    Cast Information
     
    Here is the information regarding auditions for those interested in being part of the cast: Audition info 
     
    Auditions will be held on August 21 and August 22 from 3:30 - 8:00 p.m. in the high school choir room. Students can pick up information packets and sign-up for an audition time by going to the middle school band room between 7:45 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday starting August 7.
     
    The auditions last ten minutes and can be done alone or in small groups. Requirements for anyone onstage include reading one or more portions of the script (you will find these in the information packets mentioned above) and to sing something for the teachers listening to the auditions. The song can be something from past solo/ensemble festivals, a choir song, something from a church service, a pop song, or even "Happy Birthday". The teachers just need to hear you sing a bit to know what part(s) would be the best fit.
     
    Pit Orchestra information
     
    Pit Orchestra rehearsal schedule for Beauty and the Beast: Pit Orch schedule
     
    Pit Orchestra books will be available for preview around Labor Day. You can get one from Mr. Janssen to look over at that time. Auditions are  held when there are more people interested in a particular part than there are parts available.
     
    Instruments needed this year include: flute/piccolo, oboe, clarinet/bass clarinet, 2 trumpets, 2 horns, trombone, 2 violins, cello, bass, percussion.
     
    If you are having a hard time deciding whether to be on stage or in the pit orchestra, do a stage audition and let Mr. Janssen know about your interest in being part of the Pit Orchestra. Once auditions are complete, you can have a conversation with the Directors about which place you'd prefer to be.
     
     
    Crew information
    The Stage Crew designs and builds the sets for the show and will begin work shortly after Labor Day. They generally meet weekdays after school two or three times per week. They also form the Running Crew for the shows. Please contact Mr. Mesoloras directly if you would like to be part of this year's Stage Crew.
