Thank you to all who auditioned for The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. We were very impressed by the talent of all those who tried out.
CLICK HERE to see the final cast list.
Unfortunately, we had more students audition than we are capable of handling on stage. If you did not get a part, please do not be discouraged. One of the realities of theatre is that there is not always a role that fits every person. We do look forward to seeing you again in the future!
However, as you can see, we were lacking elsewhere. We need two adult men to fill out the cast. If you know of anyone who might be willing to try their hand at stage acting, please contact Hannah (email@example.com) or Ms. Brey.
Some people were just meant for the stage. The all new Regis Community Theatre will give members of our Regis Catholic Schools family, and those in the community, a chance to show off their talents!
The new Regis Community Theatre, created and managed by Regis High School teacher Judine Brey, will offer several shows every year, each with a focus on religious themes. While the Regis Community Theatre will be open to anyone in the Eau Claire community, it will focus on the families, faculty, staff, and alumni at Regis Catholic Schools.
“The Regis Community Theatre will provide more theatrical opportunities for students of all ages,” Brey said. “The students at our three elementary schools will have an earlier opportunity to participate in theatrical productions in a setting they are comfortable with, giving them a more complete background when they enter the Regis Middle and High School drama program.”
The Regis Community Theatre will produce three shows a year, beginning this summer with The Miracle Worker by William Gibson.
“This script allows for a cast covering a broad age-range; children through adults,” Brey noted. “Having belonged to casts of this nature, the diversity in age creates a nice family feeling among all the participants, with younger cast members receiving an opportunity to learn from observing and talking to older cast members.”
There will be no charge to participate in the Regis Community Theatre and Brey welcomes all participants, no matter the level of experience. In addition to launching the Regis Community Theatre, Brey is also taking on a new role as Regis’ first Fine Arts Director, giving our schools an even greater emphasis on the importance of the arts.
“Because I gained so many things from the fine arts, I am always looking for a way to give back to those activities,” Brey said. “I am very excited to begin this new venture!”
During the school year, the Regis Community Theatre will produce two seasonal shows, a Christmas show in December and a Lent/Easter show in March/April.
“These productions will allow us, as a faith-based community, to deliver spiritual messages through our performances – something that is done far too little in theatrical circles,” Brey said.
Regis Catholic Schools President Mark Gobler says he is excited for the system to add this new opportunity.
“While the Chippewa Valley has developed into a fine cultural center, we at Regis Catholic Schools feel we can fill a niche of presenting family centered, faith-filled plays and performances,” Gobler said. “Under the direction of Ms. Brey, we will include adult members of our parishes, our students, and alumni to offer community wide productions, which we feel is a wonderful opportunity.”
“I ask for your patience and prayers as we head into this new venture for the Regis Catholic Schools fine arts programs. Your support now and in the future is greatly appreciated,” added Brey.
