Hairspray auditions!



As we are approaching the new academic year, I think it's now time to start thinking about our forthcoming production of Hairspray! The dates of the auditions are as follows:


Friday 4 September: 2.40pm onwards
Years 7-9 in the Hall – Dancing
Years 10-11 in the Music block – Singing



Monday 7 September: 3.25pm onwards
Years 7-9 in the Music block – Singing
Year 10-11 in the Hall – Dancing



Wednesday 9 September: 3.25pm
All Sixth form auditions – meet in the Hall




Recalls will take place on Thursday 10 and Friday 11 September – times to be arranged.


We are looking for a large cast with a wide range of talents and abilities so everyone who wants to take part needs to come to both the Singing and the Dancing audition – please don’t just attend one of them. Energy, enthusiasm and commitment are as important as talent!


You need to be able to commit to the rehearsal schedule below if you want to be in the cast. Rehearsals should only be missed in exceptional circumstances so that we can make this a brilliant production. Please come and see Miss Shepherd or Miss Doan if you have any questions.



We hope to see you at the auditions!

All rehearsals are after school from 3.25pm-5pm (Monday-Thursday) and 2.40pm-4.15pm (Fridays). This schedule is available via email or Google Docs on request.
