This inspirational show celebrates the founding of America and the diversity that makes the USA the unique and wonderful country it is today. Through a series of vignettes, songs, and comedy sketches reminiscent of a WWII USO performance, the cast and their audience will explore what it means to be We, the People of the United States. Actors are not required to sing or dance for this workshop, but the opportunity is available for those who so desire.
This workshop, directed by Laura Richards Bakin and Nancy Jenks, is scheduled to begin Saturday, December 30, 2017, with auditions. All registered youth are guaranteed a place in the cast. You will be contacted to schedule an audition time when your registration is confirmed. If your actor cannot attend on this date, please make arrangements in advance for a private audition. We welcome new "techies" also, but available crew positions are few. If you are registering someone who wishes to serve as a technician, please contact us first to be certain space is available.
Rehearsals for production workshops are scheduled with participants' schedules in mind. You will be asked for a list of date and time conflicts after you register, and you can make changes to that list up to December 30th. We ask that, once the schedule reflecting these blackout dates is completed, you and your actor commit to attendance at all scheduled rehearsals. Unexcused absences may mean the loss of a role. The only days which are absolutely mandatory are the rehearsals during Tech Week, (for this show, February 26 through March 1, 2018), and the performances.
Six performances of We the People will take place over two weekends at the Black Box Arts Center: March 2 through 11, 2018. (Fridays at 7:00 pm; Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 pm).
To confirm your place, fill out the registration form and pay online or mail us a check. Either way, once payment is received, your child's place in the workshop is confirmed.
