Theatricks Wishes to Say Thanks to their Sponsors

Theatricks was very fortunate to assemble a great group of people to sponsor the various programming for the 2005-2006 season starting with Caskey Orthodontics as the season sponsor. This is Caskey Orthodontics second year to be a Theatricks season sponsor, and before that he sponsored JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT.

Theatricks first show of the season BEAUTY AND THE BEAST was sponsored by Dr. Stacey Thornton, and what an amazing show it was! That was Dr. Thornton's first time as a Theatricks sponsor. Most recently Theatricks completed their production of LITTLE WOMEN sponsored by Hillcrest Anesthesia who also was sponsoring for their first time.

The last show of the Theatricks 2005-2006 season will be WINNIE-THE-POOH sponsored by Red River Nephrology Associates who are celebrating their third year sponsoring a Theatricks production.

Sponsorships enable Theatricks to bring in big name shows and to create the wonderful spectacle that community audiences have come to know and love about this theater. As a sponsor they receive an opportunity to have a private performance of their show and mention in all advertising distributed about the show or season. For their private performance, the sponsor can invite as many clients, customers, or friends that the auditorium will hold and have a reception of food and drinks served before the play or at intermission.

Theatricks was fortunate to have Janet Lafoy of State National Mortgage sponsor Theatricks opening night receptions, and the Ailshire family to host one as well.

To all of these people we say "thanks", and hope that they will consider being a sponsor again. Theatricks is currently looking for sponsors for their 2006-2007 season which begins in September. If you are interested or know someone who might be interested in sponsoring let Theatricks Director Webster Crocker know soon before next season's slots are all filled up. Webster Crocker can be contacted by phone at (903) 893-8525 or by email.

"Preparing a Great Audition" Spring Workshop

Theatricks will be offering something new this spring, a vocal workshop taught by Cheryl Lewis. Cheryl Lewis has enjoyed working as a chorus director for Theatricks' recent productions of Seussical and Beauty and the Beast. This spring Cheryl will teach a two-week workshop for students in grades 5th -8th on "Preparing a Great Audition". The workshop will meet on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 4:00 to 5:00pm the weeks of March 20 and March 27.

Students in the workshop will learn:

  • The Basic rules for free and healthy voice production
  • How to choose an audition song that is right for you.
  • What to avoid at auditions.
  • How to "sell" your song and yourself.
  • Tips on handling pre-audition nerves.
  • How to project a great attitude.
  • What directors are really looking for, and how (and why) certain casts are chosen.

Before the end of the workshop, Cheryl will help each participant select and start the preparation on a musical number for upcoming auditions.
