Thank you to everyone who auditioned! I have sent emails out to the cast. If you have not received one yet, you have not been cast. If you would like feedback on your audition, please see me or email me next week (Claire and I need some time to get our notes together).

Auditions for McImprov and Mary Poppins

Auditions for the Everyone Gets Eaten by Sharks are this Thursday and Friday – see the post below.

Auditions for McImprov are September 5 & 6 after school. You will be taught a few improv structures and will perform in them. There is a sign up sheet on the drama room door.

Auditions for Mary Poppins are September 10, 11 & 12. You should prepare 16 bars (about 30 seconds) of a song from a musical. You should also have a backing track – a karaoke track on youtube is fine. You may be asked to read a scene and there will be a dance audition as well. The dance audition is to determine who we want to feature in the large dance numbers – you don’t have to be a good dancer in order to be cast. If you tap, please bring a short routine (a minute or less, please) to show what you can do. We plan on featuring tap dancers in one of the numbers.

There will be a sign up sheet on the drama room door by the end of this week.
