Hello, OTC! Here's some information on some important dates/events that are coming up. 

Carwash- 10/12, 10am-1pm

Publicize, publicize, publicize! Everyone who signed up is expected to be there. If you signed up to sing, make sure to have your karaoke track accessible (downloaded) before you arrive. Remember to bring the signs if you were assigned to make one. The only people exempt from the carwash (pulled for tech) are Luke, Deanna, Zach, Stephen, Justin A, and Keith. Tech will continue after the carwash.

 

Halloweenfest Director Letters of Intent- Due Tues, 10/15

Seniors can apply to direct Halloweenfest. The responsibilities include picking songs, casting, organizing rehearsals, etc. You must be available on Weds for auditions.

 

Halloweenfest Auditions- Weds, 10/16

 

Open to full company. Prepare 16-32 bars of a song of your choosing. Auditions will be held in the LT. They're very VERY casual, but please be prepared. 

 

Dinner Theatre Auditions- Weds, 10/16

Same as Halloweenfest, except if you feel inclined, you may prepare a cut from a mid 60s folk rock song. 

REMINDER: You CAN audition for both (possibly with the same song, if you choose). 

We also need volunteers for Halloweenfest (tattoos, face painting, coloring, etc,.). Sign ups will be up soon. You can also get 1 hour per bag of candy that you bring in that weekend. More info to come.
