ARTSNCT off ering unique opportunity to one lucky student NEWCOMERSTOWN - ARTSNCT, Newcomerstown’s new arts center, is now accepting proposals from students in the tri-county area (Tuscarawas, Coshocton, and Guernsey counties) for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to choose, cast, direct, and present a stage play of their choice. Eligibility requires that the applying student be in grades 9-12 for the 2019-2020 school year or recently graduated from high school in 2019. “We are looking for one special person who has been in school or community productions and has developed a special love for the theatre; a high school thespian, a theatre geek, or a creative individual that would like the chance to make a vision come alive,” said Michael Wise, the center’s executive director. “When I was a senior in high school, the teacher who was to direct the school plays reneged and when no other faculty member stepped up to the helm, I did.” During the fi rst part of his high school senior year, Wise had organized a drama club at Newcomerstown Middle School. He shifted his attention to the high school when his proposal was accepted by its principal and school board. Without adult supervision, he proved that he could direct every aspect of the production. “I did it because I had a great theatre director for the two prior years,” said Wise. “He inspired me with confi - dence and was a great teacher, director, and friend.” Th at teacher was Mr. Richard Smith who later suggest- ed to one of his students to pursue an acting career. Th at student, named Julie Smith, went on to become Oscar winner Julianne Moore. Directing the high school play, “Send Me No Flowers”, was a lifetime experience that Wise has never forgotten and now he wants to off er the same experience to one special individual. ARTSNCT will obtain the rights, pay royalties, provide scripts, rehearsal, and performance space for the produc- tion. Th e center’s staff and volunteers will provide as much or as little assistance as the chosen director would like. ARTSNCT will retain all rights as the show's producer. ARTSNCT will split the box offi ce profi t with the young director and his cast. For complete details, rules, and an application, please go to or email michael.wise@ Deadline for submitting proposals is Saturday, May 18. Performance dates to be announced. ARTSNCT is located at 304 South College Street, New- comerstown.
