Hello AGDT Teens!
Welcome to the third semester of "AGDT Interns!" This new program was started last summer and it has been a huge help to me - so it is back!
Most of you have been involved with AGDT for awhile, so you can see how the group has grown! When I first started teaching, I had 11 students. Now, after 18 semesters of AGDT, 121 girls have been involved! I have had some requests for the older girls to be able to get more experience in the “technical/directing” aspect of AGDT, so I have instituted the AGDT Intern Position.
Intern Duties may include (but are not limited to):
Acting as Assistant Director at all times during the production
Organizing Student Forms (t-shirts, DVD, etc) and Scripts
Helping to assign costumes/shoes/accessories/props
Working with actresses - giving examples of directed blocking, how to say lines, etc.
Being “Team Leader” for your group on Performance Day
Arriving early/staying late on Performance Day to help with setup/strike
Helping with Lincoln :)
Some of the benefits you will gain from being an AGDT Intern:
T-shirt from the Production you are Interning
$10 Discount on AGDT Teen Tuition (if you are not enrolled in a class this semester, the credit can be saved for a later date)
I will also be happy to write letters of recommendation when you start applying to college, jobs, etc.
To apply for an AGDT Intern position:
You must be at least 14 years old
You must have participated in at least 3 AGDT Productions
You should be available for the Costume Day (June 30)
You must be available for the Performance Day (August 3 or 4, depending on the class you intern)
You must not have more than 2 rehearsal conflicts (which must be stated on application)
There are four kid’s productions this semester:
Available - Tuesday 4:30-6:00 PM - Little House: Country Girls
Available - Tuesday 6:00-7:30 PM - Friendship & Freedom (Addy)
Available - Thursday 1:00-2:30 PM - The Princess' Tea Party (Molly)
Available - Thursday 2:30-4:00 PM - Annoying Annabelle (Felicity)
Tuesday Classes will begin on June 5 and run weekly through July 31 (no class on July 17).
The Performance Day for the Tuesday classes will be Saturday, August 4.
Thursday Classes will begin on June 14 and run weekly through August 2.
The Performance Day for the Thursday classes will be Friday, August 3.
There will be an AGDT Intern meeting on Tuesday, May 29 from 2:00-3:00pm.
There will be a Costume Day on Saturday, June 30 from 10:00am-3:00pm.
One AGDT Intern will be assigned to each kid’s production. Since I have no way to gauge how many of you may be interested in this program, for now I am asking anyone interested to fill out an AGDT Intern Application. Applications are due by Thursday, May 24. Selected Interns will be notified no later than May 27.
