Yes it is time for our reeds got talent show!! So many auditioned last year and I am sure there will be more this year. We must stick to the rules though and I have included them here. Reminder that although this is a Humanities fund raiser, the whole school is allowed to audtion. The Humanities 8th graders get to run the whole show though. They get to be host, crew, stage managers etc. But what makes this great is that the whole school is allowed to participate. I have included what I am posting outside my room. I am so looking forward to this, as every year. Still working on our teacher act!!!
PLEASE TAKE THIS INFORMATION AND READ BEFORE YOU AUDITION!
RULES WILL BE FOLLOWED!!
IF YOU CANNOT MAKE ALL THE REHEARSALS, (AND THERE ARE ONLY 2 BEFORE THE ACTUAL SHOW), THEN YOU MAY NOT BE IN THE SHOW.
JUST BECAUSE YOU AUDITION, OR WERE IN THE SHOW BEFORE DOES NOT GUARANTEE A SPOT IN THE SHOW THIS YEAR. WE HAVE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF SPACE FOR THE SHOW AND NEED TO PICK A VARIETY OF ACTS EVEN IF THEY ARE ALL GOOD.
IF YOU WANT TO AUDITION SIGN UP BELOW. YOU MUST SIGN UP BEFORE THE AUDITION.
AUDITION DATE SEPT 11 FROM 3 TO 5
THIS IS A COMPLETELY STUDENT RUN SHOW. LIGHTS, CREW, ACTS, MICS, HOSTS,AND CHOOSING ACTS ARE BY STUDENTS. THIS IS WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL. EACH YEAR IT GETS BIGGER AND BETTER!! WHICH MEANS WE MUST HAVE MORE RULES THAT NEED TO BE FOLLOWED.
RULES AND IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Your audition on September 11th will only be about 1 to 2 minutes long. You may schedule an audition with Ms Szymanski before the audition date. That means come during nutrition or lunch to show her your act. YOU MUST SIGN UP TO AUDITION AND CANNOT JUST SHOW UP THE DAY OF THE AUDITION OR AFTER THE AUDITION.
At the audition there will be no mics to sing. You will sing either with your own ITouch or phone. It will not be great quality, but we just need to see what you are doing. Dancers with music, please bring it on a CD as we will just play it on a boom box. Your act does not have to be perfected. If picked you will work on it on your own and it needs to be ready to go by the first tech rehearsal date No costumes are necessary to audition.
Bands may show me a video or your band playing and not have to come to the audition. This must be done before the audition date.
NO ONE WILL BE SEEN TO AUDITION AFTER SEPTEMBER 11TH!!
Those picked to be in the show will be listed outside of room 217 one or two days after the audition. if you then choose not to be in the show I just know asap!!
AUDITIONING DOES NOT GUARANTEE BEING IN THE SHOW!! WE HAVE LOTS OF PEOPLE AUDITIONING AND CANNOT HAVE A VERY LONG SHOW SO WE HAVE TO MAKE CUTS! THAT IS SHOW BIZ!!
IMPORTANT!!! ACTS CAN BE NO LONGER THAN 2 MINUTES!!!! END OF STORY!!
Pianists will have a piano to play on.
When you get selected
You must be available for all the rehearsals. we have very few of them. Only two before the show. PARENTS AND STUDENTS DO NOT ASK FOR YOUR CHILD OR FOR YOU TO LEAVE EARLY FROM ANY OF THE REHEARSALS. If they have to sit for two hours and wait to go on stage, then that is what they have to do. I cannot make exceptions, it is not fair to everyone else and for my crew who have to work out the details of the show.
Anyone using background music, you must have your music burned on two discs. The ones that work best are the CD-r pro. Test your music on more than one device. At tech rehearsal if it does not work, you must have a working copy to Ms Szymanski by two days later so we can test it. Your name, and song should be written on the disc.
Anyone using props must bring their own. We might have tables and chairs, but special things you must bring.
Bands must supply their own equipment except for mics. we will have those.
With in 2 days you must email me the name of your song and what you are doing. It should be the same thing you did in your audition.
This is the time for my crew to figure out when to open curtains etc. It is the least fun rehearsal, but very important. You might not even get to perform much. It is for hosts to se a bit of your act and for the crew to figure out lighting etc. HAVE PATIENCE!!
During this time we try to run the show in order without stop. That doesn’t always work, but we try. This means full costumes, music and props.
NO INAPPROPRIATE LYRICS OR COSTUMES ALLOWED!! WE KNOW WHAT THAT IS!1
PERFORMERS ARE REQUIRED TO STAY FOR THE ENTIRE DRESS REHEARSAL SO THAT MY CREW CAN GIVE NOTES AT THE END!! DO NOT ASK TO LEAVE!!
Day of show!!
ALL PERFORMERS ARE REQUIRED TO STAY FOR THE ENTIRE SHOW.!! IT IS IMPORTANT TO SUPPORT EVERYONE IN THE SHOW. AND BESIDES THE TEACHERS PERFORM AT THE END AND IT IS ALWAYS GREAT!!
