WHS Theater Company’s Fall 2018 Production will be Dark of the Moon by Howard Richardson and William Berney
“This perennial favorite is based on the haunting folk ballad of “Barbara Allen.” Employing a large cast and imaginative settings in the Smoky Mountains, it recounts the story of John, a strange “witch boy” who upon first beholding the beautiful Barbara Allen immediately falls in love. He is given human form to woo and marry her on the condition that she remain true to him. The marriage is consummated and Barbara gives birth to a witch child whom the townspeople destroy in a superstitious frenzy. During a religious revival Barbara is led to betray John thus breaking their spell of love. As she dies, he returns forever to the world of the mountain witches.” (https://www.samuelfrench.com/p/6788/dark-of-the-moon)

How to Audition:
Sign up! Please choose one of the two auditions days and sign up on the sheets outside of the drama office.
Get the Form! Get an audition contract from Ms. Slotnick — you will need to have this signed by your parents/guardians and bring it with you to your audition.
Prepare! Well, actually, you don’t need to prepare anything! However, this show features a lot of music – both sung and instrumental – if you would like, please prepare about 1 min of a song to showcase your talents. Do not worry about style or genre, just bring something that you enjoy singing or playing 🙂
Show up! Please come in clothing and footwear in which you can move comfortably — we will be doing some physical work as well as cold readings of scenes from the play.
