CMS Spring Play: Auditions
Tuesday December 11th and Wednesday December 12th after school.
Actors will audition for the show by preparing a memorized monologue or poem (no more than 1 minute). Auditions will take place in groups of 8-12 (sign-up link coming soon). We want auditions to be a positive experience for all students — we do a warm-up together, which will include theater exercises and games. For casting we look for confidence, clarity, expression, character choices, volume, risk taking, ensemble spirit, trying hard, and focus. Our aim is that students have fun while gaining valuable audition experience.
Call backs will be on Monday December 17 and Wednesday December 18 after school; you will be notified if you are required to attend a call back and a sign-up link will be provided at that time via e-mail.
Student Tech Crew positions include stage managers, light board operator, sound board operator, backstage run crew, costume crew, and hair & makeup. Students interested in Tech Crew will express their interest via the audition sign-up link (coming soon). Students interested in stage managing must attend rehearsals each week; those in other positions will need to attend a run-through rehearsal in March and all Final Rehearsals in April (see below).
Almost History will be performed at Woodside Priory School on Wednesday April 17 and Thursday April 18, 2019 (after Spring Break). Rehearsals will run 2-3 times per week January through March after school at CMS from 3-5 p.m. (2-4 p.m. on Wednesdays). Number of rehearsals per week will depend on student’s role. Final Rehearsals will occur after Spring Break: April 8-11 at CMS and April 15-16 at Priory. No conflicts allowed for these final rehearsals in April and no conflicts allowed for the performances April 17 & 18.
There is NO COST to be part of the show. We hope to cast every student who auditions, based on participation.
