Auditions for PSHS ‘West Side Story’

Today, Jan. 29, and Friday, Jan. 30, afternoons after school, you might hear unfamiliar music coming from the band room at the high school, as young hopefuls audition for the Pagosa Springs High School 2009 musical “West Side Story,” by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim.

Those who audition may be singing, “I Feel Pretty” or “Somewhere.” They will be reading for parts as a Jet or a Shark, or Tony, Anita or Maria. They will be dancing to “Dance At The Gym” — an audition dance step created by Casey Crow and Emmi Greer, already being practiced in the halls of the high school.

We invite everyone of high school age to prepare a song and to audition. Sign-up sheets are on the band room door. We need lots of young men and women.

There is help with song preparation — contact Dan Burch at the high school, or, call Dale Morris at 731 3370.
