I purchased tickets online through TicketsNashville, how do I actually get my tickets?
The delivery method for online purchases is WILL CALL. When you arrive at the theatre, please come directly the WILL CALL counter. Be prepared to give the name of the person who placed the order to receive your tickets. You may print out and bring your receipt to speed the process if you wish. Tickets may be picked up on the day of the performance you purchased, beginning 1.5 hours before curtain.
Why do we not admit children under 4 to our performances?
We have found that it is a rare 3-year-old who can sit through a full-length production without becoming distracting to those seated around them. We have also found that virtually everyone believes that their 3-year-old is the exception, but that belief has no basis in fact. Usually, the parents are blithely unaware of how miserable they are making things for those around them. This creates very uncomfortable situations that our House Staff are required to handle. It is just simply best to avoid this all around.
How do I get to be in a play?
You must audition. The best way to find out about upcoming auditions is to sign up on this website to receive our Newsletter.
Do you have to attend Springhouse Worship and Arts Center to be in a play?
No. Auditions are open to all.
Do you have to be a Christian to be in a play?
No. Once again, auditions are open to all.
Do you always cast the same people?
No. Casting is left up to the discretion of each Director, but it is our policy to include new faces in each of our casts as often as possible.
When considering casting for major roles any Director will tend to lean toward someone they have had a good experience working with before. Therefore, even though you may be talented you may have to perform a smaller role at first. One of our sayings is that “When you do a show you are already auditioning for your next show.” We have had approximately 80 lead roles to date and they have been played by no less than 60 different people.
How are plays selected?
We have a Theatre Council that oversees the functions of Springhouse Theatre Company. This Council is responsible for selecting plays and Directors for both the main season and the Blackbox.
How does one become a member of the Theatre Council?
Because Springhouse Theatre Company is a ministry of Springhouse Worship and Arts Center (SWAC) membership on the Theatre Council is considered a leadership position at SWAC. Therefore, the members of the Theatre Council are selected from the regular attendees of SWAC annually and serve one-year terms. They can serve consecutive terms. The Theatre Council is usually made up of between 15 and 20 members, all of whom are active in one or more of the many areas necessary to produce quality theatre.
