Information Session & Open Call: Ensemble Cast & Production Crew for fall 2021 full-production
UFV Theatre mainstage production for fall 2021 will be a full-production of various short Climate Change Theatre Action 2021 plays!
The Climate Change Theatre Action 2021 is a global distributed theatre festival, and the theme for this year is “Envisioning a Global Green New Deal”
[51 short plays written by renown playwrights for this festival]
UFV Theatre is excited to offer students the opportunity to engage with these amazing, relevant works, and create an exciting performance!
We do not yet know the format of the production [whether it will be face-to-face, online, or a hybrid], but we do know that we will be creating exciting work together as a team of cast and crew. We, as a department, commit to providing our students with the opportunity to learn acting and production skills, and work across the exciting possibilities of any format.
We invite a wide-range of students interested in creating and engaging in Climate Change Theatre to join us. You do not need to be a Theatre major or minor, or have any previous Theatre experience. For the cast, we are assembling an ensemble (a group of actors to work together), rather than auditioning for individual roles.
As with all mainstage productions, students taking part will receive academic credit for their practicum work, through one of THEA290, THEA291, THEA295, THEA299, THEA399, or THEA499.
We invite you to join us for one of our information sessions:
Thursday, April 8, 3-4pm
Tuesday, April 13, 3-4pm
To join us: follow this Zoom link. You will need to provide your full name, student ID number, and ufv email address to join the meeting from the waiting room.
