The All in a Day Play Festival sponsored by Dreamwell Theatre and City Circle Theatre Company will be held Friday and Saturday, January 25 and 26 at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts. This is the eighth time these two theatre companies have joined forces to sponsor this award-winning event to create and present six, 10-minute plays in just 24 hours.

On Friday evening, January 25th, six writers, six directors, and 30 actors will come together to create six original plays. Writers are randomly assigned a location, a genre, and one other dramatic detail to include in their scripts. Writers, actors, and directors brainstorm ideas and then the writers leave to create ten-minute plays by 8:00 am Saturday morning when the actors and directors receive the play.

The six original plays will be performed on Saturday, January 26 at 7:30 pm at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts—24 hours after the start of the festival. Plays and performances are adjudicated and awards will be presented for performances, plays and directors.

Tickets to the Saturday night performance are $15 and can be purchased at the door. Seating is general admission. Tickets can also be purchased in advance at coralvillearts.org or by calling 319.248.9370 or in person at the CCPA box office at 1301 5th Street and at the Coralville Recreation Center at 1506 8th Street.

AUDITIONS: The 12 Days Of Christmas Adapted for the stage by Renee Calarco

We welcome Director Sharon Falduto back for another fun-filled Young Footliters Christmas production!

 

SUMMARY

Christmas is just around the corner, and Shirley the Partridge is a bit nervous because it’s her very first time carrying out the ancient family tradition—gathering the French Hens and the Calling Birds and … oh … everyone—for the official singing of “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” With strict instructions from her mom, Grammy and Great Grammy to guard the Five Golden Rings, Shirley sets off on a quest to find the song participants. But there are some bumps in the road. The sweet and sappy Turtledoves get injured while doing their adorable mating dance. The manic and overworked Calling Birds decide to postpone Christmas until spring when shipping and fuel costs are lower. The Six Geese a-Laying have flown south to Florida for the winter, taking most of the Seven Swans a-Swimming with them. And just when things can’t possibly get any worse for Shirley, the evil Christmas Hoarder steals the Five Golden Rings, adding them to his growing holiday collection of Christmas ornaments, Hanukkah menorahs, Kwanzaa fruits, Diwali candles … and entire Thanksgiving dinners. But things begin looking up when Alyssa—a super-cool steampunk swan—befriends the grumpy Shirley and joins her on her quest. Will they be able to save Christmas? Or will they decide to break with tradition and “mix things up a little?” With fresh dialogue and vivid characters, The 12 Days of Christmas is a playful, modern interpretation of the classic Christmas song.

ANOTHER AUDITION OPPORTUNITY!

SLEEPY HOLLOW a musical tale

SUMMARY

On Halloween night, when three modern-day kids decide to trick or treat at the old “Crane House,” they are magically transported right into the middle of the classic tale of Ichabod Crane, Brom Bones, Katie Van Tassel, and – of course – the Headless Horseman! Lots of spooky and hilarious moments in this far-out time travel tale, as the three kids cope with life in 1790, goblins, and how to find their way back home.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

MODERN-DAY CHILDREN:

AMY – 12 or 13ish – nice and super-smart

CHARLIE – 14 or 15ish – bossy, a know-it-all and pushes around the other two kids

IRVING – 8 or 9ish – cute kid

SLEEPY HOLLOW CHARACTERS:

TRUDY – Woman of the town – mother of ABBEY, BEN, WASHINGTON

ICHABOD CRANE/OLD ICHABOD – Schoolmaster – tall, awkward, in love with KATIE – frightened of his own shadow

KATIE (KATRINA VAN TASSEL) – Pretty, enamored with ICHABOD, intrigued with BROM BONES – but skeptical that either one is really right for her (KATIE Can also double as DUTCH WIFE 2)

BROM BONES – 18th Century Hunk, self-indulgent, in love with KATIE and himself

DUTCH WIFE 1 – Sort of a “do-wopp” backup chorus of women caricatures of the Dutch Wives – funny

DUTCH WIFE 2 – Sort of a “do-wopp” backup chorus of women caricatures of the Dutch Wives – funny

DUTCH WIFE 3 – Sort of a “do-wopp” backup chorus of women caricatures of the Dutch Wives – funny

RUSTIC LAD 1/MODERN COP – BROM BONES loyal followers who worship him

RUSTIC LAD 2 – BROM BONES loyal followers who worship him

TIPS FOR AUDITION PREPARATION

  1. Musicnotes.com – is one good source to find sheet music. But I would not overlook talking to more experienced actors and asking them what they have used. You may well get sheet music from a sympathetic theatre friend.
  2. Make sure you are singing in the same key as the written music you give the pianist.
  3. Practice, practice, practice. It really helps to practice with a live piano but if you can’t do that, have someone make a recording for you.
  4. Have the music taped together accordian style so that the accompanist does not have to flip the page while you are singing.
  5. Find the interesting part of the song. “32 bars” means counting measures of the song.  You do not have to be exact.  Start at a comfortable spot in the song and stop at a natural ending.  You do not need to sing every verse of the song.
  6. Pick a song that fits comfortably in your vocal range. Check out the musical you are auditioning for. ( Youtube is a great asset – use it. ) Pick a song that fits that style of the musical.
  7. Remember, everyone in the audition room wants you to succeed. Warm up at home, come into the room, introduce yourself and then walk over to the accompanist and give her your music.  Talk to her about what pace you would like to take the song and when you and everyone else in the room is ready, begin!
  8. Wear comfortable clothes that you can move in and makes you feel confident. You do not have to come in costume.  Let the directors see who you are.  They can always guide you to a character they want you to play.
  9. Do not be afraid to mess up! I can not stress how much the directors want you to be successful.  If you need to start over, do not fret about it!  It happens much more often then you might guess (even with experienced actors).
  10. If you have any questions about auditioning feel free to contact Liz Tracey at etracey@coralville.org.

AUDITIONS FOR THE WORLD PREMIERE PRODUCTION OF KAZOO.

SUMMARY

Kazoo,  is the story of Wren, a 13 year old girl. She’s an average girl, living a pretty normal life. She has a mom and loves to play her kazoo. She hangs out with her two best friends, Kaylee and Lily, in a treehouse that is their sanctuary. But then everything goes wrong – her mom dies, she has to move in with her aunt, her friends don’t understand what she’s going through and she loses her beloved kazoo. But with the help of a mysterious and funny stranger, Wren embarks on a journey to find her kazoo.

Kazoo is written in a storyteller style – there are eight actors who tell the story to the audience. All eight also become a character in the story.

Magic is woven throughout the story, from ghosts to talking rabbits to dangerous pythons. It’s a really fast-paced, fun and funny story with a lot of heart.

You can learn more about Kazoo and the playwright’s vision of the show in this video.

He’s been writing plays since college.
