When are auditions?
Wednesday, September 11th
Where should I go?
Enter through the main doors of the auditorium - this is to your right when you enter the school through the arts entrance (by the bus loop), or to your left when you come from the cafeteria, or down the hall from the main office.
When should I arrive?
You can enter the auditorium right after school - plan to warm up independently, or participate in a group warm-up led by the ITS Board Members. Auditions will begin at 2:30 pm.
When will I be finished?
Auditions will take place in the order in which you sign up. The sign up link will be available on Friday, August 16th at 2:00 pm. If you are hoping to finish sooner, please sign up promptly. The last group should be finished by 4:00 pm.
What should I prepare?
Prepare a 1-minute contemporary comedic monologue. This should be memorized. The internet is a great starting place to find an audition piece!
What if I've never auditioned for a show before?
We will be so glad to see you! If you have never prepared a monologue before, we will have some pieces available for you to read. However, preparation is the best way to beat nerves! Plan to attend the Theatre Kickoff meeting on Thursday, August 29th, and you will be able to meet upperclassmen who will be happy to help you.
What is the time commitment like?
We will rehearse 5 days a week (Monday-Friday) beginning on Monday, September 16th. The show runs from October 30th-November 2nd. During that time, rehearsals will run until 4:30 pm, up until the week before the show, when they will run a bit longer. We will also have a tech rehearsal on Saturday, October 26th. Not every actor will be called to every rehearsal - you will receive a detailed schedule at the first cast and crew meeting. The more your character is on stage, the more you can expect to be scheduled for rehearsal.
What if I have prior commitments, but still want to be involved?
You will have an opportunity to submit all conflicts on your audition form. Please be honest about your conflicts - in some cases this can affect casting decisions, but it is respectful to your ensemble to be upfront about prior commitments. A few conflicts won't prevent you from being cast - many conflicts might this time, but there will be other opportunities in the future, and you can always interview for a position on the crew, which often requires fewer rehearsals!
When will I find out if I've been cast?
Callbacks will take place on Thursday, September 12th after school in the auditorium. The full company list (cast and crew) will be posted after school on Friday, September 13th (spooky!)
What if I want to be involved on the backstage crew?
Crew interviews will take place on Tuesday, September 10th after school in the Studio (room 1241). You should attend crew interviews if you are only interested in being considered for a position on the crew, or if you are interested in being involved any way, and plan to audition as well (we love these people!) There will not be makeup crew interviews if you audition first and then decide you want to interview, so plan ahead!
How do I sign up to audition or interview?
