Greek Mythology: Olympiaganza
Two battling narrators attempt to cover the entirety of Greek mythology using audience participation, Wikipedia, and general theatrical insanity. Famous myths such as Pandora's Box, Jason and the Argonauts (the original Super Friends), and Hercules: Intern God jostle for space with obscure, weird myths such as the myth of Linus and the legend of the Argus. Culminating in a b musical dance-influenced version of The Iliad complete with a full-scale battle of action figures, this play is wild, silly, and informative, a complete blast for audiences of all ages.

"Heather’s the SCHOOL EDITION"
Before there was Regina George and the Plastics, there was Heather Chandler and the Heather's! Based on the cult classic film of the same name, Heathers is the story of Veronica Sawyer, a senior at the fictional Westerberg High. Veronica longs to be cool like the clique of it-girls that runs Westerberg: the unaffected, unattainable Heathers. Unfortunately, in addition to awesome levels of popularity, the Heathers are also cruel, choosing to mock and bully their kingdom into submission. When Veronica uses her skills as a forger to get the Heathers out of detention, she impresses their leader Heather Chandler— so much so that they agree to let her into their exclusive club. At first Veronica is thrilled—until she finds out that being one of the Heathers means bullying the same kids she used to call friends.

1-3rd Grade Musical:
The Aristocats is the story of a cultured feline, her three kittens and the friends they make during a wild adventure through the countryside and back alleys of Paris. It's also the last project Walt Disney green-lighted before his death in 1966 ... and a delightful one at that. Dedicated animals brimming with personality pitch in to help the misplaced felines find their way home. A loyal mouse. A dim-witted pair of hound dogs. A jazz band of alley cats. But the real knight in shining armor is O'Malley, a chivalrous tomcat who eventually becomes Duchess' mate and the dad each of the kittens so desperately wants. The dizzying action and clever humor is enhanced by fine musical numbers.
Rehearsals begin: January 2018, Performance Date: March 22

Auditioning is the only way we have to ensure that the right students are chosen for the right parts. All Auditions will consist of: Preparation of Songs (usually 2 of contrasting styles), Sides, Call backs, and Dance.
Lead characters, when possible, will be Double Cast - meaning that there will be 2 of each lead characters, giving more students exposure and experience, and not an understudy. In a double cast show neither actor is better or more important than the others, rather, they will be treated equal, given equal time, and will have equal performance time.
If there are not enough students to Double Cast the production, there will be swing understudies chosen. These understudies will learn multiple parts, and will be completely prepared to go on in their chosen roles.
After Audition process is completed, you must go on ASAP and sign up for the course, prior to the first rehearsal, and pay your bill. Failure to do so will be cause for you to be removed from the Cast List. You also must complete and turn in the Actor’s Contract - complete with Bio, Head Picture and agreement.
