Tryout Information for The Phantom Tollbooth

“THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH”

Tryout information:

 

There are many chances for students to participate in this fall’s LMS musical production, “The Phantom Tollbooth.”  There are singing, acting and dancing roles for everyone who wants to be in the show.  Everyone who tries out is IN the show.

 

Being in the show requires a commitment to be at the necessary rehearsals on time and prepared (with your pencil and script!). Remember that as we put together our show for its performances at the high school the weekend after Thanksgiving.

 

For the tryouts on Monday, September 17th, you should prepare:

 

  1. If you are interested in a principal role (you would sing and/or speak by yourself on stage), please learn the excerpt, “Getting To Know You.”  This song is not in the show, but will show off the skills that you’ll need for the show.  Memorizing the music is good, but I’d rather you sing it perfectly WITH the music, rather than perform it poorly because you couldn’t get it memorized.
  2. If you are interested in a supporting or ensemble role, or you just want to experience being a part of the show as a performer, but you don’t want to sing by yourself in the show, then please prepare “My Country Tis of Thee.” Once again, memorizing the music is good, but I’d rather you sing it perfectly WITH the music, rather than perform it poorly because you couldn’t get it memorized.

 

You will also be learning a small dance to see how well you move.  Everyone should do this, regardless of how well you think you dance or move.

 

On Wednesday, September 19th, SOME students will be called back to read some scenes from the play.  Not everyone will be needed, but only those students who we need to see read.  Remember, EVERYONE is cast, so if you are not called back, that merely means that we have seen what we need to in order to cast you in a role in the show.

 

More information will follow regarding:

  • Ticket sales
  • Parent meeting
  • How to get your scripts
  • And more!

 

So get excited to go on a journey into the unknown with Milo, Tock, and the Phantom Tollbooth!
