2009 North Carolina
4-H Performing Arts Troupe
July 22, 2009 - 8:00 p.m.
Paul A. Johnston Auditorium
Johnston Community College, Smithfield, NC
Preview: July 22 at 2:00 p.m.
In recognition of the North Carolina 4-H Centennial, we are pleased to announce that in 2009
4-H’ers and leaders from across the state will have the opportunity to be involved in a new version of the 4-H Performing Arts Troupe. Some of you may remember the Troupe from the 80’s, and the vision for 2009 is very similar. Unlike most 4-H performing groups around the country, our Troupe will not be a variation on a show choir. Instead, we will rehearse and stage an original musical theatre production written to celebrate the 100 year history of 4-H in North Carolina as part of the Centennial Celebration at 4-H Congress.
Current 4-H members ages 12-18 auditioned for the 22 performing roles in the Troupe. The Troupe will give them an opportunity to work with other talented 4-H'ers from across North Carolina. As a result of the auditions, we have an outstanding cast for the production of We Are 4-H - The Musical. They will be joined by two technical students and lead by a professional staff and volunteer leaders. Click here for a list of 4-H'ers selected.
