Auditions will be held for the 2014 Variety show on Wednesday, April 9th and Thursday, April 10th from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in Pendery Theater. The 4-4:30 slots on BOTH days will be for 8th Graders who want to audition for the EMCEE parts ONLY. Sign-ups for all students, grades 5-8, will go up in the mirrored hallway next to the auditorium on Wednesday, March 26th before spring break. 8th graders who want to EMCEE and be in an act will be able to audition for both. Everyone else will be limited to one act. The theme this year is simply “ROCK AND ROLL!” However, the acts do not need to follow this theme. Only acts that are completely prepared and rehearsed will be considered for the show. Please keep your act under 4 minutes. Due to many of us needing the Pendery space, a rehearsal schedule will be posted later. For now, please start prepping your acts, and we will see you on the 9th and 10th! The Variety Show will be held on May 2nd and 3rd in Pendery Center.
