General Auditions and Meetings

General auditions and meetings are conducted to ensure access by means of an introduction to Artistic Director Nikki Loach, and Artistic Associate Ali DeRegt.

Quest encourages all artists to explore theatre for young audiences as part of their ongoing practice. We are open to inspiration from any artist who is passionate about sharing their love of theatre with young people. We welcome artists of all races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, religious affiliations, and abilities, as these represent the audience we serve.

Our programming covers the scope of performance, arts education, community engagements, play readings, creation development projects and volunteer opportunities. We are interested in meeting actors, playwrights, stage managers, directors, designers, and other artists interested in conversations about, or projects for, young audiences.
