Horizon Elementary’s Drama Club Auditions are Coming!

Posted on December 23, 2016

It’s time to kick off Horizon’s Drama Club this year! Auditions for Drama Club are open to students in grades 1-5.


The annual all-school musical this year, presented by Horizon’s Drama Club, will be “James and The Giant Peach”. Performances are scheduled for Thursday, February 23th and Friday, February 24th.


Rehearsals will be after school from 2:30 – 3:45 on Monday –Thursday starting in January after auditions are complete and the cast is announced. Not every student will rehearse each day. Specific schedules will be emailed to parents/guardians once the show has been cast.


Because drama is not part of the regular school curriculum, Horizon’s Drama Club is considered an “extracurricular activity.” A participation fee of $25 will be charged to each cast member (please wait until cast list is announced before sending money). This helps to cover the numerous expenses associated with creating a show of this size.


Please remember that not all students who audition can be included in the show due to the large number of students who try out every year. Auditions are scored using a rubric and the judges include Horizon staff members and theater professionals from our community.


Here is a link to the Audition Song, this link will provide a voiced version and an accompaniment version. Also included is an attachment of lines and sheet music. You may also go to Mr. West’s YouTube channel to view the audition songs. or just type in Jon West Horizon in the search bar on the page. ( Look for the red curtains, and the playlist entitled James Auditions.)
