What is APPRENTICE THEATRE?
Opera House will be producing 2 shows specifically for teens & young adults (ages 14-24) that focus on building skills both onstage and behind the scenes with intensive 2-3 week training & rehearsal sessions. These shows will be cast, crewed, & creatively designed by young artists!!!
Summer Apprentice Theatre Auditions
Location: The Shuffler Center; 2011 Carolina Beach Rd.
We're looking for a few more motivated young performers, ages 14-24, who are interested in taking their skills to a new level.
Apprentice Theatre shows will be cast & crewed by young performers only (rising high school freshman to college seniors). The apprenticeship program is for actors, singers, dancers, designers, & technicians who want to hone their skills. Professional performances will follow 2-3 week intensive rehearsals.
In preparation for this audition, please plan to sing 16 bars (a small section) of a song that best showcases your voice. The dance/movement portion of the audition will include tap technique.
We're also accepting technical resumes (for crew positions) at this time!
For more information please contact Opera House Theatre Company at (910) 762-4234 or OHTC Apprentice Theatre Creative Coordinator, Jason Aycock at (910) 262-0470
• Our Town (June 28-30, 2019)
Our Town is a classic piece of American theatre by playwright Thornton Wilder. It tells the story of the fictional small town of Grover's Corners between 1901 and 1913 through the everyday lives of its citizens.
Rehearsals will be 2 weeks prior to performance date.
• Thoroughly Modern Millie (July 19-21,2019)
The winner of six Tony Awards, Thoroughly Modern Millie takes you back to the height of the Jazz Age in New York City, when "moderns," including a flapper named Millie Dillmount, were bobbing their hair, entering the workforce and rewriting the rules of love. This high-spirited musical romp is a delightful valentine to the long-standing spirit of New York City and the people who seek to discover themselves there.
This 2 week workshop will help young performers learn the skills to make every audition a dynamite experience. From what to sing, how to dress, and the best way to present yourself this workshop is a must for young people hoping to learn more about the audition process and how to turn "God, I hope I get it!" into "God, I think I got it!"
Performances will be held at the end of the 2 week process in the studio theatre at Wilson Center of Cape Fear Community College.
