CHADRON – The Chadron State College theatre department will host area high school students and directors for its 27th annual Theatre Day Thursday, Oct. 5.
High school students will attend workshops ranging from stage combat to theatre games, watch CSC’s theatre department perform “Charley’s Aunt” by Brandon Thomas, and interact with the cast during a Q&A session. Students will also have the opportunity to audition for CSC theatre scholarships.
Theatre Day typically brings around 300 students from 10 to 15 high schools to campus, according to Roger Mays, CSC theatre professor. He said students from Wyoming, Nebraska, South Dakota and possibly Colorado will attend. Last year’s attendance shattered previous numbers with more than 425 students and directors.
CSC alumna, Amy Campion, is returning to host a scene painting workshop for 12 students. Campion is part of the Boulder Dinner Theatre and contributed to Theatre Day last year by helping design a set and the show’s proscenium.
