If you’re a 4-H’er who loves to sing and dance or work behind the scenes of musical productions, you may want to apply to be a performer or technical staff of the 2013-2014 Kentucky 4-H Performing Arts Troupe and Board.

The troupe began in 2012 as an offshoot of the popular Talent Show track at the Kentucky 4-H Teen Conference.

To become a troupe  member, 4-H’ers must be in the ninth through 12 grades and attend 4-H’s Issues Conference, Teen Conference and Summit. Troupe members make a yearlong commitment to the group. Members must attend a music camp and organize and lead a performing arts camp for middle school 4-H’ers. Additionally, they must attend at least three 4-H or University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service performances a year beyond the conferences and Summit.  Members’ commitments to the troupe will end in June 2014.

To apply, interested 4-H’ers must complete an application form, available at local offices of the UK Cooperative Extension Service. In addition to the form, applicants must include a separate document that explains their qualifications and includes a Performing Arts Programming proposal. Young people interested in being performers should bring both documents to the live audition, which will occur the afternoon of June 10 during 4-H Teen Conference. Technical staff members do not have to audition. Troupe members will be determined then and will include 12 performers and four technical staff.

For more information on 4-H performing arts opportunities, contact the 4-H youth development agent at the (COUNTY NAME) Cooperative Extension Service.

Educational programs of the Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, sex, religion, disability or national origin.
