Please read through the following guidelines if you are interested in joining the All School Play:
  • If you audition and can commit to our rehearsal schedule, you WILL get a part in the play. While you are welcome to let us know which parts you would like to play, we cannot guarantee you will get the part you want.
  • Participation in the All School Play is a large group effort. You, as an individual, must focus not only on your part, but also on being a productive member of the cast at all times. Students who wish to participate in this extra-curricular activity must exhibit appropriate social/emotional behavior as well as academic proficiency during the course of their school day.
There are many moving parts within the All School Play!

For the audition, we will be using the first scene in the play. It requires a range of emotions and reactions that will give us enough information to make casting decisions. 
Please keep in mind that we may ask you to try several parts. 
Please check out the Dialogue for auditions by clicking on the button below!
Choose 3 options below to perform for the audition, but be prepared for the Director to ask you for more.

“Row Row Row Your Boat” –  In a more up-tempo way than in the example above, Hades and Persephone sing. “Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, all the way – we love to hear you scream!” (Page 12 of Script)

Part of “Zero to Hero” will be sung by several actors when introducing Hercules, and interrupted partway through the Narrator. (Page 13 of Script)

The first part of the song, “Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers, will be sung by Orpheus when his love, Eurydice, does of a snake bite (page 8). Orpheus will sing just the first few lines before collapsing in sorrow. Orpheus will also sing a few lines for his final stage exit (page 13). **Bonus if the person casted as Orpheus can play this song on the guitar! 

“I Feel Pretty” will be sung a Capella by Echo – only the first three lines: “I’m so pretty, I’m so pretty, I’m so pretty and witty and a wood nymph” (Page 18 in script). 

Cicione 1 and Cicione 2 will sing “Heigh ho, heigh ho, it’s off to work we go,” (approximately 1.32 minutes into the video) a Capella as they exit the stage (Page 18 in script). **Bonus if people cast as the Ciciones can also whistle the tune!
