Snow on This Island

Happy Snow Day, everyone!

Due to the snow day today, we will combine dance auditions and callbacks into one day: this Friday, Jan 5.

Dance auditions originally scheduled for today will now be tomorrow, Friday, January 5, 2:30-4:10. Please meet in Stretton Hall at 2:30, wearing clothes you can dance in (sneakers and clothes you can move in).

We will announce callbacks at 4:10 Friday. If you are not called back, you can leave on the first late bus. If you are called back, you should be prepared to stay and work 4:15 till 7:00, though some will not need to stay that entire time.

Thank you for your flexibility as we work around the weather.

The first rounds of auditions were fantastic. We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

An important note on audition results:

We know that auditioning for anything is courageous. It means risking being disappointed. We commend you for taking the risk, and we recognize that it can be tough when results are not what you had hoped for. Below are two great articles about reacting to audition results realistically and productively. Please take some time to read and consider these ideas. Remember that disappointments can be temporary. You are all expected to be kind, professional, and team-oriented as we work together on this show. Let’s get to the singing, dancing, and acting and have a great time starting Monday!
