We are SO excited to have over fifty students involved in this year's Student Written and Directed One Acts. We decided to go with 10 writers and 10 directors. There are 37 actors (and 5 technicians!) , so each scene will have 3 or 4 characters. We tried to accommodate people's first choice whenever possible. If you did not get your first choice, and you are an underclassman, know that there will be more opportunities to write/direct! More information will be discussed at our Theatre Club Meeting next Wednesday 12/8. Be there!
Thank you to all who auditioned. The decisions are always tough and there are so many funny and talented kids. If your name is on this list, please come to the drama room after school on Tuesday, 10/12 for our first rehearsal. If your name is not on this list, please crew the show! It will be fun and relatively easy. Also, remember to come see the shows. Each one will be different. Thank you again.
Thespian Troupe #1159 is an honor society committed to supporting and learning about all aspects of theatre.The focus of this group is on both artistic and technical theatre education, and students are required to be actively involved in GBN productions. Troupe activities include field trips to neighboring high school shows and professional theatres downtown, and attending the Illinois High School Theatre Festival in January.
Membership into the troupe is restricted to inducted members, but there are a variety of events throughout the year that are sponsored by the troupe and open to all students. In order to be inducted, students must acquire ten points for their participation in productions or activities, and meet the induction criteria. The induction ceremony takes place in May. Active thespians are expected to remain in good standing with the troupe, which includes attending as many meetings as possible and all but two (2) workshops throughout the year.
The Theatre Board consists of four student leaders from the Thespian Troupe. These leaders decide on the troupe schedule, meeting events, and dues. In order to be eligible for Theatre Board, a student must be either a junior or a senior who is an active member of the thespian troupe. Interested students must apply by April 15. The new board is announced at the Theatre Banquet.
