Winter 2022 MainStage Production (Ages 10-18)

 

Thank you all so much for auditioning for Disney’s Frozen Jr.  We had over 70 people audition, way more than we expected. It was such a joy to hear and see everyone for our first MainStage audition in two years! We wish we could have taken everyone.

Casting is never easy, but this year it was especially hard and we had to make some very difficult decisions.  After much thought, we made the decision to only cast vaccinated actors with the exception of the role of Young Anna. Additionally, we also kept the cast smaller than in previous years to maximize physical distancing at rehearsals and minimize risk backstage. In normal times, we would have taken a much larger cast. 

If you did not get cast, I hope we will see you in a class, at a future audition, or at the show in the audience. 

Thank you all again for supporting StarStruck Theatre during these tough times.

Due to maintaining a small cast size, please be advised that we will not be able to cast every student who auditions for Frozen Jr. Actors new to theatre and unvaccinated actors are highly encouraged to enroll in Fall Classes in addition to auditioning if your schedule allows. Fall registration is now open.

Frozen Jr. & COVID-19 (Updated 8/26): Ohlone College, where we will be performing, has put some new rules into place regarding Covid-19.  

Ohlone has stated that everyone on campus must be fully vaccinated by the time we arrive on campus in January.  We must show proof.  This includes everyone in the show, working on the show, backstage crew, parent volunteers and possibly the audience.  For those of you who are not eligible or choose not to be vaccinated at this point I am not sure what their criteria is.  They are still deciding on that.  They may not allow it, or they may accept regular testing.  

What this means for StarStruck and you:  If you are vaccinated then please continue to attend your audition.  If you are not vaccinated then you may still audition, but please know that you may have to get regular Covid testing, or at worse case, may not be able to participate in the show depending on the Ohlone College rules.  When and if we hear any updates, we will be sure to let you all know as soon as possible.

      IF CAST:

      Family Commitment: StarStruck Theatre expects performer attendance at all scheduled rehearsals. We will provide a weekly schedule with specific call times, but performers must be prepared to rehearse up to three days each week. We also require each family to contribute a minimum of 20 volunteer hours over the course of the production. There will undoubtedly be personal, family, and school events that will need to be missed because of being cast in the show.
