The cast list and the roles are now up on the Spamalot page. Thank you to everyone who auditioned!
Do you like to push the pram a lot? Then please see the Spamalot page for information about auditions!
There will be a parent meeting for the one act at 6pm on September 3. If your child is in the cast, or you would like to help out in any way (advertising, ticket sales, fundraising) please make plans to attend. My hope is to make this the biggest one act yet, but we will need all the help we can get!
Thank you to everyone who auditioned! I will have written feedback for everyone on Monday. If you were not cast, please audition for Spamalot (September 12) and the spring musical.

Cast, please send me a confirmation email from whatever email you use the most. See me Thursday afternoon for a script. Starting Friday, I will email some people letting you know what scenes I’d like you to try. If there is a scene you would like to be in, please email by Sunday afternoon.
You should plan on being at every rehearsal this coming week (unless you have conflicts that you put on the sheet). Please see me if you have any questions.
Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind – 30 plays in 60 minutes. Please see the Too Much Light page for more information, including a sample from the script, and come see me if you have any questions.
Auditions are August 17, 18 and 19. There is a sign-up sheet on the drama room door. You should prepare a comedic monologue. If you plan on auditioning and were not at the auditioning workshop, please read the following: Auditioning dos and donts, Audition Tips
Performances are October 1 and 3. The Regional competition is October 17.
Auditions for the one act will be on August 17, 18 and 19, after school. There will be a sign-up sheet on the drama room door.
There will also be an auditioning workshop on August 11, from 4 to 5:30.
I will know by Monday, August 10 what the one act will be. It may be a drama, it may be a comedy, so I can’t tell you yet what kind of a monologue to start working on.
The audition workshop will be postponed to Tuesday, August 11, from 4:00 to 5:30. Auditions for the one act will be the next week. And yes, I’m still trying to figure out the one act.
This year’s musical will be
The Music Man. Sorry, just kidding. It will be Monty Python’s Spamalot. There is a fair amount of gender flexibility in casting. King Arthur will be a man, and the Lady of the Lake needs to be a woman, but other roles, like Sir Robin and even Lancelot could be played by a woman. Casting will be based mainly on auditions and who we think can best play each role, regardless of gender.
The performances are February 18, 19 and 20. All cast and crew must be available the weekend of Feb 13 and the two days we have off from school (including President’s Day). I’ll post information about auditions as soon as Ms. Potter and I figure out the time – probably in late September or October.
And no, I still don’t know what the one act will be. I’m having a few technical difficulties with it. Stay tuned!
