Our goal is to provide a safe, fun, and welcoming environment where people can do more than just act; people can grow, learn, and form lasting bonds.
In many aspects of Theatre, especially improv, being able to come up with an idea in the moment is vital to truly connecting with a scene and the people in it.
Whether it's taking the time to learn your lines outside of school or going out to get companies ads in the playbills, the students who are able to go out of their way for their company are always highly valued.
When a director can trust their cast to work on their own, the director can be allowed to shift their focus to other matters of running the show. When the director doesn't have to worry about their cast, everything runs more smoothly.
Being in a Thunder Theatre Company show is not a right or a guarantee for anyone, it is a privilege. With TTC, we value the people who understand that and act accordingly even when it isn't easy or schedules begin to clash.
With Theatre, it is extremely important to be able to "think outside the box" and use anything handy and make the most out of only a little. Whether it is improv or a full length drama, sometimes the script can require a stretch of the imagination.
An actor could show up to rehearsals once a week, but even if they are worked very hard in that time, they are likely to give a mediocre performance. However, the actor who comes every day and stays with the program is the actor who shines. TTC values those hard-working stars who stick with the program through thick and thin.
Even when times get rough and tough decisions have to be made, it is IMPERATIVE that any and all members of TTC stay positive and open. With support, trust and patience, the Thunder Theatre Company will excel for years to come. Positivity is not only suggested, it is REQUIRED.
