The Lion King Auditions
- Auditions are scheduled for Thursday, December 8th after school in the Board Room located in the 8th Grade hall. Audition materials can be found below.
- Students are asked to bring a list of any conflicts that they have from January 4th until March 17th. This includes, but is not limited to: sports practices, church/religion classes, dance/music/vocal lessons, doctor’s appointments, vacations, etc.
- The performances are tentatively scheduled for Thursday, March 16th and Friday, March 17th, 2017.
- Students will come to auditions, turn in their completed audition form, and will learn a short dance routine. After everyone has danced, students will be called in to sing individually and then will either be asked to stay or told that they are free to go. If asked to stay, students will read from the script in small groups after all of the singing is finished. If you are not asked to stay and read, that does not mean that you will not get a part. It simply means that we have heard enough from you for the day.
- For the singing auditions, students may choose to sing any song from The Lion King. Songs from the movie or the Broadway musical are acceptable. Songs will be sung a capella (no piano or CD), and do not have to be memorized.
- Generally, auditions for the spring musical are over around 7:00 pm, but it depends on how many students show up to audition. After everyone has had a chance to audition, we will decide on a cast. The cast list will be posted on the Drama Club website. We hope to have the cast list posted by 9:00 pm on Thursday, December 8th. If you are cast in the show, the first read through will be on Monday, December 12th from 3:30-5:00.
- Rehearsals are tentatively scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 pm-6:00 pm. With the exception of the read through, all rehearsals will begin after Winter Break.
- Sometime after Winter Break, we will have a separate sign up for students who are interested in being on Stage Crew. Students who are only interested in being on Stage Crew DO NOT need to come to auditions.
