Auditions for our annual "Acting Out Student Showcase"
Every year, Deirdre and Mara choose a performance theme to feature all current Acting Out students who wish to participate. Students ages 4-11 years old will perform in “Act 1”, and students ages 12 and up will perform in “Act 2”.
WHERE: Acting Out Studio
WHERE: Brown School Theater, Newburyport
WHEN: Saturday, April 9 and Sunday April 10
There is a participation fee of $50/ per student ages 7 and up. The fee for siblings and students ages 4-6 is $35. If this fee is a hardship please don’t hesitate to contact us - we want every student to be able to participate! The participation fee also covers an Acting Out t-shirt for each student.
*A note about “ACT 1 for students 4-11: Act One will be a performance of “Holka Polka” a mysterious fairy tale about Brenda a young witch who is on a quest to save fairy tale land who is helped by a very friendly wolf. Along the way they meet Cindy, a princess who thinks she is ugly, Humpty Dumpty, a wise wizard, a fairy Godmother and many other fairy tale creatures. Our younger students (ages 4 to 6) will have a featured role as the gnomes in fairy tale land!
Rehearsals will be held Mondays from 5-6 and Wednesdays from 6-7. On March 13 and March 20 there will be Sunday afternoon run throughs. Students must be able to attend at least one rehearsal period per week and both Sunday run throughs.
*A note about “ACT 2” for students 12 and up: This year’s performance will be an original production that students will help to create and write. Our first rehearsals will be brainstorming workshops where students can suggest ideas for characters, storylines and scenes. Our theme this year will be: “HIGH SCHOOL FAIRYTALE MYSTERY”
Rehearsals will be held primarily on Thursday evenings and Saturdays throughout February and March (NO REHEARSALS OVER FEB. VACATION). More specific scheduling information will be handed out at the audition.
