This is our night to shine as the drama club! The Gala is a showcase of theatrical talents, acting, singing, and dancing. Things to consider when putting together an “act” for auditioning:
Props, Costumes, Sound, Etc.
We will have 3 hand-held wireless microphones set up across the stage as well as 2 monitor speakers, and the keyboard will be plugged in downstage left. If you have any additional needs, let Megan and Ryleigh know so they can coordinate with those working on light & sound.
In terms of props, let the student directors know what needs you may have such as tables, chairs, or any additional small items. For the most part, each group sets up their own act, but we put together a set list and have stage managers helping backstage to make sure the show runs smoothly.
Costumes have been minimal in the past few years, but if you want to dress up in something other than “concert dress” type outfits, coordinate that amongst yourselves. If there are specific costuming needs, we can coordinate a trip to the warehouse if absolutely necessary, or we have the middle school prop room available to us as well. See Miss Sarazen for details if that is a need.
Thespian Society Induction
We’d like to make the induction ceremony into the International Thespian Society a little more formalized this year and do the recognition at the end of the first act. So, if you’re someone who will earn membership into the society or achieve a new level with your points, we’ll recognize you and ask you to come up on stage to get your ribbon, pin, or certificate. And there will probably be cake back in the choir room during intermission as a mini-reception for you! We’ll have a bake sale at intermission for the audience, and you can stay back and enjoy your own reception.
