The High School drama department performs a play each spring. The cast consists mainly of high school students, although we open auditions to our middle school students when our play requires younger actors. We generally begin casting in the late fall and our performances are held in early spring. Students put a lot of hours into preparing for the performance. Generally, outside casting directors are hired (or volunteer) and they are entirely repsonsible for casting the play. In this way, students experience a professional audition and are confident that every person who auditions has an equal chance of being cast in the play.
