Grades 5 through 8
Auditions for the Spring Musical, Seussical Jr., for the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th Grade Students of Saint Raymond Parish (Day School & Religious Education) will be held in the Parish Life Center (PLC) on Saturday February 15th (10 AM until noon), and on Sunday, February 16th (1:00 until 2:30 PM). You will be contacted with your scheduled audition day and time.
You do not need to sing at the auditions, unless you are auditioning for a principal role. If so, then you should Come Prepared to sing a song either from Seussical Jr. or a Broadway show of your choice. If you want to sing a song from Seussical Jr., contact John Semerau at 394-8209 or pick up one copy of the song you would like from the school office or the PMC. We want you to do a song from the show so you can demonstrate your acting ability by singing your song in character. Also, you will be asked to do one or two readings from the show. Therefore, it is strongly advised that you learn as much as you can about the characters. Watch the movie, listen to the CD or read the libretto. Ask the resource librarians at any public library to help you locate material related to the play. You may also listen to the songs from Seussical through Itunes.
Audition forms should be returned by February 13th to the school office or the PMC marked “Spring Musical.” Audition time slots are limited and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis, so please return the form as soon as possible. All who audition will be cast in the show. The 5th through 8th graders will be cast as the primary characters.

Students in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade will be cast in the choir. There are no auditions for those grades.
