NEW AUDITIONS FORMAT

NSTC begins its 2016 season on January 5th and 7th with open auditions (6-9pm) for would-be thespians, ages 13 and up.  NSTC wants theater to be more fun than frightening, so it has created a new approach to auditions that embraces creativity, imagination and much laughter.  Styled after some of the skits on the TV comedy “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” auditioners will be invited to join in “games” that involve 2-4 people and a situation or prompt.  For instance, in “Alphabet”, participants act out a scene with each sentence starting with successive letters of the alphabet.  In “Fashion Model”, several participants walk the runway while 2 other participants comment on their pretend fashion show outfits.  In “Hats” each participant selects a hat and then advertises him/herself as a character for a dating website.  Explore your theater talents with us or just come and let others provide the entertainment!  Participants will have the opportunity to sign up for an individual call-back for a specific part in a show.

 

NORTHERN STAR EXPANDS OPTIONS FOR KIDS

NSTC continues its tradition of presenting a “KidsOnStage” show for youth in grades three through eight.  The 2016 show is “Schoolhouse Rock Live, Jr.” which will be presented on February 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 and 28.  Auditions for the show will be held on Saturday, December 19 from 10 am to 1 pm.  Youth do not have to prepare anything, but a parent should attend auditions with the child.
During the summer, NSTC will offer theater-in–the-park camps: one for youth entering grades four through eight and one for children entering grades one through three.  Each group will prepare a melodrama that will be presented in the city park under the band shell.    Brochures will be available in March with more details about theater-in-the-park.
