Dear “Footloose” Auditioner:
Thank you for taking the time to audition for “Footloose”.  All of us on the production team are grateful for the time you invested in being with us to make a memorable audition presentation. As you know from the comments at the informational meeting, the “Footloose” script has its own set of unique demands.  Therefore, competition is keen- especially when one considers that so many of those who auditioned were very talented young people.
We count you as among the talented! And we are also humbled by how many truly talented students there are at Walled Lake Northern. Be assured that your efforts and preparations are most appreciated. The entire production team would like to personally thank you.
Please know that many factors go into the final selection- and such factors have absolutely no bearing on your intrinsic worth as a person or your basic talent as a performer.
We encourage you (and your parents) to make good decisions about using technology or social media to share your emotions in response to the cast list. Sharing happy, sad, excited or angry thoughts will always have consequences on your relationship with the Performing Arts Department.  If you did not make it as a cast member, or did not get the role you initially wanted, please take some time away from your phone and computer. Be careful of burning bridges for the future.  If you would like to have a conversation with the production team in regards to your audition, please wait a few days, then feel free to talk to us.   We also strongly encourage you to stay involved in the production, through the tech crew, hair and makeup, props, or costume teams.
Congratulations to all who auditioned. These were extremely tough decisions that were made- which took a great deal of thought and consideration.
-The Footloose Production Team
