THEATRE WORKSHOP IS FULL!! Auditions at 1pm Saturday June 9 at St. John United Church of Christ

Lincoln Community Theatre will sponsor a theatre workshop during the summer of 2018 to provide a learning and performance experience for youth who will be entering Grades 2 through 9. The Workshop will be held at St. John United Church of Christ, 204 – 7th Street, Lincoln, IL. Participants entering Second Grade through Fourth Grade will attend from 9:00a.m. to 12:30p.m., Monday, June 25, through Friday, June 29. Participants entering Grade Five through Grade Nine will attend from 9:00a.m. to 4:30p.m., Monday, June 25 through Friday June 29. Both groups will enjoy a pizza party and final dress rehearsal from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. on Friday, June 29, with a performance for family and friends starting at 6:30p.m., on Friday evening. Additionally, both groups will perform on the morning of Saturday, June 30, at the ALMH Market Day held at the Logan County Fairgrounds.

Fees for the June 25 – 29 Workshops and June 29 &  30 performances include snacks and a Workshop T-shirt.

All participants will learn basic stage terms and skills and rehearse for the final performances. In order to facilitate work on these productions, those who are registered will all be asked to attend informal auditions at 1:00p.m. on Saturday, June 9, at St. John United Church of Christ. Participants will receive rehearsal materials after these auditions (music cd’s and scripts) so they can be prepared to begin rehearsals on June 25. Further details concerning schedule will be provided to registered participants at the June 9 auditions. If your child would not be available to attend these auditions, please notify LCT at time of registration to make other arrangements.

For further information, please call LCT at 217-651- 4271. Leave a message, and your call will be returned.
