We are so excited that you are interested in participating in Gateway’s Drama this December! It will be an adaptation of C. S. Lewis’ beloved book, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. My goals for this production are for everyone involved to learn how to glorify God through the performing arts, to have fun, and most importantly, to share the gospel through the story. The age limit to audition is 7 years old and up. I highly encourage adults and teenagers to audition since some of the primary roles need to be this age group. Below are details about the drama including a timeline of rehearsals and what to expect for auditions on Sunday, August 25th.
If you are unable to come to the audition on the 25th, please contact me as soon as possible to schedule a make-up audition for you or your child.
If you would like to participate with costumes, painting sets, stage crew etc., help is greatly needed!
If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 334-322-1438.
PERFORMANCE DATE: Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 5pm (With a dessert reception to follow.)
REHEARSAL SCHEDULE & COMMITMENT:
This production will be a big commitment for all involved. It’s my desire for all the parents to see this as an opportunity to join their kids in this adventure by helping them with their lines, being on time for each rehearsal, and discussing the gospel elements within this play. Depending on your role in the play, the schedule below could be more flexible. If you have any questions about schedule, flexibility etc., please contact me.
Rehearsals begin Sunday night, September 8th from 5:15p to 7p. Rehearsals will be consistently on Sunday nights from 5:15p to 7p. Starting in mid-October, we will have 2 to 3 rehearsals a week. We will have multiple rehearsals the week before Thanksgiving. We will take the whole week of Thanksgiving off (including both Sundays). The remaining 2 weeks before the performance we will have multiple rehearsals as well.
PREPARING FOR AUDITIONS:
Auditions will be in the gym building. Everyone will be required to fill out an info sheet upon arrival (contact info, rehearsal schedule conflicts, speaking/non-speaking role, etc.).
