  • "Shine Forth” event, Friday, October 3--You are invited to consider being a performer in a theatrical/musical presentation to help celebrate the opening of the new Commons! The event will take place on Friday, October 3, and will be on the theme of “Shine Forth.” For those of you who have participated in recent shows here such as "Free to Be You and Me” or “All Kinds of People,” it will be a similar format and time commitment, with several short songs and scenes organized around a theme. Since each performer will be given a few songs/scenes to be involved in, it will not require a great deal of time to rehearse. People can also be “on book,” so that memorization is not required. If you are interested in being involved, please contact Mark Kurtz or call 402-556-6262, ext. 1021 to schedule an "audition" time. This “audition” will be more of a chance for you to express your interest and ideas, and not so much of a “judging” session; we will be very open about including all ages, talents, and abilities. Audition dates are Wednesday, August 27, 6:00-8:00pm, and Thursday, August 28, 6:00-7:30pm. If you cannot make either time, a special time can be arranged for you. If you are interested in doing a singing part, please prepare a song excerpt (no more than one minute-not necessarily the song you will do for the eventual performance). For speaking parts, we will have something to give you to read. We look forward to hearing from you!
  • Call for Artists! In celebration of The Commons space at First Church, we invite you to submit a piece of artwork which will explore the deep relationship of the artist, their creativity, and their artistic expression of our theme--SHINE FORTH! The art will be displayed at the COMMUNITY CELEBRATION in The Commons on October 3 (and through the month of October). The Celebration will feature the juried art and Open House at 6:00pm, followed by a theatrical/musical presentation of the same theme at 7:00pm. E-mail Carolyn Anderson for a Call for Art form at carolyn.o.anderson@gmail.com.
