Snapshot is a brand new improv opportunity at STC! Do you like to think on your feet, work with a team, and possibly make people laugh (on purpose)? Sounds like you should audition for Snapshot!
The members of Snapshot will learn and practice improv techniques for an hour and a half on Monday evenings during January-April. Beginning at the end of March, the team will present three weekend improv shows in addition to their Monday evening meetings.
A preliminary semester schedule may be found here.
Snapshot auditions will be January 3, 2022 from 7:00-8:30 pm. You will audition with a group. No need to prepare anything (…but you already assumed that, right? ;). Auditions are open to anyone ages 9-18. If you are younger than 13, previous STC experience is required.
Sign up for an audition slot here.
The participation fee for Snapshot is $110. Scholarship assistance is available.
Snapshot will be coached by Julia Feddersen.
Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled audition time to complete an audition form.
Wear comfortable clothing and closed-toe shoes that will allow you to move well.
You will audition with a small group. You will be at your audition for 40 minutes.
Important note for parent/guardians: STC adheres to a two-adult youth safety policy at all events. Because Snapshot is being coached by a solo instructor, one parent/guardian of a Snapshot member is required to attend at least one Monday night during the semester. You do not need to assist with rehearsal, you just need to be present in the theater. Feel free to bring a book or similar activity. (You may also experience some free entertainment.) A parent/guardian signup will be distributed after auditions.
A few helpful questions and answers:
Will auditions be scary?
Nope! Especially not if you already think the idea of Snapshot sounds like fun.
Do I need previous improv experience?
Previous improv experience is not required. If you’re younger than 13, you do need previous STC experience, but it does not need to be improv-related.
Will we play “Freeze?”
While we won’t necessarily rule out an occasional round of “Freeze,” Snapshot will be an opportunity to really dig into some improv games and skills you might not be as familiar with.
Can I audition for Badger/Rutherford Wolf and Snapshot?
Yes. There are two dates that may conflict slightly with Badger, but we can definitely work around that. There are no conflicts with Rutherford Wolf.
How do I apply for a scholarship?
Scholarship applications will be available 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.
