Eight students are needed to play the parts of witnesses in three mock trials at the Law School. The time spent will count as service hours and it will be fun. Participants will be asked to play an assigned part as law students question you in a mock trial. You will be given a testimony, which does not have to memorized. Instead, you simply need to know it fairly well and then answer questions. It will take between an hour and about an hour and a half each evening, depending on how quickly they can get to your part and how many questions you get asked. The mock trials are set for Thursday evenings: March 27, April 3 and April 10. Men and women are both needed.
For non-departmental auditions, see auditions in the area.
Timpanogos Storytelling Institute’s Conference
The Timpanogos Storytelling Institute’s Conference will be held on March 13-15 at the Provo Marriott Hotel and Conference Center. There will be three tellers of national renown to tell and Q & A with students during the Mask Club time slots on Thursday, March 13. Below are the tellers who will be participating in the conference:
Kevin Kling 1:00: (from his website) ”Kevin Kling is part funny guy, part poet and playwright, part wise man. Born with a disabled left arm, he lost the use of his right one after a motorcycle accident nearly killed him. He shares his special angle on life’s humor and its ruptures — and why we turn loss into story.” You may have heard him on NPR’s All Things Considered or seen some of his nationally produced plays.
Donna Ingham 2:00: A champion Texas liar, Donna is also a semi-retired English professor, author, and teller of tall and true tales in her unmistakeable drawl. This award-winning teller has kept a busy professional career going since 1995.
Andy Offut Irwin 4:00: Andy’s muse is his eighty five year old widowed newly minted physician aunt, Dr. Marguerite Van Camp. Andy is in demand at all the major festivals, and is a perennial favorite at Timpfest for his wacky sense of humor, which very nearly, but never completely, overshadows the poignant truths in his storytelling and music.
