Special to the
Opelika Observer

Auburn Area Community Theatre invites youth ages 13 to 18 to audition on Dec. 9 and 10 for the smash hit movie musical that will come to life on stage: Disney’s High School Musical Jr. Troy, Gabriella and the students of East High must deal with issues of love, friends and family while balancing their classes and extracurricular activities. The show’s infectious, danceable songs are sure to engage performers and audiences alike.
Auditions will take place each day from 4 to 7 p.m. Please come prepared to present a one-minute (or less) monologue and sing 30 seconds of an acapella song. A number from a Broadway Musical is preferred.
There will also be a dance and movement portion of the audition. Casting will be flexible and diverse, not identical to the movie, so don’t be afraid to bring us your original ideas for your character. You may sign up for an audition time slot online at www.auburnact.org, or simply show up at auditions and get the next available opening. Online sign-up is highly recommended. High school graduates will not be accepted..
Callbacks, by invitation only, will be held Dec. 12 from 4 to 7 p.m. Rehearsals will be Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m. on Dec. 16 and Jan. 6 to Feb. 19 and Saturdays from 9 a.m. until noon from Jan. 4 to Feb. 22.
Technical and dress rehearsals will be Feb. 24 to 27h from 4 to 9 p.m. Performances will be Feb. 28 and 29 and March 2, 5 and 7 at 6:30 p.m. and Feb. 29 and March 7 at 2 p.m.
You can access audition tips, rehearsal attendance policy, audition slot sign-up and more information at www.auburnact.org. We look forward to showcasing this energetic and infectious show.
