Clip to ScrapBook #2

I teach at a small school for elementary kids with mild disabilities. Out of about 150 kids I get an average of 20-40 signing up for a full year production, rehearsed once a week during a structured class time for 45 minutes. Everyone auditions to let me see "the part that's right for you" but the audition this year consisted of everyone sitting in a room together. I would read the line in character and ask others to try it. I got to see who was comfortable in front of the group, who had a natural affinity for different types of characters, etc. I never turn down someone who wants to be in the show but reserve the right to cast them in whatever manner I feel they'd be of best help to the production.

Let's talk and share ideas!
