CAST Application – Summer 2017

Each week CAST will produce a show that will be staged on Friday afternoon – Script-in-Hand. On Monday morning everyone in that Session auditions for a role in that week’s show. We rehearse each day working on character development, blocking, use of props, etc. Toward the end of the week we add what sets are available, lighting, and sound. On Friday afternoon the show will be performed Script-in-Hand for an audience of family, friends, and neighborhood children. (Script-in-Hand {no need to memorize} removes a great deal of stress from the actor.)

July 24-28: Egyptian Cinderella

It originated nearly 3,000 years ago and was recorded by the Roman historian Strabo in the first century B.C.: A young Greek woman is kidnapped by pirates and sold as a slave in Egypt.  Her manners and background make her stand out, with the result that she is treated cruelly by the other servants of the household. Her only friends are the animals that live along the Nile for whom she dances and sings each evening. Her master happens upon this one evening and has golden slippers made for her. One day a hawk – the god Horus – steals a slipper and drops it into Pharaoh’s lap.  He searches the kingdom to find its owner, and when he finds her, makes her his queen.

The Tragedy of Macbeth – A brave Scottish general named Macbeth receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia. Forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion, he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of madness and death.
