STC OnTour 2022… RUTHERFORD WOLF, by Thomas Hischak.
Rutherford is a peace-loving, gentle wolf who is also a vegetarian. He just wants to find his way to the big city, but various fairy tale characters keep raising a panic because of the bad reputation wolves have in stories! How will Rutherford ever make it out of the forest or improve his reputation?
Directed by Jobe Fee.
This program is funded in part by local option tax funds provided by the City of Ames through the Commission on the Arts (COTA).
What is STC OnTour?
The STC OnTour experience is designed to accomplish three things:
- Rehearse & perform a tour-able, one-act play.
- Bring the play to after-school programs and places like the Ames Public Library, where audience members may not otherwise experience much theater.
- Individual actor coaching on short individual or ensemble pieces, for the artistic growth of each actor and to be performed in a final showcase with the one-act at the end of the tour run.
The participation fee for “STC OnTour: Rutherford Wolf” is $120.
Scholarship aid is available, and scholarship applications will be accessible to all cast members after auditions are complete. Scholarship requests are confidential and do not affect the audition or casting process. Please do not let the participation fee keep you from auditioning.
Regarding masks: At this time, mask-wearing is required at all Story Theater Company functions.
