How do I prepare for my audition?

  • Check your schedule with the rehearsal schedule on this site to make sure you won’t have conflicts.
  • PLEASE NOTE: rehearsals will be Mondays and Tuesdays from 3 – 5 PM. If your soccer practice begins at 5 PM, you will need to be late to soccer or make the choice not to audition for the play. Please note we will hold rehearsals during conference week, if you conference is scheduled during rehearsal you will leave quietly and then return when your conference is over. The rehearsal time will be from 11:30-1:30. We need actors who are committed to attending all needed rehearsals. Our rehearsing time is very short and tight; we need everyone to be there unless they are sick.
  • Read the Character List section on this site. Think about your acting skills and which characters you might enjoy being.
  • When you come to auditions please come prepared to one minute monologue to portray the personality of the character you would like to be considered for you will also be asked to freestyle dance for 30 seconds to the song Happy. You are welcome to audition with a monologue you have used in previous shows. If you have never been in a show before there are sample monologues included on the website and in the school Library.
  • Fill out the audition form and parent commitment form(find it on this site) and turn it in to Mrs. Deason’s Blue Mailbox located next to the bulletin board in the commons (it will be marked with a sign) by Monday, June 12, 2017 . PLEASE NOTE: the audition form is turned in before the audition day. NO late paperwork will be accepted after June 12th.
  • Come to your audition Tuesday, June 13th ready to say your monologue in character and be prepared for free style dancing for 30 seconds.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Every role is an important role to help give details and tell the story. If you child does not receive a speaking role it does not mean the role is less. There are many things for students to learn during rehearsals including blocking, songs, dancing, and many more.
