Spring Play Information
ANNOUNCING AUDITIONS FOR THE SPRING PLAY ‘A COMEDY OF ERRORS’
Auditions are scheduled for March 5 and 6 starting at 3:15 pm in the Black Box theatre. No school on Monday means you have the whole day to prepare your audition monologue!
Sign up outside the Black Box theatre for a time slot. Auditions will consist of you presenting a comedic monologue from a classic play (think Shakespeare, Aristophanes, etc). If you can’t find one on your own, there are links available at https://www.backstage.com/monologues/shakespeare/ for your use.
Callbacks will take place on Wednesday, March 7 from 3:15 pm onward; be prepared to stay for the whole time if you are called back.
More information is available on the posters around school as well as from Ms Constable in W108.
Each year, Chanhassen High School offers students an intense experience for participation in the intimate experience of the one act play. A smaller cast and crew (due to rule limitations by the competition guidelines) means that students are more fully involved in the creation and technical aspects of the production. Entering both the MSHSL One-Act Play contest (beginning at the sub-section level and striving to advance to the State Festival) as well as the State Thespian Festival showcase, students in the one act are typically afforded a challenging theatrical journey investigating myriad dramatic genres, playwrights, and stylistic interpretations.
Culminating the theatre season, the Chanhassen High School Spring Production runs the gamut of broad slapstick to charming romantic comedy to Shakespeare. Utilizing the open design of the Black Box space, shows done in the Spring are open to all students, grades 9 through 12, and is the final production before the Spring Induction ceremony for the Thespian Society Troupe 7789. These plays offer students the opportunity to explore and refine their interest in the dramatic arts.

Thespian Troupe 7789
As part of the International Thespian Society, Chanhassen Troupe 7789 is an honors organization that offers students who are passionate about theater an opportunity to spend time with like-minded peers from across the state, country, and world. Besides activities throughout the year for fun and fundraising, the troupe attends the annual State Conference every February where students have two full days of workshops led by professionals from every discipline of the performing arts. Students can also participate in the Individual Events competitions, competing not only for scholarships, but the opportunity to represent Minnesota at the International Festival in June. The ITF is a weeklong theatre extravaganza that is non-stop drama, as well as non-stop fun! In past years, Chan students have achieved Superior ratings in both IE and the One Act Play Showcase.
