AUDITIONS IN THE AREA

Student Actors Wanted to Assist in Chaplain Counseling Classes:  Student actors needed for three separate roles (both male and female).  Each part portrays a counseling subject (client) in a military setting speaking with a Chaplain (who is a graduate student in the Pastoral Counseling Class).  The student actor portrays a specific challenge for the counseling chaplain.  We provide a script and general scenario for character development, but his will be more a guided improvisation than a memorized script.  The 45 minute sessions will be October 23, 30 and November 6,13, 27 and December 4 and 11. The time is 1:00 pm to 1:50 pm usually in room 213 in the JSB. Sessions are recorded for student and teacher review and learning, and are not published or broadcast.  If there are any persona issues with the character to be portrayed the actor may demure and opt out.  The Religious Education department pays for four hours of character development as preparation for one 45 minute session of acting.  Total is $60 per performance.  Questions?  Please contact Brother Boatright or Brother Theodore at 801-422-9174 or 3287. Please provide a resume with headshot via email. Application deadline is October 16 at 4:15 pm. 

Nursing Simulations

Wigs and props will be provided as well as a detailed role distribution and simulation objectives. Simulation dates will be November 8-9, 15-16 and 29-30. To sign up for this opportunity, please click here.
