Wondering how to fit Theatre into your class schedule?  Check out this info, then email Mrs. Tucker with any further questions.  Update:  CCP is no longer a required class for graduation, so Freshmen now have more room in their schedule to take a Theatre class!

Actors' Rep and Adv. Drama Auditions


ACTORS' REPERTORY CLASS:  May 2019.  Auditions for current Drama students who want to reach the top level acting class at Capo.  Pre-requisite is Drama 1, Advanced Drama, or a combination of the two, or extensive theatrical training at a different high school or theatre.  Please click here for more information on what to prepare for the audition.


ADVANCED DRAMA CLASS:  May 2019.  Auditions are only for students who feel that they are ready to skip a year of Drama 1.  This should only be considered for students who have experience in plays (at Capo or community theatre) and have a love of theatre.  Students will be skipping a year of lessons, so they should be fast learners who can catch up with the terminology, theatre history, and analysis techniques taught in Drama 1.  Click here for more information on what to prepare for the audition.


There are no auditions necessary if you want to add Drama 1 to your schedule, or if you are a continuing Drama 1 student who wants to take Advanced Drama.
