Open to all OCEAN K-12 students and required to act in the play.

Tues, Nov. 28th @ RAFT classroom in BHMS (see teachers for exact location)
9:00-10:30 AM - Elementary - K-5
12:00-2:00 PM - Middle & High School - 6-12

These will be low pressure group auditions and are required to be considered for the play. Physical theatre exercises, improv, and readings from the script, if appropriate, will be part of the audition process. Students will be excused from regular classes as needed in order to participate in auditions.

As cast size is limited, not all students who audition are guaranteed an acting role but everyone is welcome to help out in a variety of other ways (see OCEAN school webpage.) Most major (speaking) roles will likely be played by Middle & High School students. Most of the Faerie realm will likely be played by Elementary students. We will also be looking for a few puppeteers who will play a smaller role in the play, with less rehearsal commitment. Casting will, in part, be informed by actor availability. Please do not audition if you have significant non-negotiable schedule conflicts (see general rehearsal / performance schedule below.) Actors will NOT be required at all scheduled rehearsals in Jan & Feb as we will often be working individual scenes. Saturdays in Feb. plus the first 2 weeks of March, expect to be at all rehearsals.

All students interesting in acting must fill out and turn in an Audition Form:

The form asks for your schedule availability / conflicts in Jan, Feb, March (Parents please verify accuracy.)

Midsummer Audition “Sides” (Short audition scenes)

5th-12th graders are encouraged to look over the character list (page 1) as well as the Audition Sides/Scenes we will likely use for readings at the auditions on Nov. 28th. Not required nor do you need to memorize or learn them well. Just feel free to look them over and try to familiarize yourself and understand what the characters are talking about.

Note to Parents/Guardians - It is fine to encourage your perhaps uncertain child to try out for the play. Even if they are not sure now, they might enjoy it much more than they think. As educators (and parents), we also want the students to stretch their comfort zone and grow. This play is happening and designed, in part, for that purpose. However, please do not force them to do it. We want actors who want to be there, not resistant cast members. The project will be fun and hopefully amazing. And it’s a team effort - both for kids and the adults supporting the project. Let’s make this a profoundly joyful experience for all! Thanks for understanding.
