Regular Rehearsal Today, Tue 1/27!

First rehearsal today! (Thanks for your cooperation, blizzard-that-missed-us!)

We’ll follow the schedule as written here until further notice.



Read-through rehearsal today, Mon 1/26, is canceled

Foiled again by snow! CHS is dismissing at 11:30am today, 1/26, so there will be no read-through today. Once we know the weather/school situation for tomorrow, Tuesday, we’ll let you know the updated rehearsal schedule. Everyone should expect to be called for all remaining rehearsals this week, including Sunday, 2/1.

Thanks for your flexibility. Can’t wait to get started, whenever it is!!!

Auditions for “9 to 5” continue Wed, Jan 7, and Thu, Jan 8, after school! We are looking for a large cast for this production. 

The show has lots of chorus numbers and many speaking roles for both men and women. You need not have any experience, know how to read music, or be in a choir to audition. You’ll get to work with a great artistic staff, including professional performer/director Deirdre Finnegan (Mr. Wilman’s wife!) and Peter Rios, dance faculty member at UArts. 

Come out to audition today or tomorrow, and encourage your friends to join in the fun!

Also, look for callbacks lists to be posted on this site tonight, Wed, Jan 7, by 10 pm.

Thanks everybody! Looking forward to dance auditions today!!
