“Everybody cut loose, Footloose, kick off your Sunday shoes!” Auditions for the spring musical, “Footloose,” are Nov. 6 and 7 in Love Auditorium.

Those interested in auditioning can email Drama teacher Jeremy Clay by Nov. 3 to be added to the audition roster. Assigned five-minute singing slots will be from 5-8 p.m. Nov. 6, and students should prepare 32 bars of an appropriate pop song to perform that day. Dance call with the choreographer will be at 5 p.m. Nov.7. Auditions are open to all Bryant High School students.

“I’m looking for anybody who has talent in [singing, acting or dancing],” Clay said. “I want everything from a triple threat, which is somebody who can act, sing and dance really well, but I also need some people that are predominantly singers, actors or dancers.”

Clay wanted to either put on “Legally Blonde” or “Footloose,” but the Stage Management class voted for which show to put on.

“With two other shows that I wanted to produce here, I had the Stage Management class vote between two shows. It was a close running, but “Footloose” won out,” Clay said.

Drama club president Michael Fuhrman will also assist those auditioning.

“As Drama club president, we are setting up a couple of workshops where [students] can come and learn the dance call dance, sing their song for people and they can just get comfortable with people around them and Mr. Clay,” Fuhrman said. “This is a low-stress thing where they can just showcase their talents so they may hopefully make the show.”

Auditioning can be stressful for some people. Fuhrman has some advice for those auditioning or wanting to audition.

“Just take a deep breath,” Fuhrman said. “It’s gonna be ok. You determine your own success. Whether you make the show or not, you should be proud of your attempt to get up there and sing your song, or dance on stage in front of all of us. It’s a big accomplishment for that to happen, and you should be proud of yourself.”
