STAR-WARS-DRAMA-LOGO

DRAMA MAMAS and PAPAS WANTED  

FOR HELP WITH the spring musical!

May 4, 5, 10, 11, 12 at 7 p.m. and matinee at 2:00* p.m. on 5/12

See what jobs are available and volunteer to be part of our great parent team!  

In return, you can see the show for free that performance!  

Helpful things you can do!

  • Provide water and/or snacks on a DRESS REHEARSAL DATE: April 30, May 1, May 2 and May 3  after school
  • Provide water and/or snacks for backstage before a show (see dates above)
  • Help with the Ice Cream Social on May 12 after the matinee (TBD)
  • Help feed the cast and crew after the matinee on May 12
  • Help decorate and set up the lobby before the shows start
  • Help host/supply food for the cast party after the evening show on May 12 (50 participants...)

Jobs on the performances dates:  Be there at 6 p.m. for evening shows

  • Need one or more parents to be responsible for decorating the lobby with items provided.   This can be done ahead of time and also will involve some last minute work. Also will need  to be taken down at end of performance run.
  • Need one “GREETER” per show to stand at front door and greet people. Separate the people into the right lines — “will call tickets” and “purchase tickets at the door”. This will help make the lines move faster and also keep down the number of folks crowding into the lobby.
  • Need one “TICKET TAKER” per show to stand just inside the auditorium and take tickets for ALL people coming in the door. Simply tear the stub off and direct them to an usher, who will then seat them and provide a program. Requires making sure that people don’t crowd past you.
  • Need two or three “USHERS” per show to stand in various places in the auditorium. Help patrons find their numbered seats in the right row, help elders if needed, answer questions if needed. This should streamline getting folks seated and ready for the show to start on time.
  • Need two “CONCESSIONS SELLERS” per show to set up and sell water. Involves keeping track of inventory and money box resolution at end of night.
  • Need one “WILL-CALL TICKETS” person per show to sit at table in lobby and look up alphabetically filed envelopes containing tickets that were pre-ordered. Give the tickets to the patron and deal with any questions which arise. Direct them to the door to the ticket taker.
  • Need two “SELL TICKETS AT DOOR” people to sit at table in lobby and sell tickets to folks who come to purchase tickets that night. This involves pre-learning the computer ticketing system!!! It also will involve money handling and resolution.

We will train you and provide everything needed to do your job – just bring your enthusiasm!

annieauditionsweb1250x800

1.  LISTEN!   ACCESS TO the entire SHOW'S REHEARSAL TRACKS!  (THE MUSIC WE ARE GOING TO USE)

                CLICK HERE   

             --when you get to the log in screen, input 4b258 into the "rehearsal tracks" line.


2. Practice for AUDITION:

            BELOW (BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE):  DOWNLOAD AUDITION MATERIALS TO HELP YOU PREPARE!

                 --YOU CAN LISTEN FROM HERE, OR DOWNLOAD ONTO YOUR DEVICE TO PRACTICE.

                --Everyone will sing ALL AUDITIONEES piece 

                -- You will probably also sing one other piece--be ready to state your choice when asked. 

  •                 So, girls learn Girls and Boys Soloists #2 (Sing Rooster to start, then Hannigan breaks off into harmony), Girls #1, and Girls #2.                               
  •                 Guys learn:  Girls and Boys Soloists #2 (Sing Rooster whole way through), Boys #1 and Boys #2. 
  •                 All of these will be taught at audition practices on 1/31, 2/7, and 2/14 after school.

                --Mrs. Brant has the paper materials you need to complete that day of the audition in her classroom.

 


3. READ UP!   Go here for a good overview of the show.  See the tabs for a character list, and plot synopsis and other useful info!

http://stageagent.com/shows/musical/673/annie


 

4.  GET A MONOLOGUE!  That same website has a section of monologues, too.  You WANT TO AIM YOUR MONOLOGUE to Annie, which is set in New York in the 1930's.  (Brooklyn accent anyone?)  If you are interested in a lead part, aim even more! 

 http://stageagent.com/monologues (not all are available without sign in, but some are),

Colin's Movie Monologue Page (http://www.whysanity.net/monos/),

and Mrs. Brant's cupboard with Male and Female monologue binders are three good places to start.

Help with how to do a monologue:  CLICK HERE


 

 5. KNOW THE ENTIRE SHOW!   Two videos of the entire show:  There will be a quiz at auditions!  BE READY.

1.  Kathy Bates as Ms. Hannigan in the 1999 movie version (not the musical script, but a good look at the characters)

2.  Community Theater version of the MUSICAL SCRIPT--good for knowing the show we are going to do


 6.  KNOW THE CHARACTERS--YOU NEED TO CHOOSE YOUR TOP THREE FOR AUDITIONS: 

            Click on the links (they are on the stage agent website above, too, under characters) and they give you even more info on the character,  and even video links!
