Please stop by the SHS Choir room
after school on Friday to pick up your script and other information.
To those students who did not get cast
First of all, thank you so much for trying out for Scapino!
I know that you are very disappointed and Im
really sorry that we couldnt use ALL of you in the show.
So why didnt I get cast?
Below are some of the reasons that students didnt get picked for this year's show:
Not Prepared Some actors did not attend the informational meeting or contact Mr. Huber about what was expected. You just didnt seem prepared or invested in being in this show. Next time, put a little more energy into your preparation.
Not what I asked for Some actors gave good auditions, but they did not give me what I asked for. I asked to see a comic monologue with LOTS of movement.
Projection Although everyone had a nice voice, some actors spoke very softly. The Performing Arts Center is very large and it is important to have actors who can project.
Difficulty following directions I asked some actors to perform their monologue or scene a little differently. Some actors had trouble following directions or changing their performance. It is important to be able to adapt and change as an actor.
Expression Some actors had a hard time smiling and looking like they were having fun (I know you were scared). I was looking for actors who looked like they were having a good time or had a cheery disposition.
Small show There simply arent enough parts to go around for all the talent who tried out.
Please, dont be discouraged Not getting a part does NOT mean you are not talented. There are so many reasons that people dont get cast. If you would like to know what to do to make your audition better or why you didnt get cast in this show, please feel free to email me or arrange a time to meet with me. I will be glad to discuss your audition with you and let you now what worked, what didnt, and what to work on for next time.
IMPORTANT: I really hope that all of you who tried out will try and become involved in the show in some other capacity. You are great students and obviously have a passion for theater. Come join us and be part of the fun.
again for auditioning!
I AM A THEATRE KID.
I believe that I have done something today to make me feel proud. I believe that I gotta go to a restaurant after the show no matter how late it is. I believe all theatre kids love helium, or at least listening to their friends on helium. I believe that Jones Soda is the answer to all life's problems. I believe that someone else's hat is the ultimate accessory.
believe that West Ottawa Theatre is the best choice out of all theatre
programs. I believe Diva's room is the best place to be when you're feeling
down. I believe that Harvey is the coolest 6 foot 2 inch
tall invisible Rabbit ever. I believe that all the talented people that always
get leads in the plays are going somewhere big and fast, and yet I will never
forget it all started with each of us standing in the dark onstage.
I believe in the Golden Age of Chocolate. I believe in the Vocalaires birthday song. I believe that Nathan is in Pittsburgh with a rare tropical aunt. I believe Aunt Polly deserves her cookies. I believe no one really knows how we manage to pull off an amazing show. I believe in the dog from Annie Jr. I believe in wearing the shirt for the play the day after you get it and the day before opening night. I believe that the world should randomly burst into song and dance because that would be really cool.
I believe in fishing in the Mississippi River. I believe water is an element. I believe the best memories are the ones you can't explain; you just had to be there. I believe that every time someone sneezes we all yell bless you. I believe that the farmers and the cowboys can be friends. I believe in break-a-leg-buddies. I believe in an experience so amazing you'll want to be part of it forever. I believe in not only the cast, but the hard working crew and adults. I believe your work is our play. I believe in craps.
I believe in checking the drama club and the school play's Facebook pages throughout the day. I believe it's never too late to be brand new. I believe I less than three all the people involved in WO theatre. I believe that our versions of the songs are better than the originals. I believe in sitting down because you're rocking the boat. I believe in the rainbow car. I believe that awkward theatre hugs are awkward.
I believe in laughing to myself whenever
someone says "Lying is a Sin" and I believe there is nothing wrong
with getting strange looks. I believe that we can kill the pig. I believe that
Robin Hood oughta be in the Bible. I believe in going into the woods. I believe
that we make magic. I believe you're never fully dressed without a smile. I
believe that theatre people applaud because that's just what theatre people do.
I believe that it is a beautiful morning and a beautiful day. I believe that
Emma is backstage God.
I believe that happiness is as simple as sitting in the
choir room, Diva's room, or the makeup room with your friends and watching the
play on a tiny TV. I believe there is nothing wrong with being obsessed with
something, especially if that something is so amazingly fun. I believe that as
far as Lord Of The Flies goes it's about the journey and experience
whether our show is actually good or not, although I believe in us and think it
will be fun to perform and to see. I believe in a community of dorky, fun,
carefree teens that attend West Ottawa High School and share the love of drama.
I believe in my theatre family. I believe that even though we sometimes look like fools, we have the most fun. I believe that theatre is the island of misfit toys. I believe that this must be what it feels like to have a home. I believe that we do for fun what others fear more than death. I believe that I am not alone. I believe I can do anything (or be anyone) because I have these awesome people backing me up. I believe in myself. I believe in West Ottawa Theatre.
