Student auditions set for community health theatre
Jan. 7, 2011
KALAMAZOO--Auditions open to all Western Michigan University students for spring semester Theatre for Community Health productions will be held beginning at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 18, in Room 3111 of Sindecuse Health Center.
Auditions include performing a one-minute monologue or prepared autobiographical story as well as a short original song or an existing song with the lyrics re-written. Being creative and having fun are more important that acting and singing ability.
Student actors in Theatre for Community Health become trained peer educators and perform in health and wellness productions across campus. Performances are often followed by talkback sessions on the health topic covered in the production. Credit is also available from several programs for those who wish to participate.
Sponsored by the Health Promotion and Education Department of Sindecuse Health Center, TCH has produced peer education outreach productions since 1991 that tour WMU classrooms, residence halls and nearby campuses. Themes for the productions include discussion of sex and healthy relationships, the college alcohol culture and diversity issues.
