Theatricks Director Webster Crocker Finishes Stint as Austin College Professor

For those of you who may not know, Theatricks Director Webster Crocker was asked by Austin College professor Kathleen Campbell to teach a college course at Austin College this spring semester on Scene and Lighting Design which came to a close this week as the semester ends.

Webster graduated from Austin College 20 years ago, and never dreamed that he would be asked to come back to teach, but he was, and he did.

"It was a great experience for me to work closely with the college students and professors this spring, and I hope that someday I get the opportunity to do it again," states Webster. "It not only gave me a chance to help train future theatre professionals, but also a great opportunity to share the wonderful accomplishments of community theatre. I wish to my college students all of the great opportunities and experiences that I have had in my career in theatre since graduation. Break-a-leg!"

 

Theatricks to host a WIZARD OF OZ Camp July 23-26, 2007

Theatricks is excited to announce that instead of the regular summer theatre workshops, they are going to be having a WIZARD OF OZ Camp July 23, 24, 25, 26 2007 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.

The camp is based loosely on the TV show "You're the One that I Want!" for GREASE, but built around the musical THE WIZARD OF OZ since that will be Theatricks opening show for the 2007-2008 season. The camp is open to children age 4 up to 18 (Adults may sit in on class sessions if they want), and the students will be divided into three age groupings.

There will be three different class sessions that all students will take part in: Acting, Singing, and Dance/Movement. The Acting portion of the workshop will be taught by Theatricks Director Webster Crocker. The Singing portion of the workshop will be taught by Vocal Instructor Cheryl Lewis, and the Dance/Movement portion of the workshop taught by Choreographer Amy Dean. Each of these instructors have worked together for quite some time to bring to Sherman such wonderful musicals like SEUSSICAL the musical, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, and PETER PAN. This time around these instructors wanted to teach some of the musical tricks and techniques required to produce a successful musical to those who might be auditioning in the future.

The cost for this WIZARD OF OZ Camp is free!, but enrollment will be limited so if you are interested, sign up now. The Camp will be held in the Finley Cultural Center at 500 N. Elm in Sherman, TX, and will conclude Thursday night July 26 with a small revue of WIZARD OF OZ show pieces starting at 6 p.m.

Auditions for Theatricks musical production of THE WIZARD OF OZ will then be Monday and Tuesday, July 30 and 31 at 6:30 p.m. in the Finley Theatre. To enroll for the Camp go to SCP's website at www.scptheater.org for a form, or call Webster Crocker Theatricks Director at 903-893-8525.
