In order to audition for these shows, you must submit a digital audition during the two week audition window referenced above. Only current freshman-juniors can audition. The audition includes:
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged Synopsis: How on earth can a group of actors do the impossible: act through Shakespeare’s entire canon --37 plays-- in 97 minutes? By summarizing the canon through football plays, rap songs, and outrageously condensed, comedy mash-up titles), of course! The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) hilariously summarizes all of Shakespeare’s plays, using reenactments and audience participation while teaching audiences facts about Shakespeare and ensuring them a rollicking good time.
FALL PLAY Synopsis: It’s right after graduation at Athens High, but before the students transition to life in the real world mayhem ensues! Mayor Theseus is getting married to his love Hippolyta and has invited the whole town! They’re looking for a community act to perform at their reception and Bottom and his cast of crack community actors think they’re up for the task! Graduates Lysa and Hermia can’t wait to start their life together, but Demetrius believes he’s destined to be with Hermia, and her father agrees! But according to Helena, the only person Demetrius is destined to be with is herself! But there’s more! Injected amidst these lovers' quarrels is a little magic in the form of the fairy rulers Oberon and Titania, their servants, and a little magic flower that tosses some chaos in every direction. This Shakespearean classic is a blast for all involved and highlights the idea that love - in all its forms - is a truly magical thing.
