Audition Information

We’re off to see the Drama Club in 2023! This year’s show is the Wizard of Oz and auditions are coming soon. This is the same information that was shared at the November 15, 2022 Drama Club Informational Meeting. All important details can be found in the audition information links above.
 
Students (or parents) must sign up for auditions. Drama Club is open to all students in grades 4-8. Tech Crew is restricted to students in grades 7-8. Students received this information in their student emails on November 16. Please discuss this with your child if they may be interested in this opportunity. Our 3 performances will be held at John Carroll University in late March. Contact Michael Martinek (mmartinek@gesu.com) with any questions.
