Grand Rapids Civic Theatre

“This show was like no other. If you weren't on stage, you were back stage singing and every song had off stage singing in it. On top of that, the entire cast also played crew and did the scene changes. They were my super troopers and rose above any challenge (illness that went through the cast to picking up last minute changes) that was thrown at them. It is very rare to have such a supportive, loving cast and crew working on a show. They were more than a cast, they were a family and a excellent example of what this community theatre family is made of.”⁣

-Chris Carnevale, Stage Manager

Introducing the next member of the production team for Allendale Civic Theatre’s summer children’s production, Dorothy in Wonderland. Meet Ellie! #allendalecivictheatre

As auditions for our upcoming children’s production are approaching, we will be featuring some of the Allendale Civic Theatre volunteers. Meet Megan! #allendalecivictheatre

Auditions are just one week away! Email us at [email protected] if you have questions. 🎭

The singing session of our audition worship was led by Ellie. The group learned the song “Will We Ever See Home Again” from the show. They started with vocal warm ups and were instructed about good posture, body language and breath support. #allendalecivictheatre

Our Acting session of the audition worship was led by Jonathan. Each group took turns reading portions of the script. Fellow group members gave feedback on what they liked about the performance. They learned skills about body language, how to react to other actors lines and being confident in what they are reading. #allendalecivictheatre

Our workshop today was made up of three sessions: Dance, Vocal and Acting. Each group rotated through each 35 minute session with short breaks in between. Our dance session was led by Rebekah, Megan and Lonnie. After learning the dance, groups would split up and take turns watching each other. Cheering each other on was encouraged, as well as, giving constructive criticism. 💃🏻🕺🏻

What a great day! We had 35 attendees at our audition workshop this morning. We did group warm ups to start off, which included physical, mental and vocal exercises. 🎭 #allendalecivictheatre
