Overview: what is the fall show this year?
This year, the Eden Prairie High School Drama Department is hosting a Fall Shorts Festival as their fall show! This festival will be a collection of small ten-minute plays that have COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing factors in mind. In total, the performance is scheduled to be anywhere from 70-90 minutes long, and will be performed on November 12-14th. Each person will most likely be cast in one show and will rehearse 2-3 days a week. Tech hours and meeting times will depend on the amount of students auditioning.
Auditions: what can we expect in the auditioning process?
Auditions for the Fall Shorts Festival will be different due to COVID-19 restrictions. Prior to any auditions, both cast and tech, we ask that those interested will fill out an information and scheduling form, which will be listed below. These will be crucial during the auditioning process, so please plan accordingly! Audition Monologues will also be provided below, and are recommended to be memorized. If you cannot memorize, you are allowed to bring a reference sheet with your monologues to your audition. Masks are required and social distancing regulations will be in place. More specific audition information will be posted soon, so please check the Drama Club Groupme as well as the Drama Instagram for more frequent updates.
