Bradford Christian Academy is thrilled to kick-off the holiday season with their upcoming production of The Wizard of Oz! Performances will be held Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, November 16, 17, and 18 at 7:00 pm at the beautiful First Baptist Church of Haverhill.
WHO: All students in grades 6 through 12 are encouraged to audition!
- To audition for a lead singing role (Dorothy, Glinda, The Tin Man, The Scarecrow, or The Cowardly Lion), please prepare the opening (20 to 30 seconds) of one of their songs from the show. You may choose to sing a cappella, or we can provide accompaniment. Check YouTube for examples and inspiration.
- To audition for The Wicked Witch, please perform the following monologue:
Ah, ha, ha, ha, ha. Well! Ring around the rosy, a pocket full of – spears. Thought you’d be pretty foxy, didn’t ya? Well, the last to go will see the first three go before her. Ha, ha, ha. And her mangy little dog, too. How about a little fire, Scarecrow?
- To audition for ensemble, we’ll teach you a song to sing as a group at the audition.
WHEN: Monday, September 18 from 3:15 to 5:30 pm
- Rehearsals will be held Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 3:15 to 5:30 pm; Fridays from 3:15 to 5:00 pm.
- Beginning the first week of November, we will add Wednesdays from 3:15 to 5:30 pm as well.
- Throughout the week of performance, rehearsals will be held from 3:15 to 8:00 pm.
WHERE: First Baptist Church of Haverhill, 217 Main Street, Haverhill, MA
- NOTE: Students will need to provide their own transportation to the church from the middle and high schools.
A FEW MORE THINGS:
- Students will be able to participate in basketball and cheerleading, as there is only one week of overlap between the production and the start of the basketball season.
- Students in cross country are welcome to participate! Please inform Coach Cat if you plan to audition.
- Unfortunately, due to the intensity of the practice and game schedule, students participating in soccer are not able to audition.
If you have any questions, please contact directors Matt Perusse, Monica Romig, or LJ Nicolas.
We look forward to seeing you at auditions!
