To maintain social distancing we are asking folks to submit a video for their audition. This video should be a recording of you reading one of the monologues provided in the sides. Please also slate* in your video as a separate character from the character you are reading. Feel free to experiment with dialects, expressions and gestures in your reading. You will be able to submit your video in the audition form.
If you have any questions please email either Marcie or Leah.
* For those who don’t know a slate is an introduction before your audition. For instance a slate might sound like: Hi my name is (Insert Name here) and I will be reading monologue #2. For this audition we would like you to slate as another character(not yourself).
* The audition form will not work using your school account. Please use this form only if you DO NOT have an alternate Google account: Alternate Audition Form.

About the Rehearsals
Rehearsals for this production will take place in the theater from 3:30pm until 6:30pm during the week. The three separate casts will rehearse separately with time provided in between for sanitizing the space.
Please see the calendar for specific rehearsal times. This will also be updated to reflect who is called when.
So long as school doesn’t move to distance learning, performances for the production will take place in person in the theater. At this time there will not be a live audience in the theater, but each performance will be live streamed to a virtual audience.
Performances will take place November 13-15th, with strike taking place on November 15th immediately following the performance.
