High School Student Auditions – this week, Nov 7th & 8th!
  • Wednesday, Nov. 7, from 3:30-5:30 PM
  • Thursday, Nov. 8, from 6:00-8:00 PM

Audition Details:

Mrs. Gigliotti and Mrs. McCormick have recently communicated to all students regarding auditions.  Moreover, the students had a Musical Theatre Audition Workshop in classes with professional actress, Suzy Johnson, to prepare for auditions.

If you wish to audition, you must sign up for a time slot using the sign-up form on BWN Auditions Page on our website.  There, you will also find information you need to prepare for the audition, including a link to the audition soundtracks as well as how to put together a headshot and resume.

And we strongly recommend that you check out the Audition Tips created by professional actor, Ryan Washabaugh.

Audition Material:

The Broadway Night Creative Team has already selected audition music for students and has provided sheet music with the appropriate 32 bars cut, demo tracks and the accompaniment tracks that will also be used in the audition.

Audition material should be memorized!

How to Access Audition Material:

  1. Log out of any google drive you are logged in to. You do not ‘need to request access.’ (This is the default message you will receive if you are coincidentally logged in to google through your personal accounts.)
  2. Once you log out of your personal account, then click the link.
  3. You may also need to ‘right click’ and save or download the sheet music or audio files to access them (some computers may require this step, but most should allow you to click and access).

PCA Membership Drive and Friends & Family Fundraiser Update

Thank you, Parents!  Our PCA Membership campaign is currently at 95% of goal for contributions!  Details will be provided at the next PCA meeting.

Our Friends and Family Campaign and Corporate Matching Campaign, however, are in need of your support.

Friends and Family Campaign

In the coming weeks, your students will be asked to bring in 5 or more names and addresses, so we can conduct a letter-writing effort to reach out beyond our parents.  Please watch for an email regarding this event and help us reach our overall fundraising goal of $10,000.

Remember, this approach is being utilized to replace our traditional fund drive which is an all-day walk through neighborhoods seeking donations.  Thank you for your support and ability to help us spread the good news about SLHS Chorus!  For details: Friends and Family Information Page

Corporate Matching Campaign

If your company does corporate matching, please ask for the PCA, a 501c3 corporation to benefit.  Your company will have the paperwork, and our Tax ID # is 26-3487105.

PCA Membership Campaign

Membership levels start at $30.00. You can check it out on-line or send in a paper form:  Join the PCA.  We hope you will join us as a proud PCA member this year!
