Student-Directed One-Acts Director List 2019


I wanted to say a huge congratulations to our seniors who have been chosen to direct a one-act!  I want to take this moment to remind senior that their shows MUST be between 10-12 minutes.  Knowing this, a few of you may need to make cuts, so be prepared to do so in case it is needed. You will be expected to speak with your casts about concept and expectations, as well as provide a copy of the cut script for each cast member at the cast meetings on April 11th at 2:30pm sharp.

To those auditioning, please remember these auditions will take place on Wednesday, April 10th, starting at 2:45pm and will be cast that evening.  You will need a one-minute monologue for these auditions, and if over time, may be cut off.  Additionally, to prepare you may contact any of the seniors chosen to ask about their pieces – I would do your research so you know the types of characters seniors are looking for in their shows.  Thank you and we cannot wait to see auditions! :)

Congrats to all directors!  Please go on Facebook ASAP and write a short blurb about what your piece is about so younger classmen can prepare - be prepared for their questions.  I'll see you on Wednesday RIGHT AFTER SCHOOL to chat before auditions.  Please feel free to bring snacks to share and let's make this a worthwhile and fun experience.  Auditions really are the best... :)
