High School Production – West Side Story
Auditions for West Side Story will be Saturday, April 28 from 10am-1pm and Sunday, April 29 from
1 pm-3pm in the Homestead Theater (you do not need to attend both days). Please bring a prepared song – 16 measures – and your summer schedule! We must know what conflicts you will have with the rehearsal schedule. Rehearsals will be primarily Monday through Thursday evenings from 6:30-9:30, with a few possible Saturday rehearsals if necessary. Production dates are June 21-24 and 28-July 1. Readings will be provided at the auditions. You are welcome to bring an accompanist, although one will be provided. For more information call the Depot Theater Company at 620-225-1001, or email John.

Audition Dates & Times: May 14 & 15, 2018 at 7:00 pm
Audition Location: Homestead Theater
201 E. Wyatt Earp Blvd. Dodge City, KS 67801
Requirements: Students leaving the 3rd grade through students leaving the 8th grade are eligible to audition. Auditionees will be required to learn a song from the script itself prior to auditioning. The audition sheet music is available to print off at the bottom of this page.
Students will also be asked to learn a short dance and read from the script on the actual audition day. British accents will be required for James, Spiker, Sponge and some ensemble parts. If a student is interested in one of the characters mentioned, auditioning with an accent during the reading portion only would be advised.
We will start rehearsals in early June, rehearsing 4-5 nights per week. While not all actors are called to every rehearsal in the beginning, as we get closer to the performances, all actors will be expected to attend the remaining rehearsals.
The performance dates are during our Dodge City Days. There will be five performances, August 2-5: Thurs, Fri, Sat at 7:30pm and Sat & Sun at 2:00pm.
