Shipoopi song


Here is the Shipoopi track to practice with.  Unfortunately, the video file is too large to upload onto the blog.  If you'd like a copy of it, come see me with a USB drive.

Student-Directed One-Acts 2017

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, MANY of you need to make cuts.  I expect those cuts to be completed and handed into to me by April 21st - NO exceptions.  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 on the first day of rehearsals.

To those auditioning, please remember these auditions will take place on Tuesday, April 11th, 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.  Thank you and can not wait to see auditions! :)
