    PRE-AUDITION MEETING: Wednesday, August 18 (3:45pm-4:45pm) This is the Theater Club Meeting, at which we will be discussing the audition process and materials, and the production. Attendance at this meeting is not mandatory, but it is recommended.

    AUDITIONS: Thursday, August 19 (3:45pm-5:45pm)

    CALL-BACK AUDITIONS: Thursday, August 26 (3:45pm-5:45pm) 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:

    • 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.
    • MOVEMENT: Students will participate in very basic movement exercises and improvisations based on the animals and other characters in the play.
    • STUDENTS SHOULD BE DRESSED TO MOVE AT AUDITIONS.

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

    SEVEN IN ONE BLOW Audition Form 

    STUDENT PARTICIPATION & PARENT NOTIFICATION FORM: In order to be considered for casting in this play, a student must submit a completed Student Participation and Parent Notification Form by Friday, August 20. NO STUDENT WILL BE CAST WITHOUT SUBMITTING THIS FORM. It is available with the audition files under The Stafford Players Files on the Stafford Players web page.

    NOTE TO PARENTS REGARDING THE PARENT MEETING & VOLUNTEERING: Your student has auditioned for 7 IN ONE BLOW, or The Brave Little Kid – The Stafford High School Fall Show. If he/she is cast, we ask that you attend the Parent Meeting on Thursday, September 30 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.
