Once on This Island in Rehearsal!

The cast of “Once on This Island” is hard at work rehearsing for their upcoming show. Don’t miss this beautiful story, to be performed at Toquet Hall.

Happy Valentine’s Day from “Once On This Island”

The production staff of “Once On This Island” had the great idea to sell “public valentines” as a fundraiser to cover some of the cost of their show. Their efforts were a smash hit – check out all the valentines that students bought!

Once on This Island CAST LIST!

Congratulations to everyone who auditioned, you all were truly amazing!  Casting this show was literally the most difficult thing we have ever had to do, and we wish that we could have cast everyone who auditioned, but unfortunately we could not. 
If you were not cast in this show, don’t worry – auditions for the One Act Play Festival are coming up, which is a great casting opportunity!
We will have a read-thru on this upcoming Monday, January 10th from roughly 2:30-5:30, and the rehearsal schedule for the rest of the week will be determined by then, so please do not make other plans until you know if you have rehearsal.

Once on This Island Callbacks

Thank you so much to everyone who auditioned, we are super excited for callbacks! You were all wonderful but unfortunately we cannot call everyone back. However, not being called back does not mean you will not be cast, and being called back does not mean you will be cast.  Feel free to dress up if it will help you act and move as your character.  We will post a second callback list Thursday night, and the cast list will be posted Friday night.

CALLBACKS WILL TAKE PLACE THURSDAY AND FRIDAY AT 2:30 AFTER SCHOOL

Remember that the songs we are using for callbacks are ALL OF THE AUDITION SONGS + EXTRA CALLBACK SONGS we added (that you weren’t allowed to use in auditions).

See you tomorrow!
