Eckstein Musical Auditions-Feb 7 & 8

The Lightning Thief!

AUDITION INFORMATION

Auditions: February 7th, 3:55 pm – 5:30 pm & February 8th, 2:45 pm – 5:30 pm

Audition order will be first come, first seen. Come in after school & sign up for a slot!
(Each student only needs to attend one of the audition days, and is released after their audition.)

Callbacks will be held on February 9th from 3:55 pm – 6:00 pm for those we would like to see
read for specific roles. If you are not called back, it does not mean you are not in the show.

The characters in this play are mythical gods and heroes and can be anyone!
All roles are open to Eckstein students of all
ethnicities, genders and levels of experience!
There are both singing and non-solo singing parts to play!

Location:

Eckstein Middle School Auditorium (subject to change, keep an ear to the announcements!)

What you need to prepare:

~ Short speech or monologue about 30 seconds long (memorized).
If that is tricky, a nursery rhyme that tells a story works fine! (like “Jack and Jill” or “Humpty Dumpty”) If you have questions about whether something will work, email the address at the bottom of this page for help! We want you to feel ready!
~ 30 seconds to 1 minute of a song from a musical (memorized).
(NOTE: If you only want to be considered for a non-solo-singing role, you can audition without a song.)
Please bring in either piano sheet music or an accompaniment track (karaoke-style)
to sing along with. If you are unsure how to do that, the directing team has a selection of
four tracks you can choose from if you don’t have one of your own, just email us for help!

What you need to bring with you:

~ A recent picture of yourself for the directors. (Can be a photocopy, as long as it is clear!)
~ Completed audition form. Packets are available in the office, but we will also have
some available on audition days in case you don’t get one before.
