IT CAST wants YOU!

IT! CAST (Committed Alumni Supporting the Theater) is an alumni group for Imagination Theater participants, past and present.  If you have ever been on stage, painted a set, sewn a costume, moved a piece of furniture, pushed a control room button, or directed others to do so, you are a member!  It is our hope that this group will keep our relationships to the theater and each other strong so that we can support each other in every sense of the word.  Plus, we want to have fun!

Come join us at our quarterly CAST parties (see invitation below) as we stretch our imaginations and cast off our perceived limitations with the help of a supportive and appreciative IT! CAST family. Participate in games, sharpen your skills, stand in the spotlight and deliver something that no one knew you could do. Or, just sit back and enjoy the good company.

The idea behind these events is simple: to re-connect, have fun, meet new people, and display talents. After a run, we always say we should get together again but we seldom do. A new show or activity takes precedence and life gets in the way. You’ve got other friends to hang out with, sure…but deep down you know you long for the kind of fun that is, quite frankly, unique to the theater. We are theater people: we enjoy improv games, put new twists on old songs, love wearing costumes, crave the spotlight, want to be around people who know the words to Broadway showtunes, and crack up when we do really bad accents. It’s fun!  Hope to see you there!

You are cordially invited to
The Summer
IT! CAST* Party
(*Committed Alumni Supporting the Theater)
Imagination Theater 
Saturday, June 22nd 6pm-9pm
Please bring a finger food, dessert, or beverage to share
Dress as yourself. (Or somebody else…we won’t judge.)


All casts, crews, and production teams from all shows at IT! are invited
Significant others, children and parents are also welcome
(members under 14, please bring a parent or responsible older sibling)

Want to get involved?
  • Piano Bar: We have added a sing-a-long Piano Bar to the party festivities!  Jerri will play a set of musical numbers requested by YOU!  Join our Facebook group and submit your song requests.  An official song list will be posted about a week before the party so we can all be prepared (or not, this is informal).
  • Improv/Theater Games: Join the fun with Who’s Line Is It Anyway’s style performances.  Please plan to attend one of two rehearsals/logistics coordinations prior to the party so we’re ready for an audience!  Rehearsals are Wednesday June 19, 10-11am OR 6-7pm at Kate's house in Camino.  RSVP to Kate at the CAST email below for directions.
  • Bartending: We are looking for adult volunteers to take shifts tending the beer/wine bar.  You will be asked to open and pour the wine, as well as ID anyone under 30 and monitor the bar area.
  • Talent Presentation: If you want to prepare a solo or group presentation for your peers, please contact Michelle ASAP at the CAST email below, and plan to provide any accompaniment you may need. The sound system, a keyboard and mics will be provided, please contact Marc and/or Sean with technical concerns.  Though not necessary, if you are interested in borrowing props and/or costumes, please contact us ahead of time to arrange a meeting at the theater.  
The program will be pre-arranged on a first come first served basis, so reply as soon as possible
We hope to see you there, but if you can’t make it this time, please know that there will be more IT! CAST Parties in the not-so-distant future. If you prefer not to be contacted in the future, simply let us know and we’ll remove you from our list. Whatever your preferences, please pass this invitation on to anyone in your cast/crew who may not have been contacted due to email address changes, etc. We don’t want to leave anyone out!
