Suite Surrender Cast Announcement

We’d like to thank everyone who came out to audition for this year’s play.  We had a wonderful turnout!  You all really impressed us in your auditions; you were entertaining, funny, and impressive to watch.  Ultimately, you made our job of narrowing down to a small cast incredibly difficult, and we’re thrilled to have such a diverse array of talent here at CGHS for this and future productions.

We had 34 students come out for this show, and so we would like to encourage those of you who didn’t make the cast to keep coming back!  We were honestly inspired by your auditions, and we really would love to see you remain involved–either in crew, in future productions, or in theatre classes!  If you are a freshman, sophomore, or junior, please don’t forget that you can sign up for the 1-semester Dramatic Lit elective course next year.  We’ll be reading plays, acting them out, doing mini-performances; all of which will ultimately help you as an actor and performer.

If you didn’t make the cast but would like to remain involved, here are your options:

Important Info for Auditions Today!

If you can come early to auditions (30-45 minutes before), you can look at the scripts while you wait in the Hall of Excellence!  We’re going to ask that you operate on the HONOR SYSTEM.  This means you understand that you will not take pictures of the script or come 2 hours early to prepare with the script.  We know, though, that several people couldn’t make it to yesterday’s meeting and therefore didn’t have any (or much) time to look over the script.  We want to encourage you all to prepare as best you can to create standout characters in your audition, and we want you all to feel as confident going in as possible!

Audition Groups & Info

Reminders for Auditions on Thursday, 1/18:

  • Bring a completed audition form with you.  See Mrs. Widbin in room 204 or the “Forms” page of our website to print one off.

  • Wait in the Hall of Excellence to be called in for your audition.
  • If you’d like to be added or removed from the list below, please see Mrs. Widbin or email widbinl@centergrove.k12.in.us ASAP.
