https://buskirkchumley.org/technical-theatre-training/

Want to learn more about Technical Theater? Interested in putting on events but not clear on the technical terminology you’ll need? Looking to be more involved at the BCT as a union stagehand? The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is opening its free Technical Theatre Training sessions for I.A.T.S.E 618 stage hands to the general public. These three-part sessions are available to any skill and experience level. Each session will follow the following format:

5:30-6:30pm: Introduction to Technical Theatre
An introduction to terminology, equipment, and the great capacity they provide to transform a performance space. This section is particularly suited to individuals and groups interested in renting the Theater and/or presenting events, members of the arts community looking to increase their general field knowledge, and anyone who has ever been curious about the backstage functions of a performance space.

6:30-7:00pm: Discussion Topic
Focusing on a different topic each time, we will have a guest from the technical theater community lead a discussion about their area of expertise. Guest Speaker for this session: E.J. Ernsberger, First Electrician-Lighting with the IU Auditorium.

7:00-8:30pm: Lighting and Audio Workshop
These sessions provide opportunities to delve into practical, hands-on work with Lighting and Audio equipment as well as some simple staging and theater operations. We will work together to set up aspects of a different mock BCT event for each session.

If you have questions about the training session’s content, please contact Skylar Delk, assistant technical director, at sdelk@buskirkchumley.org.

IU Auditorium
http://www.iuauditorium.com/events/detail/chicago-2018

There’s never been a better time to experience CHICAGO, Broadway’s razzle-dazzle smash. This triumphant hit musical—the recipient of six Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy, and thousands of standing ovations—is now the longest-running American musical in Broadway history!

CHICAGO has everything that makes Broadway great: a universal tale of fame, fortune, and all that jazz, accompanied by one show-stopping number after another, including “Cell Block Tango,” “Roxie,” and Mama Morton’s unforgettable “When You’re Good to Mama.” After its success on the stage, the show was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film in 2002. It’s no surprise that CHICAGO has wowed audiences from Mexico City to Moscow, from Sao Paulo to South Africa, and will make its way to Bloomington this fall!

Whether it’s your first Broadway musical experience or your 10th time seeing the show, CHICAGO always delivers!

ELF The Musical is the hilarious and heartwarming tale of Buddy, who, as a young orphan child, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole.

With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, discover his true identity, and help the city remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern day Christmas classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner ELF.

Based on the beloved 2003 New Line Cinema film, ELF features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin (The Wedding Singer), with a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray), and Bob Martin (The Drowsy Chaperone).
