Thank you to all who auditioned for our musical "CHICAGO: Teen Edition"
    It was so great meeting you all and seeing your fantastic talents over the last few days. You all displayed great talent and impressed everyone on our panel.

Everyone is called as this is our first meeting. We will go over introductions, expectations and plans for the show.

    For a STRAIGHT SHOW (non-musical)- Prepare a 1-2 minute monologue from a different published play. The piece should fit the style of show auditioning for (Drama, Comedy, etc...) Piece must be memorized.
    Any student auditioning for a show needs to complete / turn in an "Audition Application"; look over and agree to the expectations and responsibilities of participating in a production and have parent signature. 
    It is important to know that NOT ALL STUDENTS THAT AUDITION WILL BE CAST IN THE SHOW. All students are encouraged to be a part of our production, if not offered a role in the cast, students can still be a part of our amazing crew; crew application is listed below as well. 
    --> You will also need to turn in a Grade Check (minimum 2.0 GPA with no failing courses) and a signed Parent Letter at the time of your audition. All Audition Forms are available for pickup in the VMHS Drama Room (P152)
    Production Pack (for those cast in the production; will be distributed at first meeting)

    Come be a Part of Our Show!
    The general schedule is for overall planning purposes. A more detailed breakdown of our schedule will be provided once show is cast, but will be within the overall time frame of above schedule. Please go over this (WITH YOUR PARENTS) so everyone knows what the commitment is.  Also, please share the Parent Student Notification form to be aware of commitment expectations.
    Any student interested in participating in one of our all school productions must sign up for a date/time, complete an audition application (link below), and be fully committed to the production schedule. For straight plays (comedy or drama) you should prepare a 1-2 minute monologue from a published play (but NOT from the play you are auditioning for) and be ready to perform at your scheduled time.   For musicals, you should prepare a 1 minute song that showcases your vocal range and abilities. Auditions for musicals usually also include a Dance Audition (you will be taught a short section/routine).
    Callbacks are another step in the audition process in which the directing team will provide selections from the script for Cold Readings. Casting decisions are always difficult and are made with what is best for the production. Many things are considered: Talent, Schedule/conflicts, Academic standing, attitude (demeanor and work ethic).
    We will post specifics of schedule soon. 
    Break a Leg!
