2017 Spring Musical Announcement and Auditions

2017 Spring Musical

the-boy-friend-2017

We are excited to announce our 2017 Spring Musical, Sandy Wilson’s “The Boy Friend.”

The Jazz Age lives on in this light romantic spoof of 1920s musical comedy. Written in the fifties as “a new musical of the twenties, The Boy Friend has a catchy jazzy score and opportunities for many dance numbers.

Auditions will be held on January 10th and 11th (Tuesday and Wednesday) from 3:10-4:30pm. Click the link below to sign up for an audition time. Enter your first and last name into ONE time slot, and arrive ten minutes before your audition. Callbacks, if necessary, will be held on January 12th (Thursday) after school.

Click here to access the audition music. There are two pieces each for men and women. Each auditionee should choose one to perform, but be prepared to sing either if asked. Check the Spotify link below to listen to the original cast recording.

(Note: there is a movie called “The Boy Friend,” which features much of the same music, but a vastly different plot. While entertaining, this movie would not be a good reference for preparing for your audition.)

Audition packets (including monologues) will be available when we return for second semester.
