The Theatre Department features a sequential curriculum that allows students to investigate the social and historical context in which they live, form aesthetic judgments, and develop the discipline of the artist. The ultimate goal is to promote appreciation of the art, as well as a more sensitive and reflective understanding of the human condition.

HOW TO PREPARE
Step 1: Research
“Corduroy” is based on the books by Don Freeman, “Corduroy” and “A Pocket for Corduroy.” You can find the original children’s books at a local library to become familiar with the characters, although a lot of dialogue and character development has been added to this new adaptation. You can find video clips of recent performances online to become familiar with the style.
Step 2: Read the entire audition packet.
Print the StageCrafters and Technical Theatre Permission Form. Have a guardian sign the form and bring it with you to your audition.
Step 3: Sign up for an audition slot.
Choose a time slot for the Tuesday auditions. Callbacks on Wednesday will be scheduled by the director and emailed Tuesday night.
Step 4: Attend the audition workshop
The workshop takes place from 3:45-5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 5 in the West Auditorium. The workshop will be an opportunity for you to meet Laura Wesslund, the director, play theatre games, learn more about the play, and ask any questions that you might have about the auditions or production. The workshop is not mandatory but encouraged.
Step 5: Fill out the audition form online.
Step 6: Attend your audition!
Bring your signed StageCrafters form. The StageCrafters form and Corduroy audition form must be filled out prior to your audition time.
