Workshop 2019: Pacific Conservatory Theatre

PCPAPCPA is entering it’s 55th year of training actors and technicians while producing a wide range of classic and contemporary musical, and non-musical works.

Our 2019 summer season includes productions of A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, Million Dollar Quartet, The Addams Family, and the Importance of Being Earnest.

Take a look at some of the opportunities offered through PCPA this upcoming year!

2019 Summer Company: “The Central Coast’s Resident Professional Theatre Company” 

This program is for actors, singers, dancers, technicians, and designers. PCPA brings in several non-union actors and technicians to work during the summer season.

2019-2020 Internship Program: “A Link to the Professional World”

This 9 month program (September 2019 – May 2020) is for actors, technicians, designers, musical directors, directors, and dramaturgs. PCPA offers internships via its Outreach Actors Ensemble and Technical Theatre/Design programs. *All acting, musical directing, and most technical theatre/design interns receive scholarship support from PCPA.

2019-2021 Conservatory Program: “Train as a Member of a Professional Company”

This 2 year training program is for actors and technicians. You can find more details at the following website: http://www.pcpa.org. Students can earn approximately 75 units of lower-division drama credits during their two years at PCPA. Scholarships and financial aid are available for those that qualify through Allan Hancock College. Students will also benefit from the college’s relationship with many BFA programs that will accept PCPA students as juniors.



Workshop/Audition 2018 – RMSSTA

After a hiatus last year, Rocky Mountain Summer Stock Theatre Auditions is back for 2019! We just opened up registration for RMSSTA 2019 and you can register through the following website:  www.uvu.edu/rmssta.  It will be happening again at Utah Valley University in Orem, UT on Saturday, February 9, 2019 in the brand spanking new Noorda Center for the Performing Arts.

Students will have the chance to audition for multiple companies all on the same day.  Companies who have attended RMSSTA in the past include:

  • Brigham’s Playhouse,
  • Carriage House Theatre,
  • Jackson Hole Playhouse,
  • Jake’s Chaparral,
  • Lagoon Corporation,
  • Lyric Repertory Company,
  • Mack’s Inn Playhouse,
  • Missoula Children’s Theatre,
  • Pickleville Playhouse,
  • Pinecone Playhouse,
  • Post Playhouse,
  • So. Colo. Repertory Theatre,
  • Starlight Mountain Theatre,
  • Summer Rep Theatre Festival,
  • Sundance Summer Theatre,
  • Utah Festival Opera,
  • Musical Theatre, and
  • Tuacahn

Actors will still audition one by one for all of the companies in the brand new Smith Theatre in the Noorda Center for the Performing Arts at UVU. Actors planning on singing for their audition will be scheduled all together at the beginning of the day with non-singing actors scheduled for later in the day.  Companies will identify which actors they would like to see in a callback.  Actors will then schedule a time to meet with a company representative in their dedicated classroom at UVU.  Call backs will happen during the later afternoon and evening in each company’s callback space.  Companies may decide to call back actors to see them dance.  We’ll have a group dance callback later on in the afternoon. Actors can choose between a mover’s combo, an advanced dancer’s routine, and a tap routine.  The individual auditions and the dance call backs will be filmed and made available to companies immediately online and later on DVD.

Production personnel can also find work at RMSSTA.  We’ll post tech positions from each of the companies and then interested students can sign up for a time slot during their call back time in the company’s classroom.  During their appointment, students stop by for a quick interview and to give the company their resume.

The cost for all of this is only $35 for each student if they register by January 20, 2019.  Then the price jumps to $45 until January 30th, when registration closes.  All in all, it’s a phenomenal deal, compared to the Midwest Theatre Auditions at $50 and the South Eastern Theatre Conference at more than $170.  I hope you’ll encourage your students to come and make this year’s RMSSTA even bigger and better than last year’s.  Your students can register through our website: www.uvu.edu/rmssta.

If you have any questions about the audition, please don’t hesitate to contact Isaac Walters, UVU School of the Arts at the following contact opportunities: 1) 801-863-8434 or 2) isaac.walters@uvu.edu.

Event 2018: The Hive – The Bookbinder’s Tale

Once upon a time, at a Prominent University, a young woman wanted to help people see their lives as stories they tell themselves and each other. Once upon a time, at the same Prominent University, the chair of its English department, who was also the young woman’s fiancé, wanted to indulge her. Once upon a time, at (yes) a Prominent University, a cheerful and charming Italian bookbinder thought the young woman’s story and his own might become a single saga.

The Bookbinder’s Tale is a love triangle that travels in and out of its three characters’ fables, seen through one another’s eyes. Circumstances that seemed set become fluid, and futures shift with startling speed. By turns funny, breathtaking, and touching, it invites us to return to Story – our oldest and best home. Suitable for all audiences, but is recommended for ages 16+. The lead is BYU Acting graduate Mariah Bowles. Go ahead and support her in the show’s final weekend at the Hive. For more information about showtimes and tickets, click here.
