LOFTE COMMUNITY THEATRE AUDITIONS
The Lofte Community Theatre near Manley will hold auditions for “Leaving Iowa” on January 31 and February 1 at 7pm. The production requires three men and three women. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. The production will be directed by Kevin Colbert of Weeping Water.
“Leaving Iowa” is the story of Don Browning, a middle-aged writer who decides it is finally time to take his father’s ashes to his childhood home. But when Don discovers that Grandma’s house is now a grocery store, he begins traveling across Iowa searching for a proper resting place for his father. The father-and-son road trip shifts smoothly from the present to Don’s memories of the annual tortuous vacations of his childhood.
The production will serve as the Lofte’s entry in the upcoming Nebraska Association of Community Theaters competition March 18-20. It will also be the 2011 season opener for the Lofte with performance dates on May 28, 29, June 3-5 and 9-12.
Those with questions in regards to the production should contact Lofte Artistic Director Kevin Colbert at (402) 234-2553.
GREENBLATT & SEAY SCHEDULE
Registration is now open for the 2011 Schoolhouse Fiddle Camps, in the Old Avoca Schoolhouse, in Avoca, Nebraska. Deborah Greenblatt, championship fiddler, author of many fiddle collections, will help the campers get in touch with their inner fiddler. The course of study during the Schoolhouse Fiddle Camps will be designed specifically for the individual campers who sign up.
Fiddle Camp for Beginners is Monday, June 13 - Friday, June 17. This 5 day camp includes some of the basics and fun of fiddling, such as performing in public, practice techniques, reading music, playing y ear, and jamming. Fiddling styles include bluegrass, Cajun, Irish, Klezmer, old-time, and newly composed tunes by the campers. Movement and singing are included in the experience.
Fiddle Camp for Intermediate/Advanced Fiddlers is Monday, July 11 - Friday, July 15. Campers will discuss picking tunes for contests, performing in public, practice techniques, reading music, playing by ear, playing for dancers, back-up fiddling, arranging twin fiddle pieces , and jamming. Many fiddling styles will be represented, including original compositions by the campers. Campers can sign up for all 5 days, or just 2 days, or just one day of Intermediate camp.
Monday & Tuesday is for reading fiddlers/violinists who want to read more tunes. This mini-camp is perfect for fiddlers who want to improve their music reading skills, and for classically trained violinists, violists, and cellists who are interested in various fiddling styles. Using sheet music in standard notation, these campers will get to improve their sight reading, and experience the fun of playing fiddle tunes at the same time! Fiddling styles included in the sessions will be tailored to the interest of the campers who register.
Wednesday & Thursday is for fiddlers/violinists who want to learn tunes by ear. This mini-camp is designed to jump-start your ability to pick up tunes quickly by ear, and to make them stick! Tunes used will reflect various styles, meters, tempos, and difficulty levels.
Friday is for fiddlers who “just wanna have fun”. This mini camp includes jamming, modulating, singing, dancing, experimenting, sharing, improvising, and playing fiddle related instruments.
Each day is scheduled from 9 AM - 1 PM. Registration is available on line atwww.greenblattandseay.com.
