Westville Boys' High School has announced auditions for its annual musical revue show The Time Of Your Life - an 80s Extravaganza, directed by Luke Holder and choreographed by Fiona Barnes.

Auditions are open to all Westville boys and any high school girls from all surrounding schools in Durban.

Singing auditions take place on April 16 from 09h00 to 14h00. Five minute slots are allocated to each candidate. Candidates will be required to prepare one of the following songs:

Female (soprano): Alone by Heart
Female (alto): Heaven Is A Place On Earth by Belinda Carlisle
Female (general): Don't Stop Believing by Journey (original version)
Male (tenor): Can't Fight This Feeling by REO Speedwagon
Male (baritone): Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley
Male (general): Don't Stop Believing ("Glee" version)

Sheet music and recordings of the original tracks are available upon request, and a repetiteur will be provided on the day of the audition.

Dancing auditions take place over three evenings: - April 17 (18h30 to 21h00), April 18 (19h00 to 21h00) and April 19 (18h30 to 21h00). Dancers will be taught a routine at the audition, and candidates are reminded to wear appropriate clothing.

Singers will not be required to attend a dancing audition, but will be required to do some dancing in the show if they are successfully cast.

All candidates are required to book either a time slot for the singing audition, or an evening slot for the dancing auditions. Please note that a maximum of 40 candidates can be accommodated per evening for the dancing auditions.

The show runs in August this year, and some rehearsal during the June/July holiday will take place. These details will be communicated to all successful candidates at the first rehearsal.
