Here is what you need to know:
Show dates are Nov. 18, 19, 20 (pending final approval from the school district).
Rehearsals will start Sep. 19. and will be held Mondays every week, with various Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays added in to make a total of 2 days each week in September and 3 days each week in October and November. The size of the child’s part will determine how often he/she needs to attend; most students will not have to attend every rehearsal. Most rehearsals will be held at St. Mary Catholic Church, though there will be some held at an alternate location, yet to be determined.
Performances will be in the evenings of Nov. 18 and 19 and a matinee on Nov. 20. Students are expected not to miss ANY rehearsals during the week of Nov. 14 unless due to illness. Other absences, as long as they are noted in advance, are acceptable.
Audition scenes are posted below. Students will be asked to read from at least one of them. Actors are not expected to memorize any parts; however, it is recommended that actors spend some time becoming familiar with the lines and the characters before the audition. This play is a melodrama, which means the characters are all slightly exaggerated. The director is looking for strong acting choices, which can mean a character voice, a way of moving, and lots of facial expressions. The director also wants to hear that students can project (be loud) and speak clearly. Copies of the scenes will be available at the auditions, or students can bring their own copy.

Following the lead of our government officials and the concern for people auditioning for The Only Man in Town, we may have to alter our plan for auditions. Please continue to check our social media for updates.
