    Audition and Production Information

    AUDITIONS ARE RESCHEDULED: Wednesday, February 2 (3:45pm-6:00pm)

    CALL-BACK AUDITIONS: Monday, February 7 (3:45pm-6:00pm)
    Students will be invited to the Call-back Auditions based on the initial auditions.

    Auditions and the Meeting will take place in the Auditorium.

    AUDITION REQUIREMENTS:
    Auditions will consist of:
    SINGING: Performance of the Audition Song. Students should prepare the audition song, "Solla Sollew." The sheet music, practice track with vocals, and piano only accompaniment track are under The Stafford Players Files on this page.
    ACTING: Performance of the Audition Scenes. Students should practice these scenes prior to auditions. It is recommended that students read the character descriptions and synopsis to be familiar with the characters and story. They should also give thought as to which characters for which they are best suited. Students do not have to memorize these scenes, but should be very familiar with the text of the scenes.
    DANCING: Students will be taught a basic dance combination at auditions. Time will be allowed to practice the routine, and then students will perform it in groups of 5 to 10 students at a time. (Dance experience is not necessary! We are looking to see how students learn dance steps.)
    STUDENTS SHOULD BE DRESSED TO MOVE/DANCE AT AUDITIONS.

    MATERIALS FOR AUDITIONS:
    Production Information, Participation Form, Character Descriptions, Story Synopsis, and Audition Scenes are available on under The Stafford Players Files below this post.

    NOTE TO PARENTS REGARDING THE PARENT MEETING & VOLUNTEERING:
    Your student has auditioned for SEUSSICAL – The Stafford High School Spring Musical. If he/she is cast, we ask that you attend the Parent Meeting on Wednesday, March 23 at 7pm. The purpose of this meeting is to organize support for this production. Without the support of parents, we would be unable to provide great opportunities for students in theater at Stafford High School.
