Sample Bios (These are just samples - do not make yours just like these, or they all look/sound the same.)

 

Sara Durham (Mrs. Potts u/s Belle). Sara is a senior and is very excited to be a part of the fall production. Her list of stage successes includes The Music Man, Singing in the Rain, Our Town, and Seussical: The Musical. She is also a member of Thespians. Aside from performing, Sara also likes to travel, write, and be with friends. She would like to dedicate her performance to her Family and her fellow Castle Cast!

 

Daniel Jepson (Villager, u/s Cogsworth). Daniel is greatly anticipating this year’s first production. He enjoys every aspect of the theater, from the stage to running sound! He has been in productions ranging from Our Town to Singin’ in the Rain and looks forward to finishing high school with another great year of drama. Daniel wants to thank his parents, Peter, Kristen's mom for driving him home from rehearsals and Ms. Heetbrink for this opportunity.

 

If this is your first show or you do not have much theatrical experience that is okay. Let people know it is your debut on stage. Let them know what you like to do outside the theater or how you came to be involved in the theater. Thank those that encouraged you to try the theater, or helped you prepare for your audition. If you have taken voice, dance or acting lessons, feel free to include that.

 

If you have a long list of shows that you were in,  you will need to pick the most meaningful shows or most significant roles that you have had.

 

Be personable, and remember that you are sharing yourself with the audience in your bio. You are representing not only youself, but also your family, the Drama department, Lake Washington High School, and perhaps even your college recruiter as well.
