Thank you for your interest in Zombie Prom at San Marino High School. Below you will find audition and callback information, please read below for details. 


Monday 12/11/2023

4:30 PM - 8:00 PM/Singing and reading from the script

Tuesday 12/12/2023

Wednesday 12/13/2023 (Callbacks if needed)

4:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Friday 12/15/2023 - Casting Notice posted after school. Please accept your role by emailing me your cast biography.

You will need to prepare:

  • a 30-second (16 bar) song 

* must sing along with a backing track (karaoke version). This is required. 

* ideally, select a song from a Broadway show – do not do a pop song unless that is all  

  you have to sing. Pop music will not highlight your voice in the way that we need to 

  hear it. 

* You will perform your song and then read from the selections available at the audition 

  • complete the Google form before your audition day and the availability form at your audition

  • If you are only interested in auditioning for the ensemble, you do not need to do a reading as  

  part of your audition. This means you will not be considered for a speaking part (including 

 featured ensemble). 


Rehearsals for Zombie Prom will be Monday through Friday, from 4:30-7:30 pm unless otherwise stated. Rehearsals will run longer as we get closer to show dates. Additionally, we may need to hold rehearsal on the Saturdays leading up to the show. If you are unable to attend rehearsals, this may not be the show for you. Please list any conflicts on your audition sheet. Conflicts do affect casting, and unexcused absences will not be tolerated because of the negative impact on the production and scheduling process. 

Attendance Policy 

More than one unexcused absence or more than two excused absences may result in your termination from the show. Please try to avoid scheduling appointments during rehearsal times, as those will not be considered an excused absence. Any absences during dress/tech weeks can result in your removal from the show. 

Parent Volunteers 

If cast, your parents/guardians will be asked to help. There are a variety of jobs that we need parent help for, including box office, providing dinner for dress rehearsals, assisting with tech, backstage help, and more! The help of our parents/guardians is crucial to our program’s success, and the directing team is so grateful! Parents & guardians are also encouraged to become part of the SMHS Drama boosters, who help coordinate help for the shows. 

Activity Fee 

All members of the cast must pay $25 musical participation fee that helps offsets the costs of the production.

LEAD Character Breakdown, From the Concord Website

DELILAH STRICT: Female, 35-50 (Range: Mezzo Soprano Belt, G33-A5) School Principal; icy and hard on the outside with a heart of gold. Should have good comic timing - think Carol Burnett or Bette Midler. 

TOFFEE: Female, HS Senior (Range: Soprano Belt, F3-E5) Good girl from the right side of the tracks. Hopelessly in love with Jonny. Sweet and funny - think Gidget or Sandra Dee. 

CANDY: Female, HS Senior (Range: Mezzo Belt, F3-G5) Nervous and hyper. Always chewing her nails. Think a young Marge Simpson. 

COCO: Female, HS Senior (Range: Soprano Belt, F3-G5) Coco isn't bad, she's just drawn that way. Think Jessica Rabbit with a dry wit. 

GINGER: Female HS Senior (Range: Soprano Belt, F3-G5) Class nerd, sweet and means well but she verges on annoying. Think Gilda Radner. 

JONNY WARNER: Male, HS Senior (Range: Rock Tenor, C3-C5) Good kid from the wrong side of the tracks. Sincere and funny. Think Ross from "Friends." 

JOEY: Male, HS Senior (Range: Tenor, E3-F4) Class Jock. Big, handsome and dumb. Think "duh..." 

JOSH: Male, HS Senior (Range: Tenor, E3-Eb4) The class geek. Aspiring journalist. Think Pee Wee Herman without the weird voice. 

JAKE: Male, HS Senior (Range: Rock Tenor, E3-F4) Probably voted the most popular. He's sweet and personable and is deeply in love with Candy. Think Richie from "Happy Days." 

EDDIE FLAGRANTE: Male, 35-50 (Range: Baritone, D3-Ab4) Newspaper Journalist; opportunistic tabloid reporter who roots for the underdog and "justice" in the end. Think Geraldo Rivera but with Kevin Klein's comic appeal. 

CHORUS: Assorted Parents, Secretaries, Copy Boys, TV Floor Workers and Singers.
