Welcome to The School Of Rock!

Hi there, and welcome to the official SouthWest StageWorks blog for everyone involved with Oregon's first production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The School Of Rock!  We are so excited to be one of the first companies in the nation to produce this exciting piece of musical theatre!  (Have I said how 'excited' we are yet?)

We are actively now seeking the performance ensemble to bring this show to reality!  We're going to need actors, technicians, rock musicians, stylists, and, sometimes, all of them at the same time.  Have you got what it takes to be in the band?

Here's what you need to do:

-Listen to the music...available on Spotify and iTunes
-Read the script...Yeah, I know you've probably seen the movie (I mean, who hasn't?), but the play IS slightly different, and knowledge is power!  They're available in the Drama Room.
-Pick up and fill out an Audition can pick up hardcopies in the Drama Room or download it from the link on the right
-Prep your stuff...singers = 16 measures of a rock musical/rock song; actors = 30-60 second comic monologue; instrumentalists = 90 seconds of prepared music (that said, we want to hear everyone...ask for details)
-Attend the meeting in Room 108 on 2/25 at Lunch for any questions about the audition or rehearsal processes
-Have a great time...yeah, that's just implied

We want YOU for this exciting (there's that word again) show!  Ready?
