Audition Material
Students do not need to prepare anything for advance for their audition! Students will sing a vocal warmup with Mr. Scott and then look at a lines and songs from the show. Students auditioning for larger characters will be asked to read lines and songs related to their character preferences. Students can prepare the song in advance, if desired. Auditions will be kept as short and stress free as possible!


Frequently Asked Questions

Can I be in a sport and do the musical?
Yes! Students are in sports and the musical every year! Be sure to turn in your practice/game schedules to Mr. Scott ASAP when you receive them! If schedules are turned in early, musical rehearsals can be schedule around them!

Where do rehearsals take place?
November and December rehearsals will be in the LES music room. In January, we will begin rehearsing on the stage at the high school. Students can ride the bus from LES to LHS at dismissal.

What time are rehearsals?
November and December rehearsals will generally be 3:08-4:00 or 3:08-4:30. January rehearsals will be extended leading up to opening night, and eventually move to evening rehearsals the week before the show.

Are students "cut" from the musical?
No. If you audition, we will find a spot for you in our show.

Can I help backstage?
Of course! We need a small group of hard-working students to help in our crew. This is not an easy job! You will need to return the Audition Form with the backstage box checked, and all parent information and signatures completed. Backstage students will not rehearse until January.

What will I have to do for my audition?
The answer depends on what you are auditioning for! Students auditioning for Ensemble/Group roles will be asked to sing a little, possibly read some lines, and talk about their character preferences. Students auditioning for larger roles will be asked to sing specific songs (see above) and read character lines.

When will I know what part I got?
Mr. Scott will work on the cast list after everyone has auditioned. The sooner you get your audition done, the sooner we will all know! This is a hard job, as many students will be disappointed at first. Trust Mr. Scott, and know that you'll have a great time no matter how big or small of a role you play! It takes the whole cast to tell our story. The cast list will hopefully be posted Saturday, November 18!

Costumes, T-Shirts, Concession, Tickets, Flowers ... etc.?
