Yes! It’s finally here! The ‘oh so talented’ Caterina Primrose is finally starting her own theatre troupe! (I haven’t decided 100% on a name yet.)
Posts have been made previously about this, and with the growing excitement, I was inspired to quickly make it happen. I have so many ideas in mind.
This is NOT a guild, so you don’t have to leave one thing you love to go to another, you know?
When are auditions being held? Saturday, February 18th and Sunday, February 19th at 5:00 pm server (on both days)
OOCLY - The City Hall in the Cathedral Square
ICLY - Since it’s not really plausible for her to rent the City Hall (it is the CITY hall), it’ll just be in a building somewhere else in the city, due to the fact the city is much bigger in reality than game mechanics allow it to be.
One monologue that your character has memorized (You can obviously just pull it up online)
Your character is required to bring a prepared little piece of music to either play or sing (if you were doing it in real life it’d be no more than a minute). If your character can’t sing, DON’T worry! The troupe won’t be doing too much singing unless we all decide to do a musical. It’s just helpful to know who can and cannot bust out them vocal chordswhen we do need it. So if the monologue is good, they’ll likely be admitted in!
What sort of things would we be doing?
If your character is accepted to be part of the troupe, we’d choose a play, hold auditions, cast, have little rehearsals every few days, figure out venues, perform at other guild’s events (if we can), perform our own shows, and when we don’t have a major production going on or want to role-play something more than rehearsal - we’ll do fun skits and street improvisation!
What if my character wouldn’t perform but I’d still like to be involved?
We need Directors. This will enable your character to get their creative side rolling and portray the story how they perceived it with their artistic vision in mind. If we don’t have directors, I’ll be directing all the shows, I’d love to see other people give it a try though!
We could use Playwrights. Original work would be SO cool.
As a theatre major I can tell you that we need a LOT more than just actors. We need costume designers - yes! If you’re good at those mogs and would like to help, contact me please, omg!
We also need stage hands, people who can help us fulfill the visual special effects and help with set designing/locations. Stage hands also just generally help the actors backstage. If they need a quick change, or someone to do their makeup/hair for them, stage hands help.
We need ushers! People who will escort and interact with the audience before the show, during intermission, and after! This means you might be collecting the money at the ticket box, or relax at the concession stand as well.
If your character would want to sit back and let someone else take the reigns while they observe and learn, they can audition for the troupe as an understudy!
If your character wouldn’t be involved at all but supports it, come see the shows, sponsor them, donate clothing for costumes! It’s something that has a place for everyone in the community, and I hope to see you all there.
