The Greater Grand Forks Community Theatre operates
three main programming components.
Community Theatre: The Community Theatre
produces three major amatuer productions per
year (fall, winter, spring), including one amatuer
musical. Community Theatre productions are open
to the public at large, and no prior experience
is needed to audition. Production time is voluntary.
Rehearsals typically run five weeks, with a
three weekend production run.
Spotlight Players: The Spotlight Players
are the Community Theatre's young performers.
Designed for ages 4-14, the Spotlight Players
present a winter musical designed to give young
performers stage experience as well as teach
valuable life skills.
Crimson Creek Players: Crimson Creek
is a non-equity professional theatre troup that
produces one-two major summer musicals (June
and August). While auditions are open to the
public, Crimson requres a more experienced performer
(singing, dancing, acting). Productions rehearse
for fourteen intense evenings and perform for
one-two weeks. Performers, staff, musicians,
and technical crew are compensated for their
time. The purpose of Crimson Creek is to give
pre-professional experience to performers who
are persuing post secondary education, or who
have completed their education. The Crimson
Creek rehearsal schedule is restricted to mirror
typical Broadway production schedules.
