Auditions for the musical–“You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown”–are coming soon! Auditions will be held on Thursday, January 5, from 6:30-9:30 pm in the auditorium. Anyone interested in being on the tech team must come to the auditions. There will be a tech meeting from 6:30-6:45 pm. If you cannot come Thursday night, you must contact Mrs. Sinnard and come Friday, January 6, at 7:00 a.m.
Anyone in grades 7-12 may audition and you do NOT have to be in choir to audition for the musical. At the audition you need to bring a solo with you or be prepared to sing a familiar song with Mrs. Sinnard, read some lines, and act like “a kid.” Dancing is very minimal in this musical, so you will not have to dance in auditions. This is a very fun musical with 12 leads and an unlimited amount of ensemble members. If you have questions, please see Mrs. Sinnard.
