STARFISH CIRCUS AUDITIONS at WEBER HIGH SCHOOL

January 21 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm Weber High School $20 – $60

Starfish Circus comes to Weber High School, and participation is open to all students in the greater Ogden area. The show will go up in just two weeks, with students auditioning Monday January 21st and performing shows February 1 & 2 at the Weber High School Auditorium. In the days between, the new circus performers will train with professional circus coaches, learning to balance each other in acrobatic poses, climb and wrap themselves in aerial silks, hang from static trapezes and build comedy scenes.
Starfish Head Coach Allison Williams says, “On January 21st, we’ll do a workshop-style audition, where everyone gets to learn simple skills on trapeze, aerial silks, hula-hoops, partner acrobatics and more—and no-one has to stand in front of the group alone.”
With a tight rehearsal schedule planned, students will work like circus pros. “We switch from building basic skills to working on choreography, and between individual and group work,” adds aerial hoop coach Marina Petrano. “The fun comes from accomplishing amazing things with your fellow performers.” Rehearsals will be after school each day, with each student doing a two-hour rehearsal with their act group.
Students will learn choreographed routines on aerial silks and trapeze, group acrobatics and traditional opening and closing “Spectacle” numbers, as well as having room for individual creativity in comedy and specialty acts.
Auditions are open to all students and recent grads ages 4-21 in the Ogden area—students should come dressed to run, jump, and play, and with any props for special skills they want to show, like hula-hooping, parkour, baton twirling or breakdancing. Coach Shani Blueford says, “We never know what we’ll get until they audition, but there’s always some very unique skills that get featured in the show!”
