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.

Auditions for Everyone Gets Eaten By Sharks!

Auditions for the fun act play, Everyone Gets Eaten By Sharks will be Thursday and Friday, August 29 & 30 after school. There is a sign up sheet on the door to the drama room. You will choose a one hour slot on one of the days to audition. You should prepare and memorize a 30 second to one minute comedic monologue. You will also read sides (short sections) from the play. Please check the page about monologues not to use for auditions (look at the menu above).

The fun act will be on November 15 &16. Rehearsals will be on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, though you might not need to be at every rehearsal. You will need to be available every day the week of November 11 for tech week.

Here is a link to the play (you must be signed in to your fcboe account to access it: script
