    This class, under the direction of the Art Center's Technical Theatre Director Richard Kiraly, teaches preparation and skills needed to act as Stage Manager for a show. Stage Managers are the right-hand of Directors, and are responsible for administrative duties during the rehearsal process and are in charge of a show when it is open to the public! Ages 16 and up.

    The class will coincide with the November mainstage show and may require students to be available for rehearsal and show schedules of that show. There will be both in-class time as well as hands on learning.

    QUEST FOR QUASI  

    Audition information – Arts Center of Kershaw County 
     

    When Red Riding Hood wins a date with Quasimodo, the famous Hunchback of Notre Dame, on “The Dating Game,” she has a hunch she may have found the man of her dreams.  But all this changes when the Wicked Witch of the West breaks up their date at McDonald’s and demands three items of power from Red — the sword in the stone, Captain Hook’s hook and the Blue Fairy’s wand.  Red has only 24 hours to acquire the said articles while Quasi is held hostage in the Wicked Witch’s castle.  Will Red get her hunch back? Will the Wicked Witch keep her end of the bargain? And if not, can Red and Quasi figure out a way to outwit her and end her wicked reign once and for all? Lots of humor, mad-cap action and recognizable characters inhabit this delightful, fractured fairy tale with a new twist, perfect for all ages!
