Auditions for Advanced Drama May 22nd, 2019

If you are an incoming freshmen it is strongly suggested that you still start off in Drama 1.  However, if you have taken Advanced Drama in middle school, you've been in a number of plays, you've seen a number of plays, and feel that you are ready to bypass all that Drama 1 has to offer (please click here to find out what Drama 1 teaches the students), then you can choose to audition for the Advanced Drama class.  If you are a current Capo student who is interested in starting off in Advanced Drama, you should also check out what Drama 1 has to offer.  There is no guarantee of admission into Adv. Drama.  Applicants should be aware that they are expected to have a solid foundation of scene work, character analysis, Theatre History and genre knowledge, and have a strong grasp of theatre vocabulary.  If you have reviewed the Drama 1 curriculum and still feel that you are ready to skip it, come to the after school auditions to be held at Capo in our Blackbox classroom (in back of the theater) on MAY 22nd, 2019 3pm-5pm. Middle Schoolers can come at 4pm.  Please email Mrs. Tucker ahead of time to let her know that you will be coming, and to ask any questions at all, at eatucker@capousd.org

 

Auditions should be a 1 minute monologue from a play, theatre monologue book, or theatre monologue website (no movies or TV).   Please memorize the monologue and make sure it is no longer than a minute.  Mrs. Tucker is looking to see if you understand the monologue, can become a character, stay in character, focus, portray the use of character analysis (you have thought about what that character is thinking, what motivates that character, his/her objective, etc.), and make use of basic body language like facial expressions, gestures and light blocking.  Feel free to ask questions beforehand if you need any clarification by emailing the address above.  We want you to succeed, so we want to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.  If you choose not to audition, or audition but Mrs. Tucker decides you might not be ready to skip a whole year of Drama 1, then you will be placed in the Drama 1 class where you will have a blast, make friends, and solidify your theatrical knowledge.
