In addition, CTC is hosting — for the very first time – an AUDITION WORKSHOP, which will be run by the Director of the Fall Show with assistance from other individuals involved in the production of INTO THE WOODS.  Among other planned activities over the course of the Workshop, attendees will hone their audition pieces, whether for the upcoming Fall Show or any other audition that they choose to pursue.  (Please note: You are not required to participate in the Workshop in order to audition for CTC’s Fall Show.)  A “final performance” will also be prepared and performed on the last day of the Workshop.  As an added bonus, everyone who participates in the Workshop will receive complimentary admission to a special engagement/matinee showing of the Disney movie: Into the Woods, which will be shown at the Theatre the Saturday following the Workshop.

Maudie, based on a true story, is an unlikely romance in which the reclusive Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) hires a fragile yet determined woman named Maudie (Sally Hawkins) to be his housekeeper.  Bright-eyed but hunched with crippled hands, Maudie yearns to be independent, to live away from her protective family, and she also yearns — passionately — to create art.  Unexpectedly, Everett finds himself falling in love.  Maudie charts Everett’s efforts to protect himself from being hurt, Maudie’s deep and abiding love for this difficult man, and her surprising rise to fame as a folk painter.
