Please be aware that occasional changes might be necessary throughout the year. We will always make an announcement if there are any changes.
You have TWO forms to fill out linked below.
- Make sure to fill out this audition form BEFORE you audition. You need to be signed into your School Google account to fill out the audition form.
- You also need to fill out a Drama Commitment Contract.
- Either pick one up from Miss Gibson in her room, the main office OR click here to print out a copy and fill it out.
Make sure to bring the filled out Drama Commitment Contract with you to auditions.
Please read the committment contract over carefully and list any dates that conflict with the drama rehearsal schedule on page 2 of your Drama Commitment Contract. This form must be signed by BOTH you and your parent/guardian and brought to auditions.
AUDITIONS: Thursday, April 8

You do not need to stay the entire time. Once your audition is over, you will be free to leave. You can come anytime between 3:00 PM and 4:15 PM.
Play information: Appropriate Audience Behavior by Ian McWethy
Carol and Ashley are expecting a tale of woe as they take their seats to watch Hamlet, but the real tragedy is that they're sitting next to the world's noisiest weirdos. The audience takes the spotlight as everyone from a cough-drop obsessive to a guy watching the play like a football game steals the show from the unseen Shakespearean masterpiece. An outrageously meta comedy that reminds us where the drama belongs--onstage.
If you are only interested in being on the Tech Crew, you do not need to come to auditions, you just need to return your commitment contract to Miss Gibson and and fill out an audition form by the audition dates. You can drop your signed committment contract off in the main office to be put in Miss Gibson's mailbox. Please, be aware that this production may not require a very large tech crew.
Drama WILL conflict with spring sports: softball, baseball, and track. You will NOT be able to do drama and a sport.
If you have any questions or if any conflicts arise *after* you have committed to Drama, please have your parent/guardian email Miss Gibson ASAP and/or provide her with a written note explaining the conflict.
