide updates on other industry auditions and are happy to answer any questions you might have.
