Audition & Clinic Information: Fall Musical - Guys and Dolls

North High's Fall Musical - Guys and Dolls!

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical of 1951, this is the story of the hip, wise, and funny characters of a fast-paced, hand-to-mouth, rough and tumble New York City. Based on the short stories of Damon Runyon, Frank Loesser's musical version we see tough but honorable gamblers meet their match in the iron-willed and faith-filled Save-A-Soul Mission.  The clash is hilarious, romantic, and most assuredly exciting.

Auditions take place September 5th & 6th.  All interested should go to the North High Theatre page on Blackboard or the Choir Blogspot for more information and audition materials.  There is even a YouTube video called "DGN Guys & Dolls Dance Audition" to help you with the brief dance audition, though no previous dance experience is needed. A free audition clinic will take place during the Summer Theatre Workshop on Tuesday,  August 21st.  The team needs tons of guys and lots of dolls. We hope to see you all at the auditions.

To be a part of the clinic, sign up for the Summer Theatre Workshop by emailing Mr. Pappageorge at:

Thank You D99 Marching Band!

The faculty and administration of North and South High Schools extend deep thanks and appreciation to the 200 students of the District 99 Marching Band for their tremendous efforts in two community parades today. Students endured extended temperatures (Heat Index 104) as they performed musically and marched with precision.

A special thanks is also extended to the parent volunteers of the Mustang Band Boosters and the DGN Music Boosters for providing hundreds of iced water bottles, as well as support along the parade routes to ensure students were safe and all needs attended to.

Congratulations to all for great performances today and for representing District 99, and our communities, in such a positive manner!
