With schools being closed the rest of the year, our auditions will be virtual. We will do these live via Google Meet during scheduled audition appointments on May 7 & 8. Please read EVERYTHING in this document, as it contains lots of essential information.
Every student must fill out the digital audition form here: https://forms.gle/4JiMgDrEv3Qow9LU9
If you already filled it out before schools closed, you do not need to do it again. If you are unsure please email Mr. Langlois to verify. Only students who put Productions Company on their registration form and meet the prerequisites are eligible to audition.
We will use two of the original SCENES given to students in their audition packets in February. We will only use the scenes with 2 characters. We will NOT be using the monologues.
There are 2 available scenes (Baloo/Bagheera and Shere Khan/Tabaqui). For one of the scenes you can pick which character you want to perform. In the other scene the character will be picked for you. You will act BOTH the scenes via Google Meet with Mr. Langlois.
SCENES DO NOT NEED TO BE MEMORIZED, but you should be familiar with them so you aren’t staring at your paper.
HERE ARE THE VIRTUAL AUDITION SCENES
You will schedule your audition appointment from the available audition slots on Google Calendar. Auditions are Thursday May 7 9:00 AM-12:00 and Friday May 8 1:00 PM-4:00 PM.
Please only sign up for ONE slot. Each slot will have a unique Google Meet link for your audition. Be sure to type your name AND AlpineSD email address when signing up for a slot. Your Google Meet link will be emailed to you and the event will be added to your Google Calendar. If you do not have access to a phone or webcam to use Google Meet or you cannot audition during one of the assigned slots, please email Mr. Langlois immediately.
The link for your Google Meet will be emailed to you and can be accessed from your Google Calendar. Please log in at exactly your assigned time. If you try and log in and it says you must wait, PLEASE WAIT. We may be running a minute or two behind, but we will be there. I will let you into the video chat when we are ready for you. DO NOT BE LATE!! We won’t wait for you past your scheduled audition window.
TIPS FOR SETTING UP YOUR AUDITION
Here are some helpful tips for your audition:
- Make sure your camera and microphone work BEFORE you try and log in
- If possible, go to a quiet spot where you won’t be interrupted and we can hear you clearly
- Try and be in a well-lit area. If possible, don’t stand with a window behind you. It makes it hard to see your face.
- Stand back far enough so we can see you from the waist up in the camera.
- Practice your audition in front of your camera so you can see where to stand and how loud you need to be.
- It’s preferred that you audition by yourself (there will be another teacher on the Google Meet with me). If you need someone to hold the camera, you can have ONE other person silently in the room holding it.
You will be scored by Mr. Langlois and another teacher (Mrs. Anderson, drama teacher at Vista Heights) who will be on the video chat. Your audition will be recorded so I can review it again if needed. If you would like a copy of your audition emailed to you, please let me know. Your audition will be scored by each of us using this rubric:
Scores will be totaled and used to help determine casting. If you would like to review your audition after the class list is created, please email Mr. Langlois
The class list for Productions Company will be posted on WarriorDrama.com on Monday May 10. The list will be in alphabetical order. Roles will be determined later in the summer. Whether you make the class or not, you are welcome to review your audition with Mr. Langlois. Please send me an email to schedule an audition review. If you do not make the class I will recommend you for either Drama 1 or Drama 2, depending on your skill level and previous classes you have taken.
If you have any more questions, please email Mr. Langlois firstname.lastname@example.org Break a leg!
