FALL 2020 PRODUCTION INFORMATION

AUDITION

FAITHFALL by Thomas Michael Campbell

We are casting the roles of Whitney and Father Michael in the original play Faithfall by Thomas Michael Campbell for an online production of the play this semester.

Sister Catherine has taken her own life. Following the funeral, her biological sister, Whitney, waits to claim the personal items bequeathed to the family. Whitney is met by Father Michael, the Priest and friend who worked with Sister Catherine. What starts as Whitney’s simple request turns into a heated confrontation about forgiveness, grief, faith, and the status of Sister Catherine’s soul.

To audition, please upload to TEAMS

1). a completed audition form and

2). a video of yourself performing one of the monologues (available below) from the play.

Theatre and Dance- June 1, 2020

Greetings !

The Spring 2020 semester was full of surprises, challenges, and change. Our routines were disrupted, classes were transformed by AD (alternative delivery,) and productions were suddenly stopped mid-process. The formalities that mark the ending of semester and school year, and for some, the successful completion of their degree, were sorely missed.

A long-standing tradition of the UWGB Theatre and Dance Program has been Coarse Awards, a celebration of accomplishments, served up with with creative diversions and a “light meal,” by the good people of Alternate Theatre. We watch a slide-show of production photos and spontaneous shots of students in their natural habitats, celebrate our graduating class, and recognize student accomplishments with awards and scholarships.

On behalf of the faculty and staff of UWGB Theatre and Dance, I am pleased to present the Theatre Awards for 2020. The recipients names will be added to the plaques in the University Theatre Lobby.

Excellence in Production ………………………………. Hayden Barlass

Excellence in Performance ……………………………………. Faith Klick

Excellence in Dramaturgy/ Playwriting ……….. Alyssa Hannam

Outstanding Theatre Students … Faith Klick and Chay Schmitt

Congratulations!

As our plans for the ’20-’21 academic year and production season develop, I will be posting updates. Stay in touch, let us know what you’re doing, stay safe and healthy.

We’ll leave a light on for you!
