Auditions for Spring Musical

Spring Musical INFO MEETING Wednesday, December 16th in the Blackbox at lunch.  Come and find out about the musical auditions, what it takes to be in a musical, the plot of the show, etc, etc.  Feel free to ask questions as well.  There is no obligation to audition, it's just an informal, informational meeting.


Auditions will be January 6-8, after school.  

Wednesday 1/6:  Dance Workshop.  Come learn the audition dance from our choreographer, so you can practice that night.

Thursday 1/7:  Lead auditions (singing and acting), Ensemble audition (singing)

Friday 1/8:  Dance Auditions and Callbacks for Leads



   -Learn and practice the audition dance

   -Find, practice, and bring in 2 copies of 16 bars of sheet music from a musical (not Addams Family, not pop music)

   -If you are auditioning for a lead, find and rehearse a 30 second-60 second monologue (not from Addams Family or from TV/Movies)     which displays your acting ability, and convinces us that you can be the character you are auditioning for.  Find monologues in Mrs. Tucker's monologue books, or online.  Remember, this show is a comedy (a dark comedy--so show us your sarcasm and your confidence.  Have fun with it!)

  -Bring in your Audition Contract (pick one up at the Info Meeting or from Mrs. Tucker)


Any questions?  Come to the Info Meeting, or ask Mrs. Tucker in person or via email.

Getting rid of Halloween decorations this year? We want them!!!

Capistrano Valley Performing Arts is producing The Addams Family for our Spring Musical this year.  It is a ghoulishly gothic tale of a family who lives in a haunted mansion, and enjoys wreaking havoc on "normal" people.  If you are considering getting rid of your Halloween decorations, or if you'd like to take advantage of the clearance sales at Halloween stores/Michaels/Hobby Lobby/etc., please consider donating them to us!!  Bring any items to Mrs. Tucker's classroom (the Blackbox) on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays.  See the list below for details.  (Items we don't need are anything specifically Halloweeny such as pumpkins, candy corn, etc.)

  • Candelabras
  • Flickering candles
  • Cobwebs
  • Graveyard head stones
  • White face make-up
  • Spiders
  • One gigantic spider (the size of someone’s back)
  • Metal (or metal-looking) goblets and chalices and dinnerware
