SCP/Theatricks Holds Auditions for ANNE OF GREEN GABLES

Theatricks Director Webster Crocker wishes to announce the auditions for ANNE OF GREEN GABLES January 28 and 29 in the Honey McGee Playhouse located at 313 W. Mulberry in Sherman, TX from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

Green Gables is the home of lovable Matthew Cuthbert and his stern sister, Marilla. They agree to adopt a boy to help with the farm work. Imagine their consternation when Anne Shirley, a girl in her teens, is sent by the orphanage by mistake! Anne touches Matthew's heart with her vivid imagination and her charitable viewpoint, but it takes time to reach the tender heart beneath Marilla's hard exterior.

ANNE OF GREEN GABLES written by L.M. Montgomery and dramatized by Joseph Robinette will be the second show of Theatricks 2007-2008 season sponsored by TexomaCare Pediatrics and will have a cast of 18 to 24. There are parts available for 6 girls, 6 women, 3 boys, 3 men, plus extras with an age range of 9 to 65. Anne Shirley needs to be played by a girl with red hair or willing to temporarily dye it red.

The audition process will consist of filling out an audition form and reading scenes from the script. No previous experience is required, and the auditions are open to anyone interested. Familiarity with the story of ANNE OF GREEN GABLES is a plus for those auditioning.

The production of ANNE OF GREEN GABLES sponsored by Outreach Health Services will be held at the Honey McGee Playhouse February 29 and March 1, 2, 7, 8, &9 2008.

Actors Needed for Travel Show JACK AND THE BEANSTALK

Jack and the Beanstalk

The hen that lays the golden eggs presents one of her precious prizes from the play JACK AND THE BEANSTALK.

Theatricks traveling show for the spring of 2008 will be JACK AND THE BEANSTALK, and Theatricks Director Webster Crocker is looking for about 6 to 7 actors to participate in it. The travel show is a major part of Theatricks educational outreach program entitled Project Theatre, and goes to area schools to perform during the school day on Thursdays beginning in February.

No experience is needed to participate, but one must be free to rehearse in the morning or afternoon weekdays in January, and especially be free to perform during the daytime on Thursdays. JACK AND THE BEANSTALK is a 30 minute participation play that can be performed in a limited stage space, and follows the classic children's fairy tale.

If you are interested, please contact Webster Crocker Theatricks Director at (903)893-8525 or by e-mail or visit the theater's website.

 

Jeri Smith

Jeri Smith delivers information on presenting monologues before the Supporting Cast.

Monologue Competition in February

Supporting Cast members will be competing in a monologue competition held Thursday, February 21 at the Honey McGee Playhouse starting at 6 p.m.

Jeri Smith, local actress, has been meeting with the Supporting Cast over the past three months and teaching them about selecting and performing monologues. The competition will bring a conclusion to her teachings, as well as give the Supporting Cast some feedback on what they have learned. The competition will be judged by three judges, and prizes will be awarded to the top monologue presenters.

The Supporting Cast normally meets on the second Thursday of every month, but due to Valentine's Day falling on the second Thursday, the meeting was moved to the third Thursday. To make the event more fun for the participants, Theatricks Director Webster Crocker, monologue instructor Jeri Smith, and Supporting Cast adult sponsors Tammi Daubenspeck and Greta Nall will all present a monologue too.

The Supporting Cast is a teen theatre group (grades 6 to 12) that teaches through hands on methods every aspect about the theatre arts. Anyone in those grades is welcome to come and participate with the Supporting Cast. Just let Theatricks Director Webster Crocker know that you are interested, and then show up for the meetings.

Project Theatre Receives Grant Money

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

The grants most recently received were $10,000 from the Clara Blackford Smith and W. Aubrey Smith Charitable Foundation, $5,000 from the Oliver Dewey Mayor Foundation, $4,000 from the W.B. Munson Foundation, and $2,000 from the Glaser Family Charitable Foundation.

This money will help to provide for Theatricks touring show JACK AND THE BEANSTALK to visit area schools, and assist schools with their theatre arts education.

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!"
