Thank you for your interest in signing up for an audition for the Indian Knoll Talent Show. All audition sign-up materials (completed sign up form, lyrics, music files, etc) are due by Monday October 21st.
*Each student participating in auditions must submit a completed Audition Signup Form - this lets us know that the student has permission to participate in this event. Audition times will be assigned and emailed out by October 21st.
Please review these dates before signing up to audition for the Talent Show as attendance on these dates is mandatory (exception: Backstage Crew Members do not need to attend auditions but must still complete this Signup Form to participate in the show):

Guidelines regarding audition logistics and content will be available for review at our IKES PTA Website (
) and will be emailed to you upon completion of the Signup Form. A few key things to remember about auditions:
~ All varieties of acts are encouraged to audition - any (elementary age appropriate) skill that can be shown to an audience is welcome at auditions.
~ A panel of judges made up of IKES Teachers, Principal, and Assistant Principals will observe auditions and determine which acts will be selected for the show.
~ Due to the time limitations and logistics, there will be NO MAKEUP AUDITIONS for any reason.
~ Students will be asked to perform up to 45 seconds of their act. Acts should be less than 3 minutes in length due to time limitations of the show.
~ Upon arrival at the school, please park at the back of the building and check in at the back doors. You will wait with your student in the hallway outside the cafeteria until your student's audition is called. Students in ASP will be escorted to auditions by an ASP worker at their audition time.
~ Please plan to arrive no more than 10 minutes prior to your audition time.
~ Auditions are held in the cafeteria and are closed. Only the performers, parents/caregivers of performers, and judges/mentors are allowed to observe the audition.
~ Acts will be selected based upon level of polish and preparation at time of audition as well as whether the material is appropriate for elementary age audiences (lyrics, content, costumes, etc).

All music tracks must be Background, Karaoke, or Instrumental versions of the song.
Singing Acts will not be permitted to play the original version of the song and simply sing along with the person on the original track.
