Cristina and I would like to see the following people on Friday after school:
Boys: Ryan, Josh, Jack, Clay, Iain, Miguel, Sam E, Sully
Girls: Diana, Tynan, Emma, Morgan, Maddie E, Katherine M, Natalie C, Jaelyn, Sydney, Wylie, Lydia, Ava
Thank you to everyone who auditioned! If you would like feedback, please see me sometime next week.
Auditions for Urinetown will be September 9. I’ll post more information soon.
The competition one act will be Doublewide Texas. The second one act is Failure A Love Story but we’ll be using a one act version of the play.
Auditions are August 16 and 17. Auditions will consist of scenes from the plays. You should read both and pay close attention to the characters. You do not need to prepare a monologue.
There will be a sign up sheet on the drama room door.
Performance dates at October 19, 20 and 21, and the competition date for Doublewide is October 28. If we are lucky enough to advance to the state competition, it will be November 4.
Auditions for the one act plays will be August 16 and 17, with callbacks on the 18. Performances will be October 19, 20 and 21, all at 7pm. The one act regional competition will be October 28 at Whitewater.
For the audition, you should read each one act (I will have them posted by August 7) and be prepared to perform scenes from them. You will not need to prepare a monologue. I will post more information as we get closer to the auditions.
We’ll read Bad Seed: Part 1 Part 2 Part 3
This will be on Tuesday 6pm at Ava’s house. Email me if you need the address. We will order pizza, so bring a few bucks to chip in.
Here’s the cutting for Miracle Worker: img005 (All put other readers up as I hear back from people)
Lydia : Kate
Ava: Helen (Sorry – I had to!)
Leonora: Aunt EV
Sydney: Annie Sullivan
For the Last Nickel, I’d like the following people:
Lydia: Nurse 1
Leonora: Nurse 2
Let’s meet at Starbucks again at 2pm. We will definitely read the Last Nickel. I love the play, and I think it will have a tremendous impact on the audience. The only problem is that the cast is only four people – two women and two puppets (who could be played by any gender).
If I can cut it down, we’ll also read Miracle Worker. Below is the full length version if you’d like to read it.
Finally, there’s Another Happy Ending. I wrote this while I was teaching middle school, but I think it translates very well to high school. While I’d love to do it, I don’t think I could cut it down to 55 minutes.
The Last Nickel
Another Happy Ending – high
We’ll meet in the community room of the Starbucks next to Publix.
Here’s the play we’ll read on Thursday. Let me know if you can make it – there are still a few roles that need to be read for.
We’ll have a read through on Thursday, July 13 at 2pm in the drama room. If we have enough people, we’ll read Good Kids. If not, we’ll do Dark Road or another play I have in mind. Please email if you plan on coming. I’ll post by Tuesday what play we’ll read so you can get a head start on it (I’ll also post the script).
I hope everyone is having a great summer!
Here’s a model I’ve been working on for the Urinetown set. I’m still working on the other scenes, and I’ll post them once I finish them. My current thought is that the rooftop and the amenity would stage out the entire time, though maybe pushed further to the sides when not used. I think distressing and aging everything will be a lot of fun! Oh, Neil Diamond and Darius Rucker will most likely not be in the cast.
