● Auditions will be held Dec 11th, 12th and 13th in the chorus room from 4:00 pm – 5:45pm .
Each student will be assigned a date for his/her audition and will receive a notice during the
week of Dec. 4th. Students need to be available on the date that they are assigned, as it is
very difficult to change audition times.

● All students must prepare to sing a song (of their choosing) for one minute (without music)
in front of the audition committee. No instruments or personal CDs allowed.

● Callbacks for leading roles will take place Dec. 19 th and 20 th from 4:00 pm- 5:30 pm .
If a student gets a callback, they will be notified individually by email and must be available
on both dates. It is very important that you provide us with a working email for this purpose.
However, if a student is not called back, they may still be cast in the show.

Reed Holiday Helpers

Reed Intermediate School will once again be helping Reed families in need during the upcoming holiday season! Throughout this week November 27th - December 1st, students can donate a minimum of $1 in order to wear a hat to school on Friday, December 1st. For each dollar a student donates, a raffle ticket will be given for a special drawing on December 1st. Please mark your calendars for this important event. It is a wonderful way for students to take part in giving back during the Holiday Season. Please discuss with your children ways they could earn money around the house by doing chores or helping in some way to earn money to donate and be a Reed Holiday Helper! Many thanks to Student Council for helping the school counselors with this event!!
