Theatre

The COS Theatre program is dedicated to the advancement of the theatre arts, through traditional study and performance, and to the development of new theatrical ventures. We prepare students for further study and for an ever-changing profession.

Auditions

On Tuesday, December 4 and Wednesday, December 5, the COS Theatre Department will be holding auditions for our upcoming production of "Electro-Magnetic Soul Vehicle" and our Spring production of "Antigone" in Theater Building, T4, Blackbox.

The Theatre Department encourages all actors to audition, regardless of age, ethnicity or experience level. Students may audition for either one show or both, but should plan to be there both days.

  • For a singing role in Electro-Magnetic Soul Vehicle we ask you to prepare 16 bars of a musical theatre song.
  • While not required, it is suggested that those interested in speaking roles for Antigone, prepare a short dramatic monologue.

Tuesday, December 4, 3:30 pm

Those wishing to present a song or monologue (or both!) should sign‐up for an audition slot located on the theatre call board in the Performing Arts building hallway on the COS campus.

Afterwards auditioners will read "sides" from Antigone.

Wednesday, December 5, 3:30 pm

Auditioners should be prepared for movement exercises by wearing something you can move freely in.

Electro-Magnetic Soul Vehicle

"From between the atmospheric portal, we approach you. From the inner Earth, we call. From the deepest depth of the inner ocean, we arrive, The Electromagnetic Soul Vehicle."

And with those words Dave Theno, local area musician and teacher, kicks off an epic adventure that will take us to the lost city of Telos, located deep beneath beautiful Mt. Shasta. The journey will introduce us to the legends of Telos, Atlantis, Rosalia, Adama, the greys, the lizard folk, and so much more!

Antigone

by Sophocles, In the aftermath of her brothers' bloody war, Antigone is left torn. In this ancient tale, Antigone stands for morality in spite of punishment as one of the earliest heroines in drama. Sophocles's drama from 441 BC continues to hold relevance today, examining divinity, obedience, and law – With the help of a modern Greek chorus, audiences will come to their own conclusions.
