Auditions will be on Tuesday, January 18 and Thursday, January 20 in the LMS Library due to the vaccine clinic on Tuesday from 2:30-4pm.
Here is the link to a sample script. We will use this for auditions. Please download it to your phone or computer or print out a copy to use at auditions.
Also here is a synopsis of the show:
“Now you can join the craze that’s sweeping the land with this hysterical alien spoof!The Meteorite Inn is located on a lonely stretch of desert highway. The owners of the shabby inn, Doug and his sister, Peggy, decide to capitalize on the fact that they’re close to a restricted zone known only as ’Area 502.’ (Rumor has it the government keeps an alien prisoner housed there!) The hotel’s dining room specialty becomes ’Marsburgers’ and they rent out the conference room to Hyacinth Muggleworth, a rather eccentric lady who’s holding a UFO convention. Before you can say ’Independence Day,’ the Meteorite Inn is overflowing with excited UFO believers and speakers who claim they’ve been abducted by aliens and held prisoner in spaceships! The army moves in and quarantines the place as ’aliens’ turn up uninvited. After all, who knows if they are real or fake? As the military continues to confuse matters, everyone gets involved: poor Mayor Mintweed goes cuckoo; Mabel Shoemaker, snapping string beans one minute, finds herself being jabbed with alien fingernails the next; Sheriff Chickamauga tries to figure things out as he munches on a doughnut. Will your audiences gasp as an alien autopsy is performed in front of their eyes? Will they shiver as an alien starship hovers overhead and visitors put their diabolical plans on ’forward’? Without a doubt, they will burst with laughter as the UFO conventioneers go ballistic and the secret of the restricted zone is revealed. The show is easy to stage, with many small roles that require only minimal rehearsal. With its hilarious action and funny dialogue, this play is out of this world! You could even say it’s X-cellent!”
Students who wish to audition can meet in the library after school and do homework or go to other clubs or ask for extra help immediately after school. We will go to the cafeteria at 2:30 for auditions.
Please try and attend both audition days. If you can only attend one day, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can make sure that we get your audition in on the day you are there.
Cast list will be posted at 4pm on Friday, January 21. I will send out an email with the list and the list will also be posted at littletonmiddleschooldrama.com .
Everyone gets a part. There are 35 speaking roles in the show. There are characters with lots of lines and some with only a few.
Rehearsals will be Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-4pm (unless otherwise noted). Students may stay after school and do homework in the library right after school and then we will go downstairs to the cafeteria or stay in the library for rehearsal. Students will only need to attend rehearsals that they are involved in.
Please read through the Audition form and Contract and bring to auditions, signed. Also, check the rehearsal and performance schedule. If you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com with any questions.
