Fiddler on the Roof Student Information
Those who are going to participate in the fall musical need to complete their registration by Friday, September 18th. We encourage everyone to fill out their registration early.
Fall Musical Registration (cast, crew and orchestra)
Students should complete the following steps before auditions:
- Fill out the audition information and conflict calendar BEFORE auditions.
- Sign up on the same link for a vocal/acting audition during one of the following times:
- Monday, September 14 at 3:15 pm
- Wednesday, September 16 at 4:15 pm
- Students can prepare a vocal audition piece of their choosing or sing a song from the show that the vocal director will select and teach to the whole group. Audition pieces should have an MP3 or CD accompaniment as there will be no accompanist present for auditions and should consist of at least 32 bars. Students can sing anything from their repertoire but a pop song is not recommended. Students are encouraged to sing the staff-selected piece if they have not prepared a song in advance (don’t throw it together last minute).
