All Southwest High School students in good standing are welcome to audition. Most do not require prior experience, and we encourage all to participate!  The annual fall Footlights Musical for freshman and sophomore students is unique in that all students who audition are included in the production.  

Auditions are generally held after school, with call-backs and final casting posted outside the theatre office. See the  SWHS Performing Arts Calendar for show dates; click here for the audition form. If a student is currently in a production, they may request permission to leave rehearsal to audition for an upcoming show. Please discuss any conflicts with the director or manager. 

As they say, break a leg!
