The Lion King Jr. Auditions

IN ORDER TO AUDITION the attached application form must be completely filled out in legible handwriting, with both the student’s signature and a parent’s or guardian signature (for grades 5-8th grade). Bring back your audition application, completely filled out and signed. Applications are turned in at the time of the audition.  You may only audition if 1) your application paper has been filled out and turned in and 2) you have signed up for an audition time (sign-ups will be posted in the high school music hallway and in or near Mrs. Rinehart’s music room) and 3) your three teacher/coach/mentor recommendation sheets have been turned in to Mrs. Picchioni or Ms. Hannon. Recommendation sheets need to be turned in ONLY if you did not participate in Shrek or Addam’s Family.

AUDITIONS: Auditions are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday August 29th-30th 3-5:30 PM with callback auditions scheduled for the following Wednesday (if necessary).  Auditions will be closed, meaning that parents and other students will not be allowed to watch. Parents may wait in the cafeteria lobby while their child is auditioning. Parents and students waiting to audition must remain in the designated space in the cafeteria lobby during auditions.  It is each auditioning student’s responsibility to sign up for an audition time/day, to show up at that time/day, and to have their transportation arranged for that time/day. Results will be posted the day after callback auditions.

PLEASE NOTE: all casting decisions are final. Parts will be assigned to the best overall prepared and performed auditions. Judges scores will remain confidential and will not be posted. Casting placements will not be debated or discussed once the final cast decision is made. Negative or jealous comments from parents/students regarding cast members or their placements will not be tolerated, and will result in the cast member being released from the play. Please understand that not everyone who auditions will be cast.
