CAPE GAZETYE - Friday, September I - Monday, September 4, 2006. 149 Clear Space auditioning for New Works Festival, 'Scrooge!' Clear Space Productions is holding auditions for two large, upcoming projects. Approximately 30 actor/singers are needed for the New Works Festival. Book writers, lyricists and composers from across the United States have submit- ted work to be considered for this festival. The auditions will take place from 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Sept. 23, at Cape SKRZESZ Henlopen High School Little Theatre. Friday, November 17 at 7:00 p.m. There will be a concert of Songs that Tell a Story, new songs for cabaret or musical theatre, at 7 p.m., Friday, Nov. 17. The follow- ing day, Saturday, Nov. 18, at 2 p.m. Short Plays and Musicals will be presented and that evening at 7 p.m., Clear Space will present Full Length Musical, a hilarious musical comedy based on Sherlock Holmes. The directors are interested in using as many local performers as possible. All three performances are staged readings, meaning that actors will sit on stools, behind music stands that hold the script and score of what is being per- formed. Each performance will be supported by a pianist, sound technician, stage manager and lighting designer. This festival is about hearing the work in voices, sometimes for the very In'st time, therefore elaborate production ele- ments or staging would only detract from that experience. All rehearsals happen within one week and rehearsal CDs will be available so that all actors can learn music prior to the fh"St meet- ing. Clear Space Productions is also looking for a cast of 25 children, teenagers, adults, ghosts - both friendly and frightening - for the second annual production of Scrooge! a new musical adapta- tion of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," written by artis- tic directors Ken Skrzesz and Doug Yetter. A cast of 25 is needed for this spectacular ghost story. Rehearsals are Wednesday and Friday evenings and Saturday mornings throughout October and November. Two performances will be given Tuesday, Dec. 5, at the Schwartz Center followed by six at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center Thursday through Sunday, Dec. 7-10, with both student matinee and evening performances for the general pub- lic. Both productions will be direct- Ballroom program returns Sept. 7 to First State Academy of Dance Ballroom dance classes are being offered once again at the First State Academy of Dance (FSAD) in Milford beginning Thursday, Sept. 7. Maria Fry, a faculty member at FSAD, revived the ballroom program last year with two three-month sessions " and a summer three-week mini- session. The program will be expanded this year. "Our first three-month course offers a beginner curriculum, but is also good for a refresher course for people who have been away from ballroom for a long time," said Fry. "Then we're planning on offering an intermediate level when our January session starts so people can build on what they've learned." The hour-long classes, which will be held Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m., take participants through a variety of types of ball- room dancing. Participants will learn the basic steps of the fox trot, cha-cha, rumba, swing, and tango. "The greatest thing about our ballroom classes is that they are designed for social dancing as opposed to competition dancing," said Michele Xiques Torgerson, owner of FSAD. "We offer a relaxed environment for people to learn at a comfortable pace." The fee for the program is $150 for a couple and $80 for an indi- vidual. The program culminates in a dance party Friday, Nov. 17, where participants can practice all of the steps they've learned. Fry's course curriculum is a col- laboration of techniques she's developed over the 26 years she's been training dancers combined with the basic ballroom syllabus from Dance Masters of America. She is also available to teach pri- vate lessons to couples who are preparing for a wedding or special event. For more information on ball- room classes, call Michele Xiques Torgerson at 422-2633, or email her at Marvel Carriage Show set for Sept. 16 The Georgetown Historical Society will host its annual Marvel Carriage Museum Carriage Show at 10 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 16, with champi- onships and reserves in three divi- sions: pony, horse and pair.
