Jones Middle School Fall Production auditions are open to all students in grades 6-8. Roles are cast based on audition performance and rehearsal availability. Fall Production follows the Upper Arlington district anti-discrimination policy. Furthermore, students with parents on the production team do not receive special consideration. Directing staff with children auditioning are not present in the audition room and are not part of the casting decision for their child. Parent Coordinators and Parent Committee Chairs are not involved in any part of the audition process. We strive to create the most professional and fairest experience possible for our students.
Every show presents different characters, requiring varying skill sets. Not every show has a character for every type of performer. Students who received roles as 7th graders are not guaranteed roles in 8th grade based on their previous experience. The audition panel seeks to put students where they will be most successful and best benefit the production overall.
Auditions are the hardest part of our jobs because we know the decisions made affect so many people personally. Though we double cast our leading roles to help showcase as many students as possible, over 100 students audition for Fall Production annually. Thank you for your understanding and support as students step outside their comfort zone, many for their very first time. Jones Fall Production accepts all students, regardless of audition outcome, as performers. There are no cuts and everybody plays.
