All-State Opening Production
Here are the ways your students can participate:
- Each troupe can send two students to audition individually
- Additionally, a troupe director can choose to rehearse one of the numbers listed under group numbers at their school and send in a video
A troupe can send 2 individual students to audition and a group number, if they would like. Troupe directors must register their two auditioning students on the Individual Audition Form. They must fill out the Group Submission form for group numbers.
Individual Auditions are due Saturday, September 26th by 11:59 pm. Group Numbers from schools will be due November 20th by 11:59 pm.
The Honor Troupe application process is completely electronic this year! The directions and a template for submitting your troupe’s portfolio electronically are available here. Portfolios are due Saturday, September 26th. And we’ve adjusted the scoring of portfolios this year to account for the the lost school time due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
