Audition Notice & Production Information

In fall 2019 we will put on Lord of the Flies with TWO casts, one male and one female.

The casts will rehearse separately so as to not influence each other’s artistic choices.

More often than not, rehearsals will be held after school 4 days a week and on Saturdays.

Cast A & B will alternate afterschool times for rehearsals.

Example
Week 1 – Cast A Monday – Thursday 3:30-5:45, Cast B Monday -Thursday 6:00-8:15
Cast A Saturday 10am-1pm, Cast B Saturday 1pm-4pm
Week 2 – Cast A Monday – Thursday 6:00-8:15, Cast B Monday -Thursday 3:30-5:45
Cast A Saturday 1pm-4pm, Cast B Saturday 10am-1pm

Tech Day is TWO WEEKS before Opening on Oct 12 with the possibility of q2q starting the night before. Each cast will then alternate dress rehearsals from then on taking the next weekend off.

Each cast will get their own preview night and two performances over the course of the run.

The Grammar School Matinee will have one cast perform Act I and the other cast perform Act II.

Each cast is required to attend the performances of the other cast. (at no cost)

Dialogue remains the same throughout both versions of the script, only the names and pronouns have been changed. Any wording specific to gender has been altered as well.

Please read the original novel (posted as a PDF here) along with the script and character breakdown.
