This year Chesswood Junior Schools production will be based on Peter Pan.
Below are the audition pieces. Children only need to audition for speaking parts. ANY child can be in the school production as long as they can commit to rehearsals. The school production is 100% inclusive.
There are 51 speaking parts in each cast. There are two casts! (2 Peter Pan's, 2 Wendy's etc) so there are total of 102 speaking parts up for grabs! I am only auditioning Peter, Wendy, Tinker Bell, Captain Hook, Captain Jack Sparrow, Sebastian, Sponge Bob and Tiger Lily. We will cast the other characters based on the auditions the children give. Auditions take place during the children's music lessons next week. They do not need to memorise the lines as we will have copies of the words. We may not use the whole audition piece for a character and we may not use all audition pieces given. It is not a reading test and we will help with reading the words. It is more important to demonstrate characterization. Children who are absent from their music lessons can have the opportunity to audition over a lunchtime.
Auditions are meant to be fun and all children will be encouraged to have a go. They are not formal and children will be supported throughout the whole process and given lots of guidance before we start.
