SPOTLIGHT Auditions

SPOTLIGHT AUDITIONS:

Elm Street’s SPOTLIGHT productions are comprised of our experienced and passionate students who have grown and want to grow through our Collage program. We challenge our students with responsibility, commitment, and dedication to the arts as we present these performances on stage and in our community. They are the faces of our Collage Series and the quality we wish to achieve from all of our students.

Auditions and casting takes place before classes begin and are adjudicated by a group of  directors, choreographers, and musicians.

There are certain prerequisites that are ENCOURAGED to be considered for Fall SPOTLIGHT—we would like our 3-8 Grade cast members to have taken at least Acting 1 & Acting 2 before auditioning (these are Elm Street classes available during the Fall and Spring Collage Season). Those that have taken our Collage classes will be invited to a separate date. There are OPEN auditions for Grades 3 and up (only on Wednesday, August 23).
