Twelfth Night has it all– shipwrecks, sword fights, mistaken identities, practical jokes, love, vows of friendship, rivalry and loss. In additional, ours will have an incredible soundtrack. We will be setting our version in the 1920′s, the Jazz Age, featuring pop songs from Porter and Gershwin.

Registration and singing auditions will be held on the first day of rehearsal (Monday, July 7th) at Sebastopol Charter School, 200 S Main Street, Sebastopol.  Parents may register their actor at the door (we’ll be there at 9:30 am if you’d like to come early!). Please, make sure to bring a form of payment and a head shot or school picture for registration. We will gather as a group at 10 am promptly and actors will have an opportunity to sing a prepared piece, maximum five minutes.

Actors, please prepare a very short  (16 bars) song to sing with either sheet music or CD accompaniment, preferably  in the 1920′s style (accompanist provided). Acting auditions will be held on Tuesday, July 8th.  Familiarity with the characters of 12th Night is recommended!
