NAHS Theatre Presents Smokey Joe's Cafe - Auditions Begin Jan. 25

Smokey Joes Cafe tile The NAHS Theatre Department is excited to announce auditions for its spring musical, Smokey Joe's Cafe - The Songs of Lieber and Stoller! Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, including "Hound Dog," "Jailhouse Rock," "Love Potion #9," and "Stand by Me," this musical revue takes audiences on a electrifying journey through the Golden Age of American rock-n-roll as the cast sings and dances to the iconic music of Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller.

Auditions for Smokey Joe's Cafe, the high school's spring musical, are fast approaching. They will be held virtually on Monday, January 25th, Wednesday, January 27th, and Saturday, January 30th.

All high school students are welcome to audition.

Students will need to sign up for a monologue / vocal audition on either Monday, January 25th or Wednesday, January 27th, then plan to attend the dance auditions at either 10 a.m. or 6 p.m. on Saturday, January 30th. For the monologue / vocal auditions, they need to prepare a 1-minute monologue from a play or musical and a 2-minute song in their vocal range. Students will learn a short combo from the song "Ruby Baby" for the dance auditions.
