Students may be involved in the musical by auditioning for the cast or volunteering for the crew.
Students who are interested in being part of the cast are asked to audition in two parts: Day #1-Dance Auditions, Day #2/3-Singing/Acting Auditions Both portions will be presented in front of a small panel of faculty members or other adults asked by the directors to participate in the adjudication of student auditions.
Students should select a 1 minute monologue and a 30 second portion of a musical theater song, to work on individually and present. The Singing/Acting portions are held over two days and students may sign up for a time that works best for them. During this portion of the audition, the auditioning student will first sing his/her song with a piano accompaniment (please bring sheet music for our accompanist to play for you) and then perform his/her monologue. The dance audition is scheduled on a separate day in three sessions. Students may, again, select a time that works best for them. During this portion of the audition, a group of auditioning students will be taught a dance. They will then perform this dance in small groups.
After this audition process, students may be asked to return for a “call back.” Call backs are meant to provide directors with a "second look" at the students abilities as they seek to cast the show. Call backs do NOT guarantee that students have earned a role, nor does exclusion from call backs imply that a student has not made the show.
Once the cast has been finalized, a CAST LIST will be posted on this website AND on David Jensen’s staff page. Students in the cast are expected to attend the corresponding rehearsals for their role.
Students who are interested in taking part in the crews should attend the ALL TECH meetings. These will be held around the same time as auditions. At these meetings, the various crews will be described.Crews include lights, sound, video, set building, costumes, make-up,properties, publicity. Students are encouraged to select one crew and indicate their preference on the afore mentioned online Tech Form; some students are able to work on multiple crews, but meetings and responsibilities have a tendency to overlap. Once students have selected their crew, they are expected to attend the corresponding meetings.
