With a little help from our whimsical fairy pendant, Ren finally selected a musical and posters have gone up around town with information about auditions the second Saturday in June. It is a summer musical, so auditions are open to any Repose residents regardless of age or previous experience.
Auditions will be held at 9am June 8 in the Community Center which will be familiar to those who participated in or attended The Glass Menagerie.
Those auditioning will be asked to complete a form, and to have prepared – preferably memorized – a monologue and a musical number. Potential cast may wait in the lobby during the audition time or if they want to sit in the main room, they will need to be quiet. Those who provide forms will be called up onto the stage where Ren will give them an opporutnity to provide their monologue, ask them to do some singing, and ask about dance experience. After this he will answer any questions they have about the production.

Crew NeededCrew will be needed in the following areas:
- Fill out the ooc form. On the form put preferred role/roles, previous acting experience, and a brief statement of how they do during the audition.
- Write a narrative paragraph under the audition header. This will provide an opportunity for interaction with the director.
- Interact outside of your audition with others in the Lobby Headers. (Anyone is free to chill in the lobby regardless of whether or not they are auditioning!)
HOW LIKELY IS MY CHARACTER TO GET THEIR FIRST CHOICE ROLE?
It will depend on how many people audition for the same role. There’s a very good chance of getting A role based on the number of roles to cast. Include a second or third choice for if you don't get your first choice.
HOW WILL CASTING HAPPEN?
If two characters audition for the same role, the following will be considered:
EVERY COMMENT the character makes before FRIDAY, JUNE 14 at 9PM (Pacific Time) will count as one point for that character. Your previous experience and audition narrative. In other words, if your character bombs their audition, it's unlikely Ren will give them a big role, however, if they have a neutral audition up against a stellar one, activity will count higher.
WHAT ABOUT CREW?
Crew will be assigned primarily based on player preference (with a max of probably 3 - 6 characters in one area). If we end up with 12 people who all want to do the same thing, comment count will help make the final determinations, but doubles aren't as big of a deal here and NPCs can be in the remaining areas.
I WANT TO BE INVOLVED BUT MY CHARACTER WOULDN'T AUDITION!
~Someone~ will have filled out a form for your character! Fill it out, let them be surprised that they are auditioning, and go for it. Or alternatively, do the same thing, but for crew. This is Repose, nonsense like this happens all the time. :P
