Want to be on stage? Auditions coming up Tuesday and Wednesday!

News Blog Category - News Auditions for the first two plays of the year are set for next Tuesday and Wednesday, 6 to 8:30 Aug. 15 and 4 to 5:30 p.m. Aug. 16. 

The plays being cast are:
  • The annual one-time / $1 play / one act, which will this year feature two short scenes, "Gray Area" and "Frosh in the Pit", which both center on the theme of bullying. The performance is scheduled for Sept. 30.
  • The classic Broadway musical "Bye Bye Birdie", a fun take on the 1960s, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll. The performances are scheduled for Nov. 3 and 4.
MHS students who want to audition for either or both should plan to come to one of the days of auditions. Students who are auditioning for the musical will need to have a song prepared. You do NOT have to be in a choir class to audition. (If you are only auditioning for the shorts, not the musical, you do not have to sing at the auditions.)

All academically-eligible MHS students are welcome to audition. New faces are welcome!

See Mr. Conway or Ms. Vermilion with questions.
