Are you a high school student who loves to create and perform? Auditions for The 16th Annual Manoa Project are coming up!

2018 Manoa Project Auditions will be held:
May 2nd from 5:30-7:30pm and
May 5th from 12-2pm
with the possibility of adding one audition day.
If you can’t make any listed audition times or live out of town, email for alternative audition possibilities. 

Students will be scheduled for one 1/2 hour time slot on either day as best fits their/a group schedule. Students need not prepare anything but auditions are physical and participants should come dressed to move (jeans or dresses are not recommended).

This program is a one-of-a-kind high school training program presented by Tricklock Company in partnership with the National Hispanic Cultural Center.

In this month-long intensive, students will learn methods of ensemble-based creation, including acrobatics, clowning, circus skills, and a variety of physical theatre styles. The Manoa Project is intensive and exciting and for every skill level, bringing a little bit of everything to the table: physicality, musicality, writing, design, stage management, paletas, waterfights, and friendships that last well into college and beyond.

The training program ends with a fully produced performance of a brand new devised work written, created by the ensemble over the course of the summer.

Performances are held at the gorgeous facilities of the National Hispanic Cultural Center. This year’s Manoa Project runs June 4th – June 29th, Monday through Friday from 10am – 4pm with a break for lunch. Performances will be held June 28th and 29th at 8pm.

Students must be high school aged, emerging 9th graders (students who have completed 8th grade and will enter 9th grade in the fall) to descending 12th graders (students who have just completed high school.)

Each student is expected to attend all trainings, rehearsals, and performances, and absences or conflicts must be approved by the trainers and program coordinators.

The Manoa Project is FREE for participants and accepts no more than 15 students. An audition is required. (Arrangements can be made for students who live out of town.)
