Come support ACT and see a fantastic show!
TEEN “CHARLEY’S AUNT” CAMP
June 10-21 is a two-week INTENSIVE COMEDY CAMP with this 200 year old play as the focus. This show is VERY funny and tests the boundaries of comic timing. We will rehearse Monday thru Friday from 9-5 every day and at the end of the two weeks put up the show (two weekends). The cost will be $250 and we need 6 boys and 4 girls – we will double if needed but prefer not to.
Spring has sprung in full force at ACT, and our family–busy with shows, rehearsals, and helping the community–never forgets to make time for FUN! Coming up in May:
Because it was so much fun last time … we’re doing it again!
It went so well the first time, we are doing it again!
Can you can sing, play an instrment, juggle? Dance the cha-cha? Deliver stand-up comedy? Our ace Musical Director, Kathy French, can use you for this exciting sequel to the wildly successful ACT talent/variety show. We are looking for unusual acts to fill out this second time around!
There will be a cash prize for first place, along with other prizes for 2nd and 3rd. Results will be determined by cumulative audience votes over the 3 shows. There is no ticket sales requirement but remember the competition is being judged by the audience members, so you’ll want to invite all your friends to vote for you! There will be 3 required rehearsals, June 2 at 3:00 and June 5 & 6 at 7:00. These rehearsals are to put together 2 group acts–one opening and one closing plus figuring out the order of the show, logistics, and technical needs.
SHOWS: June 7, 8 at 7:00pm, June 9 at 3:30pm.
REQUIREMENTS: Contact Kathy French at firstname.lastname@example.org to join the cast. Prepare your act, come to the 3 rehearsals, and find some friends to attend!!!
