Preparations for the spring play are beginning, and auditions will be held after school on February 5, 6, and 7.
This year’s performance is the stage version of Footloose. It’s similar to the 1980s film with Kevin Bacon but with music similar to what is performed on Broadway.
Students will gather in the auditorium on each audition day to sing and act. A prepared piece is not required, but students can prepare a monologue or solo act to demonstrate their skills. Students who want a lead role will need to practice singing at home.
“Students should audition if they have ever felt remotely interested in a musical. Anyone serious about participating can be in the show,” said Wishart.
Other than being on stage, there are many ways to help with production. More information is going to be on flyers, in the morning announcements and outside of Wishart’s classroom. Any students interested can also email Wishart with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
