Hillcrest High School is proud to announce





Hillcrest's largest and most famous tradition is back!


WHEN: Tuesday & Wednesday, August 27 & 28, 2019.  After school.  No sign-ups. Just show up on either day. If you would like to be considered for a lead role, we encourage you to come on Tuesday.


WHERE: Hillcrest High School auditorium


HOW: Find a song from a musical that you can sing 30 seconds of. Practice it.  Show up on Tuesday or Wednesday after school.  There will be an online audition form you will have to fill out on one of the many computers we will have available.  Then we will call your name, and you will perform your 30-second song.  Pretty simple.  You will need to bring a karaoke version of your song or minus track on your phone or device and we will plug it into the system.  You can also just perform with a live pianist if you would like to bring one.  You can't sing without music though.  And the music you sing along with shouldn't have someone else singing on it.


WHO: Any Hillcrest High School student is welcome and encouraged to audition.  No prior experience necessary. Beginners are encouraged! We are especially looking for students from all ethnicities and backgrounds.


WHAT: Hillcrest's "giant musical" is the largest activity the school sponsors. Our recent productions of "Les Miserables" and "Hairspray" had over 250 students in it from every corner of the school.  You will definitely meet new people.  "Les Miserables" won the Utah High School Musical Theatre Award for Best Musical in the State for 2018.  Here is more info on this year's show:




The show will perform Nov. 21-25 in the auditorium.  Rehearsals are 2 days a week from 2:30-5:00pm through the months of September and October. Then for 2 weeks in November, rehearsals are every day. We are willing to work with student athletes on fall sports teams.  If you are interested in being in the show, we can look at your practice schedule, and try to work around it.


Please spread the word to all of your friends about try-outs. See you there!
