Performances, workshops and scholars

February 14, 2017

Theatre students wrapped up January with two bills of one-act plays. The plays, which were workshopped during Inter*mester, incorporated every student in the theatre department in acting, designing or managing roles. The performances were directed by students from the fall semester’s directing class.

As February began, students entered auditions for second-semester productions. Casting is now complete for the spring-semester performances of Cardenio, A Wrinkle in Time and My Fair Lady.

Before rehearsals began for the spring productions, senior theatre majors focused on their college auditions. Senior students joined their classmates from other departments for an audition tour in Chicago. When not on the road, the seniors received coaching on audition techniques and workshopped their audition pieces.

Lastly, senior Jeremy Gill was nominated as a Presidential Scholar in the Arts. Gill is one of four Interlochen Arts Academy students nominated by the program, and the only student from the theatre department nominated. Presidential Scholars will be announced later this semester. Congratulations, Jeremy!
