Readers’ Theatre Corner- October 2019
Tellico Community Players is planning a busy 2019 for readers’ theatre enthusiasts. In addition to five Main Stage productions, TCP offers opportunities in three other theatre arts projects with the Prime Time Players, TCP’s readers’ theatre troupe. The first opportunity is joining the Players in the 2019 School Tour scheduled to perform in our area elementary schools March 4-8. In addition, 2019 will boast our first production especially for children, Charlotte’s Web, scheduled for October. Finally, we are mounting a short play suitable for entertainment at social gatherings and offering it to our community just for fun!
Get started with us by joining the 2019 School Tour! This outreach project has been an annual event for the Prime Time Players since 2010. Auditioning and casting will take place the week of February 4-8 with rehearsals running Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays beginning February 11- 28 from 10:00-12 noon. Production week is March 4-8 with morning and afternoon shows at Loudon and Monroe County elementary schools. Anyone who is able to meet the attendance requirements for rehearsal and performance is invited to participate. Performing in the school setting is one of the most gratifying experiences a reader can have. The energy between the performers and the children is magic and is what keeps us coming back every year to share our love of good literature with the students. Please contact producers Dave Hudgens (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Doug Banister (email@example.com) for any further information about the School Tour 2019.
