This year, the Southmoreland High School is producing its very first musical, Cinderella, March 23-25. Auditions and the callback process are about to begin.
Last week, more than 50 students auditioned for roles in the musical. The call back lists for dancers, singers, and actors were posted three days later.
Sophomore Galatea Zeglin was on the call back list for singing and acting.
“I chose to audition because I love being in musicals and plays at the Geyer Performing Arts Center,” said Zeglin. “I decided to go for the school’s first musical to make the Geyer proud.”
Zeglin performed in musicals such as “Little Shop of Horrors,” “A Christmas Carol,” “Hair”,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Addams Family,” and in February she will be performing in “Cabaret.”
“I’m looking forward to how (the musical) comes together,” said Zeglin. “I really hope that the school’s first musical is one to remember, and I’m so happy to be a part of it as an actress and set builder.”
Sophomore Joselyn Busato loves all things musical theater and is being considered for a bigger role.
“I think that everyone has that feeling in the back of their mind that they aren’t good enough,” said Busato, adding that getting a callback “is a nice confidence boost to know that that feeling isn’t always true.”
Busato thinks that the musical will be great for the school’s reputation and that a lot of the community will come out to see it.
Senior Morgan Conty was on both call back lists and was part of many plays including last year’s play, “Under the Big Top.”
“When I heard that our school was having a musical my senior year, I knew I wanted to audition,” said Conty, “I’m excited to see how the first musical goes and how the different people coming to work with us are going to do to make us the best we can be.”
Freshman Ella Huffman has been in plays in the past, but this is her first high school performance.
“Auditioning for a high school musical is a chance to do what I love to do with all my peers,” said Huffman. “I’m super excited to meet so many new people and learn from the experienced leaders involved in this year’s musical.”
Callbacks for the musical take place Dec. 13 on the high school stage.
