Wiley Awards- performers wanted!
The DHS Broadcast Production Studio is putting together the first-annual end-of-the-year awards show for students called the Wiley Awards. As this awards show will be structured similar to Oscars, we are interested in having a variety of performances. We are looking for soloists, duets, dances, skits, monologues, or other performances that work with the show’s theme, “Old Hollywood”.
The Wiley Awards will be at 6pm on May 19th in the Theater. Performers will have free entry to the show, and tickets will be available if any friends or family that would like to attend. We ask that performers also be available for a brief rehearsal from 2-4pm on May 16th to prepare.
If you know of any performers who are interested, students can fill out the interest form linked below.
Also, if you know any students who would be interested in being the host of the awards show, we are also looking for a host! Students can audition individually or in a pair. Students can sign-up to be a host(s) with the link below.
We know how many talented students are in our DHS performing arts programs and would greatly appreciate their support.
