Tap Dancing Workshop Begins Wednesday

Tap your way into Stock­ton Civic Theatre’s pro­duc­tion of 42ND STREET, directed by Jim Cole­man! Audi­tions for the show are March 27–28, and per­for­mance dates are June 29-July 24, 2011. If you haven’t seen 42ND STREET, rent the movie, and you’ll see how vital great tap danc­ing is to the show.
Con­se­quently, SCT, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Elaine Orimo’s Stock­ton Bal­let School, is offer­ing a 6 week tap work­shop for those inter­ested in audi­tion­ing. The chore­o­g­ra­pher is Eve­lyn Bar­ney, a fab­u­lous tap dancer her­self, who works for Elaine at the school. Work­shops will take place on Wednes­day evenings from 7:30–8:30. The dates for the work­shop are Feb­ru­ary 9, 16, 23 and March 2, 9 and 23. The fee is $60.00 for all 6 classes. A small num­ber of par­tial schol­ar­ships will be avail­able, but you should apply imme­di­ately. The work­shop is open to dancers and actors ages 16 and over. Some pre­vi­ous knowl­edge of tap is pre­ferred, but not manda­tory. If you don’t think you need the whole work­shop, drop-ins to classes are $15.00 per class. This offer is avail­able only to peo­ple inter­ested in audi­tion­ing for 42ND STREET. To join in the fun, call Stock­ton Civic The­atre, (209) 473‑2400.

Welcome to SCT!

Stock­ton Civic Theatre’s new blog is now acces­si­ble from our web­site home­page, or from its own URL. As in most blogs, we will use it to pub­lish news and announce­ments on a very fre­quent basis. Tar­get audi­ences are our SCT actors and vol­un­teers, but we hope this will be equally attrac­tive to patrons who have an inter­est in back­stage and front of the house hap­pen­ings. Sub­jects will include just about any­thing you can imag­ine:  short pro­files on cast and crew, up to the date audi­tions and cast announce­ments, spe­cial needs of the the­atre, fundrais­ing reports, and any state­ments that need to be posted online imme­di­ately. All it takes to be con­sid­ered for pub­li­ca­tion will be a rough draft sub­mit­ted to the News&Cues email address, avail­able on our web­site. We can eas­ily pub­lish announce­ments from the­atre man­age­ment, the Board, show direc­tors, and vol­un­teer groups. We can make pleas for helpers, pro­mote shows, and pub­li­cize spe­cial events. We can also post pho­tos, sound bites, videos, you name it. We’re really glad to be here with you, and want to help you how­ever we can!
