Theatre Announces Audition Dates

CBHS Theatre announces auditions for "The NSA's Guide to Winning Friends & Influencing People (Or, What We've Learned from Watching You)" by Don Zolidis and our Tennessee Theatre Association competition play "Peter/Wendy" by Jeremy Bloom
NSA: This production is part of the 2018 Freshman Intensive Theatre Experience (F.I.T.E). In addition to Freshman students at CBHS we are expanding F.I.T.E to include Sophomores this year! Students interested in auditioning for F.I.T.E should show up to the CBHS Auditorium at 3:30 on August 13th to audition. No preparation necessary. You will read from the script for the audition. There are no callbacks. This production will be a staged reading and directed by the CBHS Theatre Captains.
Synopsis - Having trouble as the new kid in school? Unlucky in love? Feeling like everyone hates you? You're in luck! Now you can use the National Security Agency's techniques of wiretapping, code-breaking, and data mining to get ahead! There's no time like the present to embrace the surveillance state...because the surveillance state is already embracing you.
Peter/Wendy: This is our competition play and will be cast ONLY with Juniors and Seniors at CBHS. The show will travel to Austin Peay University in October for the Tennessee Theatre Association Secondary One-Act Festival and will be staged at CBHS in November. For auditions students should prepare a monologue from the show and show up to the CBHS Auditorium at 3:30 on August 14th. You can find the monologues at or at under the Student Life, Fine Arts, Theatre Tab. They don’t have to be memorized but you should be familiar. Callbacks will be on August 15th and 16th.
Synopsis - In this lyrical, atmospheric interpretation of Peter Pan, Jeremy Bloom strips the familiar story down to its emotional essence. Peter lures Wendy away from her nursery to the magical world of Neverland, where she joins his adventures with Tinker Bell, Tiger Lily, and the menacing Captain Hook. A low-tech, inventive adaptation that pays homage to the darker themes of J. M. Barrie's original, Peter/Wendy will mesmerize audiences of all ages.
CBHS only casts male roles from their student body. Both NSA and Peter/Wendy have female roles. We will cast females from ALL local High Schools. Freshman/Sophomore females interested in F.I.T.E please show up to the CBHS Auditorium on August 13th at 3:30. Junior/Senior females should show up to the CBHS Auditorium on August 14th at 3:30.
Showdates: F.I.T.E September 28th. Peter/Wendy October 18th - 21st (TTA) and November 15th - 17th at CBHS.

The CBHS Theatre Program exists as an ongoing educational venue in theatrical arts geared toward education and enlightening students, performers and spectators alike, toward the understanding that the ARTS are a vital and meaningful part of the human existence. The number one goal of theatre is education. To that end, the theatre staff work diligently to provide performance opportunities for as many students as possible who might wish to experience being a part of a theatrical stage work. This helps to ensure that many young men of CBHS, and female participants from other schools, have the exposure to theatrical arts education. There are opportunities galore for students of all talents - from actors and singers, to dancers, instrumentalists, designers, and those who love technical work. All young men who attend CBHS are eligible for auditions. Actresses from local high schools are part of our program, and we are always open to all who wish to audition and participate. Novice and veteran performers alike have a home with the CBHS theatre program.
