At every audition, my belief in the tremendous talent in the students of Bexley City Schools is reaffirmed, and the audition for this play was no exception. Many students auditioned, and the acting was simply FABULOUS! All students who auditioned should be commended for having the guts to audition in front of their peers.
Casting this play was extremely difficult, and we thought long and hard about every role. I have been dreading casting because I am cutting not only talented performers, but also students who are hard-working, dedicated, creative, collaborative people that I would love to work with. The auditions were so fabulous, I even had to cut many students who I put "Cast!" next to in my notes. If you were cut, please know you can still be on crew. Please fill out the crew interview form and go to the Schottenstein Theater (HS Theater) tomorrow, Wed Aug 31 at 3:45PM. Also keep in mind that It may seem like it's a long time away, but Newsies auditions will be here before you know it (November 1-3), plus there will be a MS one act this year with a huge cast. We are so hoping everyone who auditioned for this play will audition again this year.
Please stop by the Dargusch after school on Wed, Aug 31 to pick up your script and then head to the HS Library to get your picture taken for the program. There will also be rehearsal for everyone other than Carlotta on Thursday, Sept 1 from 3:45-5:00PM in the Dargusch. Rehearsal calendars will be emailed to both parent and student emails soon, and students will be added to a Cases of Mistaken Identity Canvas page with more information about tickets, bios, pay to play fees, meal fees, merch and more. Please let me know if a cast member cannot attend this first rehearsal.
Thank you again to everyone who auditioned. Bexley is truly a talented place!
