BOLINGBROOK – DuPage County Area Project (DuCAP) will hold auditions for Artists Illustrating Meaningful Messages (AIMM), a new community focused project, Friday at the Bolingbrook Community Center.

DuCAP is looking for 12- to 18-year-olds who display proficient skills in dancing, acting, poetry, or singing.

“Our goal is to choose talented youth for our performing arts troupe because we hope to make A.I.M.M. one of DuCAP’s signature programs,” said DuCAP Project Supervisor Cheryl Jordan.

The troupe will illustrate important and relevant issues that young people face that often create a need for prevention and intervention through various performing art forms. They will hold performances at schools throughout the suburbs.

AIMM will engage the student audience in an approachable, entertaining and relatable way using platforms that allow issues to be presented in a non-threatening style, yet achieve the goal of bringing to the forefront the concerns that many youth face but are often reluctant to talk about

DuCAP is a private, not-for-profit organization that has a spirited staff and volunteers who develop and sponsor efforts aimed at preventing juvenile delinquency, creating a strong community and keeping the community’s youth out of trouble.

To reserve an audition slot contact Jordan at 630-664-5560.
