On September 12th, auditions were held for Gibson Southern Theatre Department’s upcoming spring production of The Phantom of the Opera. The cattle call audition process was divided into three portions: singing, dancing, and acting. Students wishing to audition did a short choreographed dance sequence to the song “Masquerade” , a cold reading of a scene, and sang either “Think of Me” or “All I Ask Of You,” all from the musical. After making their way through all the stations, auditioners were sent home to await their results two days later. On Friday, after fifth period, the cast list was posted. 60 students were overjoyed to see they had made the cast of Phantom of the Opera.
Those who were chosen to be in the cast of The Phantom of the Opera will be performing the single largest musical number from The Phantom of the Opera, “Masquerade”, as the opening act of Vaudeville 2012: GSTD Live! These students have been rehearsing every Thursday morning before school, as well as spending a morning of their fall break rehearsing for Vaudeville. These students will be working up until the production which will run from March 14-17, 2013. Tickets may be purchased now at https://www.gshstheatre.com.
