Performances: October 20 & 21, 6:30pm
ACTORS: This show is a radio play. The key to a great radio play is how the actor uses his/her voice to express the emotions and tell the story the way author meant it to be. Vocal technique and expression is more important than the physical in a radio play. However, the actor does need to express a believable physical presence as well because, after all for our performance, the audience will still be watching you. It would be a good idea to research how radio plays were done to get a better feel for how this show will be performed and what will be required of the actors.
Needed for this production:
Auditions: September 7 & 8, 3-5pm in the flex room.
Theatre Veterans: Come prepared with a one minute memorized monologue from a play. Familiarize yourself with War of the Worlds script.
First time auditioning for LuHi: You may prepare a one minute memorized monologue but it is not necessary. Cold readings will be provided for you. Familiarize yourself with War of the Worlds script.
Interested in Tech: Come to auditions on the first day to fill out an interest form and get rehearsal/performance information.
Here at LuHi we welcome and encourage anyone interested in theatre to be a part of our productions. Whether it’s acting, singing, dancing, or tech work we have a place for you. Never tried theatre before? You can start out small in a minor role or on the tech crew or you can dive right in a go for those big roles. It’s up to you.
LuHi theatre follows the philosophy every actor has a fair chance at every role. We do not cast based on seniority. A freshman has just as good of a shot at getting a lead role as a senior does. When casting several factors are considered: acting ability, confidence, body language, facial expressions, vocal technique, character interpretation, special talents, do the actor’s abilities fit the requirements needed for the character/script, how well do actors work together and do they fit together as characters in the play, just to name a few.
We look at all of these factors and place actors in roles that best fit their talents and abilities in combination with what is best for the production as a whole. It is not uncommon for an actor to have the lead role in one show and a minor role in the next (or vice versa). Our goal is to let our theatre students shine and make our productions be the best they can be.
