Eligibility Requirements

At the beginning of the season, all students (cast and crew) that are involved in the musical MUST submit the following forms: an audition/tech form, a signed Code of Conduct, and a progress report.  The audition/tech form provides the directors with contact information.  In addition, students are asked to describe someof their goals for participating in the musical.  The Code of Conduct contract should be signed by both the students and a guardian.  This contract is meant to encourage students to avoid the use of tobacco, alcohol, and drugs and to avoid making poor choices that may alter both their lives and the success of the production.  Finally, all musical participants are expected to be passing four academic majors throughout the musical season.  

Joining Procedures

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: a monologue and song, and a dance. Both portions will be presented in front of a small panel of faculty members.

Students should select a monologue and a song to work on individually and present.  These auditions are held over two days and studentsmay sign up for a time that works best for them.  During this portion of the audition, theauditioning student will first sing his/her song with a piano accompaniment (provided for them) and then perform his/her monologue.  The dance audition is scheduled on a separate day.  Students may, again, select a timethat 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.  Call backs do NOT guarantee that students have earned a role, nor do they remove students from roles.

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; 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.


Students who are interested in playing in the orchestra may seek information from Mr. Tim Blakewell, the PR Band Director.
Time Commitment

The musical occurs during the winter season of the school year.  Typically auditions are held during the month of November and performances are in the month of March.  Meetings and rehearsals for cast and/or crew are held after school during December through March.  Dates and times of these meetings and rehearsals are given to students at the beginning of the season.  A calendar of these meetings and rehearsals can also be seen at: https://sites.google.com/site/prhstheater/Home/fine-arts-rehearsal-schedule.
