Prairie Fire Children's Theatre Company - Pinocchio Acting Residency
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!
For youth ages 7-16
Prairie Fire is a 5 day acting / performing residency for youth ages 7-16. The experience begins with an audition on Monday of the camp week. All youth who register are guaranteed an acting role. The audition is a tool to determine the part most suited for the age / experience of the student actor. Youth are cast in both lead and ensemble roles. Prairie Fire Shows are musicals with singing and dancing!
The show week schedule is based on the role the actor is cast in.
Regular rehearsals for PINOCCHIO will run from 12:30 - 4:30 pm at Mankato East Sr High (Auditorium)
Monday - (Auditions) Some actors will be dismissed after the audition (auditions last about 2 hours) - your student may call you for pick up after auditions. If your student does not have a phone, one will be provided to make a call. Lead roles will begin rehearsal. If your child needs to stay at school until you can pick up, send a snack and something quiet to work on until an adult can pick up. Rehearsals close daily at 4:30 pm, so parents / guardians should plan their schedule accordingly.
Tuesday - A (paper) letter will be sent home with your actor on Monday that explains the Tuesday schedule. With as many as 70-80 youth cast in PF Shows, the Directors teach each "group" or ensemble separately. So a student may be assigned a 1.5 -2 hour window (during the 4 hour rehearsal) on Tuesday as their specific rehearsal time. Again, if your schedule requires that you drop off at 12:30 and pick up at 4:30 pm, please make sure your student comes with something quiet to keep them occupied until their rehearsal. We will also REQUIRE that students remain in the auditorium or on the snack tables outside the auditorium until they are picked up.
Wednesday - EVERYONE rehearses for the FULL 4 hours on Wednesday (including TECH Crew).
Thursday - EVERYONE rehearses for the FULL 4 hours on Thursday (including TECH Crew)
Friday - Report time is still tentative (specific report time will be specified on the Monday rehearsal letter sent home to parents). We anticipate students will report at 1:00 pm for a full dress rehearsal.
Show Times - 5:00 & 7:30 pm on Friday of the show week
Ticket Prices - $5 per person (children, adults, seniors). We do not have senior discounts.
BOGO - If you attend the first show (for $5), you are invited to attend the 2nd show at NO COST. If you attend only 1 show, the price is $5 person. Tickets are ONLY available at the door (30 minutes prior to each performance)
We use a paperless system. We will stamp your hand, so you can come to the next show FREE of charge.
Our MAPS Auditoriums are air conditioned. See you at the show.
