Children's Theatre at UW-Marinette has offered opportunities to be a part of a live theatrical production to hundreds of children since 1993. Currently, Children's Theatre presents a musical in October and a non-musical production in February.
Auditions for Children's Theatre Productions are open to students ages 6-18. For musicals students auditioning are asked to prepare a song that is 1 minute or less from a musical (please bring piano sheet music along with so that you may be accompanied by the musical director on the piano), be prepared to learn a dance combination and participate in a cold reading from the script.
For straight plays, auditionees are asked to perform a memorized monologue or poem as well as be ready to participate in a few improvisational games and read from the provided script.
Throughout the year, families, organizations and businesses have contributed to the success of this popular program in many ways including:
- Sponsoring shows through monetary contributions in exchange for program advertisements or "Above the Title" sponsorships.
- Providing scholarships for actors.
- Volunteering to build sets, run lights, make costumes and other activities.
- Donating goods or services for use in productions.
