Prime Time Players’
2018 School Tour Sign-Up – Friday, February 9, 10:00 AM at the TCP Playhouse
Our 2018 School Tour, entitled “Once Upon a Mountain,” features the dramatic literature and music of the artists of the Appalachian Mountains. As in years past, our theme-oriented programs are composed of both prose and poetry that our adult readers interpret in our own special way for our student audience. Since 2010, the Prime Time Players have taken our readers’ theatre productions to schools throughout the surrounding counties. Last year, we entertained enthusiastic youngsters in Loudon and Monroe County elementary schools with our program “Waldo the World Traveler.”
Everyone is welcome to join our production; no experience is necessary. In readers’ theatre, we practice the art of oral interpretation which uses voice, facial expressions, and gestures to convey the meaning of the literature being read aloud. Readers’ theatre takes much of the anxiety out of stage performance, since there are no lines to memorize and very little movement to execute.
We do ask that you commit to rehearsal and performance schedule. Rehearsals will be held at the Tellico Community Playhouse in Lakeside Plaza. Rehearsal time will run from 10:00 AM until 12:00 PM on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday beginning February 12. Productions will be scheduled for March 5-9 during school hours. Please check your calendars and make sure these times and dates are open and free of obligations. Your reliable attendance is a vital element in the success of this team effort.
PLAY ON: February 22-24, March 1-4
Set in the present - day on the stage of a local community theatre, is the hilarious story of a theatre group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps revising the script.
Act 1 is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal , and the final act is the actual performance, in which anything that can go wrong, does. When the author decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during curtain calls, the audience is treaded a madcap climax to a thoroughly hilarious romp. Even the sound effects reap their share of laughter. The play will be directed by Sue Aukerman.
