Auditions Announced for THE LAND OF OZ at InBocca Performance

IBP_logoAnnouncing InBocca Performance’s summer show, THE LAND OF OZ. Join the wild characters of L. Frank Baum’s Oz books to discover the meaning of home, heart, and friendship. Sometimes we have to leave in order to discover just who we are.

This year we are doing something new and exciting! We are creating an alumni collaboration show–meaning this production is open to both grades 3-12 AND any person who has performed with InBocca’s summer shows in the past. We are so excited to make this happen and are PUMPED at the idea of seeing some familiar faces this summer, maybe some we haven’t seen in a long time!

We will be holding auditions for our summer production on March 30th, 2019, from 10am-2pm, at the Village Players of Fort Thomas, KY. Details are as follows:

Date: March 30th, 2019
Place: 8 N. Ft. Thomas Ave., Ft. Thomas, KY UPSTAIRS DOOR
Time: 10am-2pm

We are looking for dancers, movers, singers, and actors. We will have separate dance auditions (for serious dancers, not movers) on site at 10am, while others do cold readings and devised, collaborative work in a different space. No need to prepare anything; come dressed comfortably for movement.

In order to accommodate college students and adults, we will be having two rehearsals a week (Tuesday and Thursday) that take place in the evenings so that those who work a day job may participate. So, the schedule will look like this:

M, W, F: 9am-2pm high schoolers and elementary schoolers
Tu/Th: 6pm-9pm College Students and Adults
Saturdays: 9am-12noon Dance

The production will take place Aug. 1st-4th, with two shows on the 3rd. Rehearsals will begin July 8th.

The cost of camp for grades 3-12 is $200 per child. For anyone who might struggle with this cost, please contact us directly; we never want a child to not be able to perform because of financial reasons. For precisely this reason, we are also giving the option of a ‘Cost of Living’ Tuition, where we will happily accept tuition from $200-500 depending on a family’s means and desire to help support students who may need scholarship. It is our desire to pay the adults who work with us a decent wage, and sadly this has not been possible with the fees we have charged in the past. If you are able to give more, please consider it, but do not think it a requirement.

College students and adults do not need to pay a fee, but may be asked to help with young people during rehearsals/shows.

**PLEASE NOTE: We know that Fort Thomas Schools start spring break on March 29th. Unfortunately, the 30th was the best date for our schedule. Please email us re: video auditions.

SWING! Runs March 30-April 14

tc_swing logoSWING!
The Carnegie
March 30-April 14
[Covington]

Directed & choreographed by Tracey Bonner
Music directed by Xan Jeffrey
Featuring the RL Little Big Band with band leader Randy Linville

Cast: Sarah Viola, Bethany Xan Jeffery, R. DeAndre Smith, Dave Wilson, John Woll, Renee Stoltzfus, Trase Milburn, Franchesca Montazemi, Collin Newton & Grace Vetter

High energy beats and fast-paced dance moves are hallmarks of swing music, which exploded out of pre-war Harlem’s hotbed of youth culture and became a worldwide phenomenon. The genre crossed racial and cultural barriers to bring us popular dances like the Lindy Hop, the Jive, and more. SWING! celebrates this remarkable diversity to the beat of the most exhilarating songs of the period. But as this enthralling song-and-dance show makes abundantly clear, swing was never a time or place – it has always been a state of mind.

  • Sat, March 30 at 7:30pm
  • Sun, March 31 at 3pm
  • Fri-Sat, April 5-6 at 7:30pm
  • Sun, April 7 at 3pm
  • Fri-Sat, April 12-13 at 7:30pm
  • Sun, April 14 at 3pm
