          One age appropriate monologue

          Personal statement regarding your background and training, experience in performance, and personal goals in the theater.
      Each component of the audition should be approximately one minute in length.
      Videotapes, DVDs, or CVD s of high school productions are not admissible.

      All samples must be labeled with the applicant's name and date the work was completed.

      Works copied from photos, magazines, and masterworks are not considered strong portfolio material.

       a reader, recollections of reading in multiple settings, inside and outside of school, and your current experiences with reading.

       of your life (for example, academic and career goals, friendships, relationships)? This text can be a work of fiction, nonfiction,
       poetry, a collection of short stories, or other literary genre. Provide a brief summary of this text and explain how it connects to
       your own life experiences.
  3.   You have been asked to form a student committee to review the current literature requirements for the 9th grade curriculum at
