Volunteers Needed: Timberline – National Youth Leadership Training
Calling all adults!! Want to be a part of something great? Join us this year at Timberline, a National Youth Leadership Training course for boys 12 to 18. This is one of the best programs to help young men learn how to lead their priesthood quorums or troop at home. Many of these young men come home with a new vision for their life. We’re looking for adults that are willing to help these young men learn to be leaders. Our main requirement is to be ready to have fun. We’ll teach you everything you need to know. Let us know if you’re interested! We’ll answer all your questions. Fill out this simple form to get started.

Theatre Aspen Summer Apprentice Program
The Theatre Aspen summer apprentice program is currently accepting applications. The 13-week program is available to anyone in school or who has recently graduated, and offers a perfect bridge from study to ‘real world’ application with 15 positions available. The program is free, and includes travel and housing, plus a meal stipend. The program is especially seeking apprentices interested in theatre education, for two positions. Graham Northrup, the Director of Education, is a BYU alum, and so there is a special interest in recruiting from our institution. Applications accepted beginning January 1, 2017, due by February 28th, 2017. Download the program description here.

Rocky Mountain Summer Stock Theatre Auditions  – Change of Date
KCACTF Region 8 has changed the dates for their 2017 festival, moving it back a week so that it now conflicts with the original date for RMSSTA 2017 on February 18th. Region 8 includes Utah, Arizona, Southern Nevada, and Southern California and the theatre programs in the region, particularly Utah, are extremely active in the festival. That means that the bulk of the best actors and technicians who would have come to RMSSTA are now most likely going to be in Arizona that weekend. For that reason, I’ve moved the date for RMSSTA 2017 up a week to Saturday, February 11th. Registration deadlines will also move back a week with early bird registration ending on January 22nd and final registration ending on February 5th. The change in date means that this year we now fall between the Unified Professional Theatre Auditions in Memphis on the first weekend in February and the Midwest Theatre Auditions in St. Louis during the third weekend in February, two of the largest and most respected group auditions in the country that RMSSTA is modeled on. Hopefully that means that companies who wanted to come to RMSSTA but had already committed to attend other auditions will be free to come to Orem this year. You can still register through our WEBSITE.
