1) The Thespians of the Western Pacific Islands (TWPI) had auditions yesterday for the Chapter Play, UP THE DOWN STAIRCASE, which will be staged in late September. Hurrahs to the two Junior Thespians from troupe #88799 who auditioned. A total of 29 students from participating schools across Saipan came to the auditions. Wow! If you're intersted, it's not too late. You can still be an extra on stage, help with the back stage workings, or lend a hand with publicity. Let me know (phone or e-mail) or identify yourself in the comments trail, here.
2) If that weren't enough, MCS Principal and Dramaturg Extraordinaire, Galvin Guerrero, has announced auditions for the annual school musical. MCS is staging THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, and hopes to have a December production. They're starting early, though, so now is the time to express your interest. Auditions are Tuesday, August 28, 2007, 3 to 5 PM at MCS and are open to all MCS students.
A note about "points."
If you are in middle school at MCS and participating in these or other performance events, let me know and I'll credit you "points" that can be accumulated toward full (inducted) membership in our troupe. You get points for attending troupe meetings, going to auditions, participating in performances, and other drama-related, troupe-related activities.
If you win a spot to go to the International Thespian Festival in Lincoln, Nebraska this summer, you must be a full member. And it takes 10 points to get full memberhip. Also, it's good to have a lot of points for the honor, and because you can transfer 10 of them toward membership in Thespians when you get to high school.
