    Auditions for Les Mis!

    New this year, we will audition for our fall musical, Les Miserables, the last week in August. If for some reason a student is unable to attend auditions due to summer conflicts, please contact director Kajsa Jones at kjones@theloftstage.org ASAP so we can arrange an alternative audition time.

    Prior to auditioning, actors and actresses must complete the following online form: https://goo.gl/forms/olFLqwf0SVlAtw1F2

    Auditions will take place Monday, August 27th and Tuesday, August 28th at 3:30pm in the Loft Stage. Students need only come to one of these two audition days – we encourage returning Lofties to audition on Monday if at all possible. For the audition, students may prepare a song in the vocal styling of the show or learn a song (“Do You Hear the People Sing?”) from Les Mis at auditions. Sheet music for that selection is attached for perusal. Auditions will also include brief acting exercises and there a dance call, both Monday and Tuesday nights from 6:30-8:30pm. Pease wear comfortable clothing and footwear.

    Callbacks will be Wednesday, August 29th at 3:30pm in the choir room (rm. 1055). As students prepare for and consider the many dynamic roles this production has to offer, please do not feel limited by the age and/or gender of characters. The creative team is open to actor interpretations and risk-taking.

    Any additional questions regarding auditions can be sent to director Kajsa Jones (kjones@theloftstage.org) or assistant director Katie Carlson (kcarlson@theloftstage.org).

    Congratulations to the Cast, Crew and Orchestra of Joseph

    Once again, I want to congratulate you all on your hard work and dedication to our production. Keep in mind that all artistic feedback is subjective and there are many factors that contribute. I hope you’ll use this as an opportunity to both feel encouraged and find the areas where you can continue to grow as young artists! Please meet in the choir room following the LoftPAC meeting tomorrow (Friday) to go over our feedback together.

    I’m available for any and all questions and continue to be as proud of you as ever.

    – Kajsa
