Auditions for the spring musical, Grease, will take place January 22 - 23 for Upper and Middle School students. Lower School auditions will be held separately at a time yet to-be-determined. Rehearsals will begin immediately following auditions. The show opens April 18 and runs through April 20 in the Solomon Theater.
“Grease is near and dear to my heart,” said Director of Performing Arts Meredith Long-Dieth. “I spent more than a year touring North America playing Cha Cha DiGregorio, and I am looking forward to an exciting production.”
On January 19 and 20, St. Martin’s Performing Arts Department will host the inaugural New Orleans One-Act Festival for Upper and Middle School students from local schools. The festival, which will be open to the public, will include theatre games, master classes, and performances. Schools will compete against each other by staging a one-act play in 40 minutes or less. Following each one-act, a local guest artist will provide feedback on the performances, the set, the costumes, and the staging to the entire cast and crew. Upper School performances will take place Jan. 19 from 6-9 p.m. Middle School will perform Jan. 20 from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
