Auditions for Suspended the Musical

Young Actors Playhouse is holding auditions for our upcoming production of “Suspended the Musical!”

At Joseph Biden Middle School, a group of students assemble for another day of In School Suspension. Throughout the day, they discover the controversial reasons that led to them being suspended. Whether it was for wearing an American Flag shirt to school on Cinco de Mayo or chewing a poptart into the shape of a gun, the students try to navigate through school rules and the effects of zero tolerance policies on kids.

This rock musical has roles perfect for students of all experience levels. There are roles for kids who excel in singing, roles for kids who excel in acting, and roles for kids who excel in dance.

The show will be directed by YAP Artistic Director, Don Goodner and choreographed by Julia Schick.

WHAT:
Students do not need to prepare anything for the audition. We will teach a short excerpt from a song, and have the kids cold read from the script. We don’t need a headshot or resume.

WHO:
Students in grades 6th-8th.

WHERE:
Auditions and all rehearsals will be at our Kennesaw Campus located at:
1610 Cobb International Blvd
Suite 1
Kennesaw, GA 30152

WHEN:
Auditions will be:
Tuesday, August 14th 6:00 PM
Please plan to arrive a little early to fill out paperwork. There will be a 15 minute parent/cast meeting prior to the auditions.

“Suspended the Musical” is part of our Production-Based theater class series. Students learn acting, singing, and dancing skills in the process of putting on the show. Every student who registers and pays their production fee will be given a real role in the show. This means, they will have lines to memorize and real character to play.
