Knight School

The Adventures of Sir Art & The Good Knight Irene


Our program will provide a safe and exciting learning experience for actors of all skills, and learning abilities. Registration space is limited. We recommend registration be processed as soon as possible to secure your audition spot.


Knight School is a hilarious medeival story of two friends, Arthur & Irene, who dream of being knights and attending knight school. The only problem is girls are not allowed. How does Irene get around this school rule and what does it do to their friendship? You'll have to come and find out.


A few important details:


  • Auditions: February 20 from 11am to 1pm. All Registered students must audition and will be cast in the show. Time slots for auditions will be given once registration and payment has been received. Once maximums have been met registrants will go on a wait list and will be contacted following auditions. Actors should prepare a short reading from a story, play, or poem.  

  • Rehearsal Dates: We meet on Tuesdays, Thursdays (6pm to 8pm), and Saturdays at (10am to 1pm) starting March 1 through April 28. A rehearsal schedule will be posted so that actors know which days are mandatory for their character to attend. The week leading into the show opening (a.k.a. Tech Week) there will be rehearsals Tues April 26 (6pm to 8:30pm), Wednesday April 27 (6pm to 8:30pm) and Thursday April 28 (5:30pm to 8:30pm). Depending on your child’s role in the show they may not need to attend every rehearsal. All actors must attend the first rehearsal day and all days of Tech Week. There is no rehearsal March 12-20, or March 26.

  • Final productions: will take place April 29, 30 at 7pm and May 1 at 2 pm at the Old Town Hall Theatre in Cookstown.

  • Special Skills: We would love to know if you have the following abilities: accents, musical skills, ability to create various character voices, dance, anything interesting or unusual.....let us know.

  • Attendance is extremely important for the rehearsal process. When actors are missing from scenes it affects the whole group.  Absolutely no tech rehearsals (1 week prior to show) or performances can be missed. If you have a question regarding scheduling or known absences please let staff know at the time of your child’s registration/audition. Tech rehearsals begin April 26 - 28 (Tues, Wed, Thur). The staff of CPTC has the right to reassign roles if behavior or absences hinder the rehearsal process.

  • Forms: All students must have a completed registration, medical form on file at the time of registration. If your child has provided a medical form in the last 12 months a new one is not needed.
