MS Play Auditions


This week, MS students were offered the opportunity to audition for this year’s  MS play, an abridged version of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In previous years, this play took place in May but because we are planning an outdoor performance, the show this academic year will take place from the 28th to the 30th of January, 2016.  Auditions are already underway so if there are still students who are interested and yet haven’t signed up they should contact  Ms. Rankin (rankinc@ismanila.org) ASAP.

Initially, students will attend once or twice a week, depending on their role during AFAC club activity times. Rehearsals will then increase as we get closer to the performance date.

The meeting takes place in the Little Theatre from 3 to 4.40pm on Thursday, 13th August.  Talk to Mr. Relf or Ms. Patrikios for more details…..

HS Play 2015: Auditions for The Crucible


Each year the HS Theatre Department tries to offer a challenging piece of Theatre for ISM students to be involved in.  We typically choose a play with a big cast and room to incorporate a large ensemble. We also have a very large backstage and technical crew.  For example, last year 140 students were involved in some capacity with the show.

With this in mind, we encourage as many people as possible to attend auditions or sign up for crew .

The Crucible is a classic dramatic play from one of America’s most famous playwrights, Arthur Miller. It explores the events surrounding a small religious community who is dealing with accusations of witchcraft. Some of the most memorable roles in American Theatre come from this play so take the opportunity  to be part of the drama!

Key Dates

In addition, to after school rehearsals, we will be rehearsing most Saturdays up until the performance days of October 15th, 16th and 17th. People in ensemble should expect 2 days after school a week. Actors with speaking roles will range between 2 to 4 days a week depending on what is being block at the time.  A detailed calendar will be handed with the cast posting.
