A holiday comedy in two acts
4 f/4 m
It’s Christmas, and Kevin and Allie are about to become parents- they’re just waiting for a phone call. And though they’ve asked their families to keep their distance until they bring the baby home, of course no one keeps their distance. Kevin’s father visits with his much-younger wife and their extended clan, followed by Kevin’s mother with her veterinarian, her upstairs neighbor, and her favorite author, and then Allie’s family invades, including her ultra-competitive sister, her Bubbie, and Bubbie’s gentleman friend. Eight actors play twenty-two characters in this lightning-paced holiday farce that celebrates families of all kinds.

Auditions for Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer JR

Directed by Maggie Thomas
Auditions for Rudolph are October 8th 9:00-11:00am OR 9th 4:00-6:00pm. Your child should come to one OR the other. We will cast up to 50 participants. There will be a $50 participation fee requested after casting to help us offset costs. However, we DO have scholarships available…so please don’t let that be a deterrent!
For auditions, we will sing Rockin Around the Christmas Tree. See attached – however, your participant is welcome to choose any song from the show. Here’s the link for all of the tracks.
I have also attached the character breakdown — one note on gender and casting: If the character lists a gender next to it, that is the gender that the character will be played. However, it doesn’t mean that your child should not go for whatever role they prefer! Theatre has a long and hallowed tradition of this practice. If there are questions about this, don’t hesitate to reach out!   [email protected]

Corbin Kids Company

Corbin Kids Company was established in 2011 as an answer to the lack of affordable, quality theatre camps for kids in the Liberty Area. The first year, we had 40 kids. By the third year, we sold out within three weeks of opening registration, and so decided to expand to two camps for the fourth year. This year we sold out within 2 months of open registration. We have two camp, the younger group is for kids ages 6-11, and the older camp for kids ages 12-18. We have a very dedicated staff, all of whom are volunteers, including our camp founder and director Maggie Thomas. We are able to do this camp, in part, to William Jewell College allowing us to use their facility. Camp is two weeks long from 6:00PM-9:00PM from Monday to Friday with an add on Saturday for the second week. Camp culimates in three performances, Friday night and then two on Saturday. We teach theatrical methods for the first 30-45 minutes of each night. Topics vary, but have included: STAGE MOVEMENT, CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT, TECH (sound & lights), SET DESIGN, COSTUMES DESIGN, MAKEUP, DIALECT & DIALOUGUE, STORY TELLING, IMPROV, THEATRE ROLES, and others.

Music  

  Corbin Theatre is proud to bring local and national talent to our stage monthly.  We strive to bring different instrumentation, idioms, and genres throughout the year.  Please check out our calendar and BUY TICKETS today.  We are a quaint with limited seating so we can sell out quickly.
