● Sign-up will begin on February 1, 2019.
● An appointment will be required to audition
● Beginning 2/1/2019 you may sign up on sign-up genius using a special link which will be posted to all social media outlets and the CCT website that morning.
● Once we receive your appointment confirmation you will receive a link to fill out your Actor Application via Google forms. You will also be asked to upload a photo/headshot to this form. Please have this form submitted at least 24 hours prior to your audition appointment. You will also receive a pdf copy of the conflict calendar. Please fill out all conflicts as they relate to our rehearsal schedule and bring it with you to your audition. *We ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment. We will be running on a tight schedule so please come prepared.*
Also, we will be having an audition workshop on April 8th and 9th. The workshop on April 8th will be specifically geared towards actors under age 13. All are welcome that evening, but keep in mind content and workshop materials will be geared towards the kids. The workshop on April 9th will be for actors 13 and older only.

The CCT Board of Directors are excited to announce that the long held dream of having our own theatre will become a reality in 2019. Completion of the project at 83 S. Walnut street is tentatively planned for next summer.

Recognizing the need to have the project completed sooner rather than later, the Board authorized the securing of a construction loan. Three local banks: Vinton County Bank (d.b.a Ross County Banking Center), Kingston National Bank, and Rockhold Bank formed a consortium to advance the necessary funds. Representatives of all three institutions were impressed with CCT's efforts in terms of the project work thus far completed, the organization's sound business plan and practices, and our serving South Central Ohio with the performing arts. They all felt this was an exciting opportunity to support not only CCT but the community as a whole.

At the banks' direction, work on the building was suspended until the loan could be executed. Now that it is approved, the next step in the construction process will be to complete the front of the building, weather permitting. This is to be followed by installation of the HVAC system, insulation, dry wall, etc. Should the weather not cooperate, the focus will initially be on inside work. The total project is expected to take approximately 9 months to complete.

While the finished building will be used for CCT activities such as the performance of plays and rehearsals, it will also enhance our ability to properly support our Children's Theatre wing. Flexible seating will also offer the opportunity for dinner theatre shows. In addition, the building will be made available for rental to the public for such things as recitals, meetings, etc. For shows drawing a large audience, such as large musicals, we will continue to use alternate venues.

While much of the project will be completed by construction professionals, there will be opportunities for CCT member volunteers to invest "sweat equity" in some parts of the process, thus saving money. More information regarding this will be made available at a later date. The Board emphasized that on-going fund raising activities are critical and will include the solicitation of donations, grant writing, and fund raising events. Details will be announced in the coming months.

As our 50th anniversary year draws to a close, what a great way to begin the next 50 years!
