Eagan HS Summer Community Theater Production, 2020





Eagan High School Summer Community Theatre Family,


We are very sad The Wizard of Oz will not grace the stage at Eagan High School this summer.  Please consider auditioning next year for Oz.  We are so excited to get back to in-person performing and will take great joy in putting on this magical show!  Auditions will be next May.


Though we will not be having a staged production this year, the show must go on!  The production team of Jason Hansen, Jackson Cobb, and Jim Cox are creating and producing a Virtual Cabaret for any former cast member of an Eagan High School Summer Community Theatre show.  It is free to participate and the cabaret will be posted on YouTube two weekends in July for anyone and everyone to view.  We will have a Venmo account attached to the cabaret video so viewers can donate and support the future of Eagan High School Summer Community Theatre and its performers and tech team.


In lieu of in-person auditions, if you are interested in being part of this exciting project, we are asking you to upload a 20-30 second video of yourself performing your proposed cabaret performance song.  A cappella singing or using canned or live accompaniment is appropriate.  If you are selected to perform for the cabaret, we will discuss accompaniment options with you at a later time.  The songs for the cabaret can be anything musical theatre.  We are looking for variety classic, contemporary, lyrical, belt have fun!  If you can work it out to do a duet or small group virtually with other past cast members, thats great too!  


Audition videos are due Memorial Day- May, 25th.  All performers will be notified the weekend of May 30th if they will be included in the cabaret.  


The video and audition form (found here- https://www.eaganhs.portal.rschooltoday.com/page/2590) should be uploaded to (Please create a folder with your first and last name as the title): 



If chosen to participate, here are some details of what the commitment would look like:

            1) Cut your song to a 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 minute performance.

            2) Work with Jim and Jason to create a final video and audio product.

            3) Have a completed video shared with the production team by June 12th.


If you have questions regarding this project or the requirements for auditioning, please contact Jim Cox:  james.cox@district196.org.  


We are so excited to get our Eagan High School Summer Community Theatre family together… even if it’s virtually… and to share your gifts with the rest of the world!  


Our best,

Jim Cox, Jason Hansen, & Jackson Cobb
