Curtains: School Edition

This summer we will be producing Curtains: School Edition with rising 8th-12th grade students and 2021 grads. It is audition only, meaning students must audition to be cast and we will select those we feel will be the best fit for the production. 

It’s the brassy, bright, and promising year of 1959. Boston’s Colonial Theatre is host to the opening night performance of a new musical. When the leading lady mysteriously dies on stage the entire cast & crew are suspects. Enter a local detective, who just happens to be a musical theatre fan! Packed with glorious tunes and a witty, charming script filled with delightful characters, Curtains is a hilarious journey for both performers and the audience.


This production is audition only, meaning students must audition to be cast and we will select those we feel will be the best fit for the production. 

  • Auditions will be Thursday, June 24 at 4:00 pm or 6:00 pm
  • Callbacks will be Friday, June 25 at 6:00 pm
  • If you will be out of town during auditions, please contact us in advance, so we can arrange another audition time for you.  You can call (405) 397-1824 or email Katie Morris at Please make sure you get a message back confirming we know your child will be absent. 
  • Please sign your child up to audition on Thursday, June 24 at 4:00 or 6:00 pm
  • Those auditioning should prepare one song from a musical, which reflects the style of the show. It should be 16-32 bars in length.  We will not have an accompanist for this audition, so students will need to bring recorded accompaniment.  
  • They should also come prepared for a dance audition.  The dance will be taught to them at auditions and they will dance in small groups for the audition portion.
  • Those who audition for Curtains may be called back to read and sing for specific roles.  Callbacks will be Friday, June 25 at 6:00 pm. You will receive an email on Friday, June 25 letting you know if your child is called back for which roles they will sing and read.

Again, auditioning does NOT guarantee you will be cast in the show. There are limited roles for this production.


  • As stated above, you will need to select a time and sign your child up to audition.  If your child is also planning to audition for Musical Theatre Company (MTC), please sign up for both auditions.
  • They will use the same song to audition for both and do not need to audition twice, but we need to know who is auditioning for each.  If they plan to audition at 6:00 pm, for instance, please register for the MTC audition and Curtains audition that are scheduled for 6:00 pm (if they plan to audition for both).
