This awesome author and performer gives an account of this production and it's usage.
A musical theatre production is produced from a script and a score. These productions feature actors, costumes, props and sets. The actors audition, get cast in a role, rehearse and then conduct a public performance.
Musical theatre productions require a host of “behind-the-scene” staff including: producers, directors, musical directors, technical directors, choreographers, costume designers, costumers, stage managers, house managers, set designers, set foremen, lighting designers, sound technicians, stage hands, box office managers, box office workers, ushers and concessions workers.
The audition is a sample performance of the actor. The directors use the audition process to determine the level & range of talent, expertise and suitability for casting roles in a particular show.
The rehearsal process is a preparatory event in musical theatre that is performed before the official public performance, as a form of practice, and to ensure that all details of the performance are adequately prepared and coordinated for professional presentation.
The performance is the activity that exercises and displays the skills and talents of the performer within a troupe of other performers, which is typically performed for and opened to the public. The performance is the culminating event as a direct result of the production’s audition and rehearsal process.
As we grow, we welcome newcomers into the fold of our musical theatre family. We encourage everyone to share his or her talents, skills and efforts. Not only is this an excellent opportunity and experience for the participants and volunteers; it also builds and strengthens relationships. Further, we depend on a strong volunteer base to make it all happen. Musical Theatre is a complex and involved show to produce, so we need your help to make it the most wonderful musical theatre experience your performer has ever known.
Just to be perfectly clear, "We are committed to excellence". We cannot do it on our own, we need your talents, skills and gifting to make it the best it can be. We welcome your participation.
The Pen Inside the Inkwell Rests
The story is not over.
The novel is not done.The race has not been finished.
There is no setting sun.
The chapter is a blessed one
Filled with love and life
But like all chapters, it must end
For the next one to begin.
This book as many pages and many left to write
With your pen and your experience
Where you bring the script to life
So celebrate the chapter and close it with a smile
It's part of your story that shall go on for miles
The gifts that you have given in this chapter now complete
Is more than anyone can know;
is more than anyone can show
Embedded in the Victor's throne
invaluable gems, precious stones.
There is no time to sit and wait
Looking back upon a swinging gate
The harvest will come back to you
From the seeds you planted when
You gave the timid child his voice
When he thought he had no choice
But to stand alone in the unsung wings
Until you coaxed that voice to sing
And sing he did out brave and strong
Until he knew that he belonged
To something bigger than himself
Something he placed upon the shelf
Of every room inside his heart
He knew that he had played his part
A part that he could only do
Because of you.
The parchment is waiting on the desk
The pen inside the inkwell rests
For you with blue stain hands to hold ...
The next script waiting to be told.
Dedicated to Rocco and Kathi-lee Wilson in recognition for their transformative work in the lives of young actors at Saint Patrick Catholic School, Norfolk, Virginia
“Seven Reasons Live Theatre is Best in Person”
By Matthew Calhoun
Although live theatre is no longer a quintessential mode of entertainment, it still has its merits. It offers us a unique experience where we get to come together as a community and see a live performance. If you’re still wondering whether live theatre is best experienced in person, here are seven reasons why you should go see your next play in a live setting.
Live theatre lives and dies the night that it is performed. The show that played on Monday can be slightly different on Thursday. Why? Because it is all happening live. There are no redoes, no second chances. If a mistake is made, an actor must roll with it. If a prop is missing, a showrunner must improvise. The circumstances making it a live performance help the show be different from night to night. An audience can change the effectiveness of the play drastically. Moreover, actors can find new ways to express a character or more effective emotions for an audience. Unlike film, live theater requires that actors adapt on the fly because they never know what could go right or wrong. This makes a show authentic, even after multiple views. It’s one of many reasons live theatre can be better than movies.
One of the best parts about live theatre is the ability of an actor to use the crowd’s energy. This can make an otherwise dull character truly come alive. When an audience and an actor get in sync, comedic timing and dramatic effect work very well to sell a scene. In the end, it’s just an actor standing on stage, but the emotion, laughter, and ambiance are palpable. Whether it’s Peter Pan or Waiting for Godot, an audience’s actions can make or break a play.
Even though you’re not acting on stage, live theatre holds an incredible opportunity to make you part of the show. The actors get to feed off your energy and in turn, the show becomes better for it. Sometimes live theatre has intentionally interactive moments with the audience. This is why it is so important to go to live theater at least once. It’s an experience unlike any other that you can’t get in a movie theater. It feels as if a community is coming together under one roof.
Unlike movies, live theatre can’t hide things with a green screen. Practical sets, props, and effects are built from scratch. There is no CGI to compensate for a character not existing in real life. If you’re a fan of practical effects then you need to see live theatre. More importantly, if you’re a fan of practical makeup artistry then you should definitely go see a show. People are always surprised when they seek makeup artists to flaunt their skills in a creative way. If you are looking for creative stagecraft, shows like The Lion King is revolutionary in set and stage design.
If you want to test your skills as an actor, you don’t go to Hollywood, you go to live theatre. Live theatre gives you only one take to get the emotion and scene structure correct. You don’t have multiple takes to work up your emotions as you do in a film. It’s one shot to get it correct or nothing at all. If you want to see some truly amazing performers who can consistently evoke emotion then look to live theatre.
Live theatre has been innovating since its inception. The stage has stayed the same, but incorporating technology has vastly improved the theatre-going experience. People are making stages move, having people disappear, and creating magic, all with simple tools. You don’t have to go see the biggest blockbuster to see something that makes you go “Wow!”
Live theatre spans back thousands of years. It has always been used as a tool to contemplate society and our role within it. Theatre has a lot to offer because of that personal touch and being in the moment with that story. By going to a night of theatre, you’re doing the same thing people did thousands of years ago. There is a lot of history connected to those stages. Why not be a part of that history?
