Great turn out. Great energy. Smiling faces. Good stuff! Thank you to all who took the time to audition. That was a first Zoom audition for me, and I think it went fantastically!
Some of you may have been called back for more than one role. Please note, just because your name appears under a specific role, that does not mean that is the only role I am considering you for. Tomorrow, the routine will basically be the same, except you will be reading scenes with others. I will likely create breakout rooms in order for scene partners to read through scenes prior to auditioning. *BE SURE TO JOIN ZOOM THROUGH YOUR SCHOOL GOOGLE ACCOUNT. The Zoom info will be emailed to you.
For this callback, I am making both scripts available to you. Feel free to read each script, but you will obviously be focusing on the character(s) you have been called back for. Find the appropriate scenes and become familiar with them. If your character is in multiple scenes, well, get to know all those scenes! I will be letting you know what scene/moment I would like you to read, and who you will read with, when we first gather on Zoom. I have indicated “Southern accents” for a couple characters. Do some research (You can look up Missouri accent on YouTube) and do your best! I may consider other accents for other roles after casting is complete.
Here is the link to the scripts (you have to be signed into your school Google account): https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1hCw4Tyi1DzqP7xscUBrKrUS1C2l-f7p-?usp=sharing
