This afternoon at 2:45 the drama department met in the East auditorium. Students of all grades at East tried out for parts in this year’s fall play, A Midsummer Night’s dream. The play is not a musical, therefore each student who wished to tryout had to memorize the monologue of the character he or she wished to play.

At the beginning of the meeting, Mr. Weaver reminded students the importance of fulfilling the requirements of the cast contract, which states that all who participate in the play must attend the mandatory rehearsals.

After explaining the process of the play, Mr. Weaver began the tryouts. It was soon evident that the audition process was going to be tough. Many students tried out. The high-quality tryouts prove that A Midsummer Night’s Dream is on its way to becoming another great East production.
