Winter Musical Auditions: What do I need to do?
At the end of today’s practice, you will have the opportunity to sign up for an audition time slot with a partner. Please figure out which day and time works better for you. 2 people should sign up for each 5-minute slot on the sheet. Dates and times are:
Tuesday, 10/17 (LGI ROOM) – 3:00-4:00, 4:00-5:00, 5:00-6:00, 6:00-7:00
Wednesday, 10/18 (LGI ROOM) – 3:00-4:00, 4:00-5:00, 5:00-6:00
Thursday, 10/19 (AUDITORIUM) – 3:00-4:00, 4:00-5:00, (5:00-6:00 if needed)
If you are unsure about which day or time to sign up for or need to check with parents, you may add your name to the sign-up sheet during the day tomorrow or Friday. It will be posted on the wall outside of Room A011 downstairs (6th Grade Chorus Room by the locker rooms and tech ed hallway). We will take the papers on Friday after school to type them up and print out for the audition days.
We know about the Halloween Dance on Thursday. We will provide the list of students signed up to audition with the teachers monitoring the hallway by the gym and you will either enter the dance late (if in the first group) or have to leave and come back when it is time for you to audition. If you are in the 3:00-4:00 you should just come to the front of the auditorium. If in the 4:00-5:00, you should leave the dance at 3:45 to be in the Band Hallway by 4:00 and we’ll call the group in to begin. When you have finished doing all 3 parts of your audition, you may return to the dance.
Email Mr. Cloonan with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Linked below is the PDF of the sheet music as well as a track with vocals and one without for you to practice before your audition.
Here is the video Mr. Kelly made of the dance combo taught at the practice. There are 4 videos:
1 - Front facing, mirroring, slowly
2 - Back facing, slowly
3 - Front facing, mirroring, with music
4 - Back facing, with music
There are 2 "sides" (audition scenes) that Mr. Cloonan went over at the practice. You and your partner only have to read ONE of the sides during your audition. Practice reading with expression and you may choose to act it out as well.
Please make sure to have a completed Audition Information Form with you at your audition. We will have extras available on the audition days if you forget it or don't have it ready. You may also download, print out, and complete the file linked below.
