General Meeting



Interested in getting involved in Skidmore Theater?
Join us on Wednesday, September 5th for the following events:

NEW STUDENTS WELCOME SESSION
6:30pm in the JKB Lobby
Do you love to perform, write, construct or design? The Theater Department welcomes all students to be a part of a bigger story. You don’t have to be a Theater major or minor. You don’t even have to be in a Theater course. Current Theater Dept. students & faculty welcome you to this informal (yet informative) pre-General Meeting reception. Meet and greet, get info, ask questions, and eat cookies! This is a great chance to learn how you can get involved in Skidmore Theater.

THEATER DEPARTMENT GENERAL MEETING
7pm in the JKB Mainstage
Open to everyone interested in working in the Theater and learning about the Department. If this includes you, you are strongly advised to attend this lively, welcoming and informative meeting.  You will meet the Theater faculty, staff and other students involved in theater.  Departmental requirements, courses being offered, Theater Company, and the Lab production program will be explained.  The directors of this semester’s productions will discuss their shows and casting requirements. This is where you find out about working in the Department, and how you can get involved.
*Audition sign-up happens immediately after the General Meeting in the theater lobby*

AUDITION WORKSHOP
Immediately after audition sign-up in the JKB Black Box
This is an important opportunity for anyone who has never auditioned here before to learn about how our process works. Suggestions and guidelines about appropriate procedures will be discussed.

The department actively considers gender, race, ethnic origin, actors with disabilities, and age range in the Season selection process. We always seek to have a diverse group of actors on our stages, and directors are expected to challenge assumptions about the given nature of roles in our plays.

Casting is as inclusive as possible, with consideration given to the distribution of actor-training opportunities for a diverse student body. No preference is given to actors based upon their class years, and our shows are not “pre-cast.”
