Hi everyone! Have any of you ever brought students to the American High School Theatre Festival to perform at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe? What can you tell me about your experience, and how did you find the funds to get there? I'd love to know more! Thanks for your feedback! ------------------------------ ...

Good morning, After teaching theatre for over 20 years to students from a mostly homogenous culture and exposure level, and a high interest in performing, I am now at a school teaching students who have little to no exposure to theatre, little to no interest in performing, and they all come from a ...

Rosemary, We are doing Sponge Bob in March. I was hoping the "foley" cues would be on the stage tracks, but doesn't look like it. Would you happen to know anything about this? Wondering if there's something available... ------------------------------ Cherie Ducote Firmin Mandeville High School Talented ...

Greetings all! My freshman are working on resumes and I'm trying to think of how to list the work they did on shows that never were, due to Covid. Many of them are using skills-oriented formats since Covid robbed them of other experiences. But several of them were cast and went through the rehearsal ...

We are doing little mermaid, and someone suggested using canned smoke/fog instead of fog machines. Has anyone had experience with this? I'm concerned about setting off fire alarms. Thanks in advance. Cherie Ducote Firmin Mandeville High School Talented Theatre Teacher St. Tammany Parish Public ...

Thank you so much! This has been on my list for a while now, just been waiting for the right group of actors. I appreciate your kind words, and I appreciate your contribution to the theatre. Without great work, we wouldn't be able to properly train our young performers. Best, Cherie ----------- ...

Good morning friends and colleagues, I'm in the process of choosing our shows for next season, banking on the idea that life will be normal enough for live and in-person performances at a greater capacity (masked or unmasked, I'll take it!). I'm trying to think of a show to do in the Fall that will ...

It would replace our spring musical. I just want to do something safe (want to film outside as much as possible), and something more fun than just filming a performance on stage (I just don't find those engaging, especially without editing). A shorter musical would probably be better. We are working ...

Hi guys, So, I'm finding a lot of musicals that are available to stream, but with no editing. But, do we know of any shows and publishers that are allowing for filming, editing, and streaming. I really want to create a musical film, not a filmed version of a production. Are any publishers/playwrights/shows ...

Hi everyone, I've been trying to figure out a solution for our spring musical, and I think I'd like to a make a film version, so I could work with our broadcasting dept. I was thinking something like Godspell would be perfect since it's more like vignettes, with a flexible cast, and can be filmed mostly ...

Hi all! Working on virtual monologue unit. I'm looking for student monologue videos for my students to watch, so they can see some good examples of performance, as well as learn how to critique. I'd really like them to see strong peer auditions. I would love if there was a recording of the IE/Thespy ...

Hey Erika! We do mini musicals. I give them 3 songs (or you can let them pick). They have to create a 10 minute musical with story and choreography. We talk about typical musical theatre structure. They then have to decide which song is the opening, which is the "I Want" song, the turning point, or ...
