These instructions are for current Weiss High School students that are wanting to be in an advanced performance class in the 2021-2022 school year.
We know that our students at Weiss have varying amounts of time that they can commit to extracurricular activities, so we offer several advanced class options that allow students to participate in theater based on their commitment level and availability. These classes require an audition and director approval in order to be admitted. This year we are asking students to submit a digital audition form and video of their audition performance by Friday, February 26th no later that 9:00PM.
THEATER 2-4 is an acting class that has a low level of extracurricular commitment. In this class students will learn acting technique and use class time to rehearse at least one full production as the curriculum. (Theater 2-4 students are asked to stay after school 2-4 times during the entire school year.)
THEATER 2-4 AUDITION REQUIREMENTS: Prepare two one-minute audition monologues that shows off your best skills as an actor/actress. The monologues can be comedic or dramatic, we have no preference. Your monologue should be memorized.
THEATER PRODUCTION is our varsity level acting and performance class. This class has a high level of extracurricular commitment. In this class students will prepare for college acting auditions, learn a variety of acting techniques, and are required to be involved in all Weiss Theater main stage productions as part of their curriculum.
