Middle School play and Middle School musical auditions!

The ASA Theatre Department invites all 5th - 8th-grade students to audition for the Middle School play and Middle School musical.  Auditions for the play are Wednesday and Thursday, August 23 and 24, with callbacks Friday, August 25.  Auditions for the musical are Monday and Tuesday, August 28 and 29 with callbacks on Wednesday, August 30. Students may audition for one or both.  If students are auditioning for both shows, we encourage you to sign up for a Tuesday audition time for the musical, so it does not conflict the play's rehearsal
 Families need to complete and submit the audition application and sign up online for an audition time.  The audition applications are attached to this announcement.  Links to sign up for an audition time are listed below.  Callbacks will be scheduled by the directors after the initial auditions.
