Middle School One Act Play Auditions
NCCS Fine Arts is excited to announce auditions for the upcoming Middle School One Act play "The Light in the Library" under the direction of Mr. Moritz Arnold. Mr. Arnold is a part of our Moving Forward program where he is the Learning Lab Coordinator...but he is also himself an actor and director who has worked with several performing ensembles in the metro area.
The show is a fun romp through literature and history as the two leads, Gabby and Paige, poke around in a library after dark and bring to life some fantastic fictional characters - think "Night at the Museum," but in a library. The show calls for flexible casting but at least 8 boys and 9 girls.
Auditions are open to all students, 5th - 8th grade, and will be next Tuesday, 1/30 and Wednesday, 1/31 at 3:30pm in the Band Room. At the auditions, students will be provided with a rehearsal schedule and application. Nothing is required to prepare for the audition, but students should expect to have cold-readings from the script. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Arnold by e-mail. We are excited for this new production!

We’ll have a winner for best dressed/most spirited, as well as the overall winner. Families are welcome to join us, as we had a packed gym last year and expect the same this year! Who will win the trophy this year?!
