MDT Cabaret Fall 2018

Once each semester, MDT students have the opportunity to perform solo and small group performances in a cabaret setting at “The Wall” in the Wilkinson Student Center. “The Wall” is a popular night spot with food and beverage service in a relaxed atmosphere. Students are responsible for selecting and rehearsing their own material presented in this informal setting. Join us on Friday, November 16 at 8pm to enjoy their work!

Workshop/Audition 2019 – RMSSTA

After a hiatus last year, Rocky Mountain Summer Stock Theatre Auditions is back for 2019! We just opened up registration for RMSSTA 2019 and you can register through our website:  www.uvu.edu/rmssta.  It will be happening again at Utah Valley University in Orem, UT on Saturday, February 9, 2019 in the brand spanking new Noorda Center for the Performing Arts.

Students will have the chance to audition for multiple companies all on the same day.  Companies who have attended RMSSTA in the past include Brigham’s Playhouse, Carriage House Theatre, Jackson Hole Playhouse, Jake’s Chaparral, Lagoon Corporation, Lyric Repertory Company, Mack’s Inn Playhouse, Missoula Children’s Theatre, Pickleville Playhouse, Pinecone Playhouse, Post Playhouse, So. Colo. Repertory Theatre, Starlight Mountain Theatre, Summer Rep Theatre Festival, Sundance Summer Theatre, Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre, and Tuacahn.

Actors will still audition one by one for all of the companies in the brand new Smith Theatre in the Noorda Center for the Performing Arts at UVU.  Actors planning on singing for their audition will be scheduled all together at the beginning of the day with non-singing actors scheduled for later in the day.  Companies will identify which actors they would like to see in a callback.  Actors will then schedule a time to meet with a company representative in their dedicated classroom at UVU.  Call backs will happen during the later afternoon and evening in each company’s callback space.  Companies may decide to call back actors to see them dance.  We’ll have a group dance callback later on in the afternoon. Actors can choose between a mover’s combo, an advanced dancer’s routine, and a tap routine.  The individual auditions and the dance call backs will be filmed and made available to companies immediately online and later on DVD.

Production personnel can also find work at RMSSTA.  We’ll post tech positions from each of the companies and then interested students can sign up for a time slot during their call back time in the company’s classroom.  During their appointment, students stop by for a quick interview and to give the company their resume.

The cost for all of this is only $35 for each student if they register by January 20th.  Then the price jumps to $45 until January 30th, when registration closes.  All in all, it’s a phenomenal deal, compared to the Midwest Theatre Auditions at $50 and the South Eastern Theatre Conference at more than $170.  I hope you’ll encourage your students to come and make this year’s RMSSTA even bigger and better than last year’s.  Your students can register through our website: www.uvu.edu/rmssta.

If you have any questions about the audition, please don’t hesitate to contact Isaac Walters, UVU School of the Arts at the following contact opportunities: 1) 801-863-8434 or 2) isaac.walters@uvu.edu.
