Workshops and Special Projects


I have had the honor of receiving an Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities grant award for the fall semester to produce the play “The Ice Wolf” by Joanna H. Kraus. This play revolves around a young Inuit girl who is shunned from her village for being different. When the Wood God of her land turns her into a wolf, she must choose between holding onto her emotional hurt or learning to forgive her fellow villagers. This play explores strong moral themes, such as overcoming adversity, combating social exile, and the destructiveness of discrimination.

Auditions will be held:

September 18th from 5 pm – 6 pm

September 20th from 5 pm – 6 pm

Callbacks (as necessary) September 21st from 5 pm – 6 pm

Rehearsals will run September 25th through November 16th from 5 pm – 6 pm

Performances will be November 17th and 18th

Any and all are welcome and encouraged to audition!

An audition sign-up sheet will be posted on the Theatre For Youth board across the hall from the production board. A copy of the script is linked below.  Character break-downs and a pronunciation guide will also be placed in the workroom later this week.

A Night of Reader's Theatre

Auditions for A Night of Readers Theatre will be held next Monday, September 18 2017, at 5:00 pm in room 202. Sign-ups will be posted tomorrow, September 14 2017, on the bulletin board outside of 202 and will remain there until 2:00 pm on Monday. Please have a monologue prepared for the audition. The monologue does not need to be memorized, but it should show strong choices that connect you with your character. We will be performing scripts written by fellow/former classmates in a coffee house setting. Rehearsals will be held on Sundays, from 5:00-6:30 pm. 

If you are unable to make it to the audition because of class, crew or other conflicts but would still like to audition, please contact me ASAP and we will work around it. 

Thank you,

Michael Eubanks
