TIGER DRAMA AUDITIONS &
OPENING NIGHT SHOWCASE 2022
Auditions September 12 or 13
Each year our season starts with 'Opening Night'. Students bring their own selection of material to audition for potential use in the showcase. We encourage a variety of material: from solo musical to monologues and duo scenes, dance selections, and even pantomime and student written pieces. It is important to remember this is a theatre showcase, not a talent show. We take the selected pieces and weave them together to create a unique and exciting showcase similar to industry showcases at the collegiate level.
OPENING NIGHT AUDITION EXPECTATIONS:
Pieces should be ACTING BASED - preferably from a play/musical.
Pieces should be memorized and blocked/staged prior to auditioning.
We may choose to ask you to take your piece in a completely different direction (solos become trios, add a character...)
For musical selections, you must provide your own musical accompaniment track or play your own instrument.
A short rehearsal period necessitates students be available for ALL after-school blocking/work-shopping rehearsals.
Auditions September 27 or 28
Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle ingeniously charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors and her ex. With the support of some new friends, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.
SENSE & SENSIBILITY
Auditions January 9 or 10
A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality. SENSE AND SENSIBILITY examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?
CLOSING NIGHT SHOWCASE
Auditions May 1 or 2
Closing Night is the culmination and celebration of our season. Similar to Opening Night, we audition selections for potential use in the evening. Closing Night is also where we honor our new Thespians, students who have received their drama letters, honor our seniors, and announce the new season for the following year.
