The three goats from the traveling show THE THREE BILLY GOATS GRUFF ponder the grants received so far for Project Theatre.

Project Theatre Receives Grants

The Sherman Community Players/Theatricks has recently received some grants to help fund the educational outreach program, Project Theatre, for 2007-2008.

The grants received were $5,000 from the Sherman Council for the Arts and Humanities (SCAH), $3,000 from Texas Instruments, $3,000 from the Thelma Braun and Bocklett Family Foundation, $2,000 from the Regensburger Foundation, and $2,000 from the Procter and Gamble Foundation.

This money has already helped to provide for Theatricks touring show THE THREE BILLY GOATS GRUFF to visit area schools in Sherman, Denison, Bonham, S&S, and Van Alstyne including introducing theatre to some classes for special education students. Theatricks has also introduced 1,200 3rd grade students to theatre through a special preview performance of THE WIZARD OF OZ, as well as taken a part with an after school drama program at the Howe Public Library, and assisting with the construction of the set for Sherman High School’s production of CINDERELLA.

Project Theatre is an 18 year old program that has touched the lives of over 40,000 students last year alone, and continues to do so through the generous funding from these various foundations and corporations, and for that Theatricks wishes to say, "Thank You!"


Supporting Cast to Prepare Monologues for Presentation

At the October Supporting Cast meeting, Jeri Smith taught members the proper way to pick and deliver a monologue. Now is the time for members to be finding their monologues which will be presented in front of Jeri Smith and other judges to gain feedback.

Supporting Cast member Kathryn Hanson delivers her monologue line during the monologue workshop taught by Jeri Smith.

Members will need to bring their monologues that they have selected to the December 13 Supporting Cast meeting, and to work on it over the holidays for presentation at the January 10 meeting of the Supporting Cast. Both meetings will start at 6 p.m. in the Honey McGee Playhouse.

Also, members are asked to help Theatricks Director Webster Crocker on selecting play requests for the 2008-2009 season.

ANNE OF GREEN GABLES to Highlight New Costumers

Theatricks production of ANNE OF GREEN GABLES will feature new costumers: Brenda Bowling and her daughter Kristin, and Melissa Leanch and her daughter Elizabeth.

All four costumers were assistants to long time costumers Tammi Daubenspeck and Betty Harper during THE WIZARD OF OZ, but this will be their first opportunity to be in charge for the Theatricks program. "I thInk it is great that mother and daughter can work together as a team in the effort to costume this production, and I am very thankful to them for volunteering," says Webster Crocker Theatricks Director. "This is the opportunity that our theatre likes to provide for family members to learn and take part together--that is what makes this program work so well."

Auditions for ANNE OF GREEN GABLES will be Monday and Tuesday, January 28 and 29, 2008 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in the Honey McGee Playhouse. Performances will be held Feb. 29 and March 7, 2008 at 7 p.m., and March 1, 2, 8, and 9, 2008 at 2 p.m.
