Components of Encore 2016
I. Repeat the 2014 Concept
Repeat an original act from previous SJHS Variety Shows (1950's through 2005)
- All acts accepted for the production will display the same material, be it musical, drama or dance as well as the same personnel who appeared in the original show.
a. One or more of the original members are deceased,
b. One or more of the original members is disabled,
c. One or more of the original members cannot appear because of a travel situation
Because of any of the above exceptions, the majority of the members seen in an act in ENCORE will be original.
II. Musical Highlights
Selections from Broadway musicals performed at SJHS (1960's through 2005)
- This could include leads, orchestra, dancers, choral numbers
III. SJHS Alums Return as Professionals
Performing music from their personal careers (1950's through 2005)
- There will be a Jazz Ensemble, Showtime Dancers, Orchestra and Choraliers in the show
Auditioning for Encore 2016
Other than the official groups (Jazz Ensemble, Dancers, Chorus and Orchestra), an audition is REQUIRED for all acts to be in ENCORE 2016.
Official Groups of Encore 2016: Each of the official groups listed above are still open for membership until April 1. Remember, participants in these groups must be former SJHS students and have performed in either the SJHS Variety Shows or SJHS Musicals between 1950 and 2005.
Acts in Encore 2016: Audition materials are being accepted through April 1, 2016 by the Encore Act Selection Committee. Acts that will be accepted will come from former Variety Show acts (same people, same material), performers from SJHS Musicals and accomplished performers, performing material from their personal careers.
Auditions may be sent in any way that works for you, e-auditions, CD, DVD, Facebook, etc. The Committee is looking for:
- Talent Level
- Stage Presence
- Audience Appeal
