Audition for a role in St. Ambrose Academy’s Spring Musical! Auditions are open to 6-12 graders.
Location: St. Mary of Pine Bluff, gym. 3673 County Rd. P, Pine Bluff
Date: Wednesday, October 11
Time: Junior High from 3:45-5:00. High School from 4:55-7:33. Please note that high school students will be released from auditions at different times. Study schedule carefully. Students will not be allowed to stay past their assigned audition time.
Let me know right away (email@example.com) if there is something in the schedule that isn’t correct!
What to bring: Dance shoes and water bottle
What to wear: Dress nicely for your audition. Girls, may wear their school uniform or skirt/dress that can be danced in. Boys, may wear school uniform or dress pants, button-down dress shirt or polo.
Please note: We have 72 people signed up to audition which is awesome, but a little tricky. We would like to let you all know a few things before auditions. In order to allow everyone to be cast:
1. Middle schoolers (except for Les), will need to provide their own costume with directions from us. The Newsie style is fairly easy to create from regular earth-tone clothing.
2. Most middle school cast members will be in a “kids chorus” and will be in one to two numbers.
3. Dancers (and anyone cast as a main Newsie) will need to purchase boot jazz shoes ($20-$30 on Amazon), and tap shoes if they are cast as tappers.
Also, set builds will be starting next Saturday, Oct. 14th. We need a lot of help and it’s a lot of fun! Set builds will be at Endres Manufacturing in Waunakee. Please sign up for a slot!

Please note, I tried to make an email list of everyone that has showed interest in auditioning, but I may have missed people. If you know of anyone that didn’t get the email, please forward it and also have them email me to get them on the list!
