TIGER DRAMA AUDITIONS &
OPENING NIGHT SHOWCASE 2021
Auditions September 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.
THE SPONGEBOB MUSICAL
Auditions September 27 or 28
The stakes are higher than ever in this dynamic stage musical, as SpongeBob and all of Bikini Bottom face the total annihilation of their undersea world. Chaos erupts. Lives hang in the balance. And just when all hope seems lost, a most unexpected hero rises up and takes center stage. The power of optimism really can save the world!
Auditions January 10 or 11
Described by Edward Albee as "the greatest American play ever written," Our Town presents the small town of Grover’s Corners in three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage" and "Death and Eternity." Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, the play depicts the simple daily lives of the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre – die.
CLOSING NIGHT SHOWCASE
Auditions May 2 or 3
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.
