Cinderella Audition Prep Workshop | Grades 3-12

Saturday, September 10 | 2:00-3:00 PM | Chelsea LaCourse | $25
Saturday, September 10 | 3:00-4:00 PM | Chelsea LaCourse | $25

Maybe this is your first musical audition, or you just need some individual coaching for your song, or you have never sung solo in front of other people?  This workshop will help you prepare for the CINDERELLA auditions on September 16 or 17 for grades 3 and up.

The Musical Director of the show will review your song with you (and if even finding a song and the sheet music is new, we’ll send you a couple of options to choose from in your reminder email). Ahead of the actual workshop we’ll send you (and your grown-up) some info about what to expect at a MainStage audition, the song options (if you don’t have one of your own), info about how to purchase sheet music in your key if you’d rather sing different song, how to prepare your music for an accompanist, what to expect on the day of the audition, and more.

At the workshop, you’ll receive individual coaching with your music from the Music Director of CINDERELLA, Chelsea LaCourse, and have a chance to sing your song in front of your classmates as well as be shown how the audition will run. After your workshop, you’ll receive a video link from the Director of CINDERELLA, Matt Giles, about what he’s looking for in terms of casting options as well as any specific information you may need. We know auditions can be frightening and we know not all parents are experienced with how auditions run, so we’re here to help.

If you’re in need of a date night downtown or maybe just some grown-up time to stream your own movie or get uninterrupted work done, just drop the kids off at the South Carolina Children’s Theatre and let them enjoy a fun evening of their own! We’ll start the night with drama activities for a wide range of ages and experience levels, and then we’ll play crafts, enjoy a snack of milk and cookies* and snuggle down for the evening to watch a movie. Make sure they have their favorite blankets and pillows-we hope to have them in sleepy-mode by the time you pick them up.

*Standard supermarket cookies and regular milk will be provided.  Please supply your own snack if food allergies are a concern.

These morning workshops are meant to engage the child in a group environment but are also to allow the parent some guilt free time to get their own work/appointments done. There will be no “sharing” for parents, just a bunch of socialization and interaction for the younger set.

We’ll start the morning with drama activities for a wide range of ages and experience levels, and then we’ll create something appropriate to the theme, have a picnic lunch and maybe even watch part of a movie.

**Please provide a nut-free snack and beverage as well as a packed lunch for your child.

These classes are more general and aren’t themed per day, but will allow for a range of ages/interests and may also include craft time. Designed to keep excited kids active and having fun. There will be no “sharing” recording for parents, just a bunch of socialization and interaction for the younger set.

Adult Acting

Sunday, Sept 11-Nov 20 | late afternoon/evening | Betsy Bisson | Free

For those of you who are interested, we provide free acting classes for adults—college-age and up.  Offered at no cost, but if you have time to put up posters, count fliers, usher for us, etc—just do those things as you can — We’ll send out emails announcing our need, and if you can help, please do.

It’s a chance for beginners to seasoned actors to get together to learn more about all things theatre related as well as a chance to work on material within an ensemble of like-minded, supportive students.  Betsy Bisson is the Education Director at SCCT and has 30 + years of experience teaching acting.

If you’re a new student, you will be required to come to one of 2 orientations before being admitted into the class. The orientation will give you an idea of how the class is structured, what will be covered (and what won’t), and what the expectations of the students are. People who would like to be considered for admission should email to attend an orientation. New students will be admitted for the Fall semester pending those orientation meetings. As the class is offered free-of-charge, only students willing to commit to fairly consistent attendance should sign-up for an orientation/possible slot in the class.

We call it AA (because no one can give you grief for going to an AA meeting) and it meets on Sunday evenings pending parking lot availability in the 4-8pm range. See anticipated schedule listed below.

** CHILD CARE IS NOT OFFERED DURING ADULT ACTING CLASSES and children may not sit in the building without adult supervision. **

Mandatory Orientation – Sunday, August 21 from 5-6:30pm OR Sunday, August 28 from 5-6:30pm (If you absolutely cannot attend one of those dates, please email [email protected] and offer alternative dates/times you might be available.) TO SIGN UP – please email [email protected]  Your Name, Email address, Best Pnone # and the reason you want to take the class. Any previous history in theatre/acting? Specific goals? At the actual Orientation please be prepared to share your favorite play/musical/movie you’ve seen and why/how it impacted you. And be sure to select an orientation date to attend – Aug 21 or 28.

To be accepted into the class, you will be expected to understand and agree to our class expectations for attendance and participation and sign a Letter of Agreement.

**Returning students (students who have completed at least one semester of the class and performed in a Sharing, or SCCT Studio or Intermediate level students who are now graduates and have already learned the foundational material) must email [email protected] by August 28th to let her know you plan to return for the semester and detail what your goals are, please also include the type of material you want to work on, if you already have a scene partner lined up, and if you have already found material you would like to work on (if so, please include a pdf of picture of the material).

CLASSES – Sundays pending parking lot availability due to MainStage

If you anticipate being absent, please secure someone in the class to take notes for you and make a plan to talk to them BEFORE the next class to get those notes.
