Please come prepared to sing a portion of a song for your audition. It can be any song of your choice, it does not have to be from this musical. If you would like Gary Stoff to accompany you on his keyboard, please bring the music. We will also be holding dance auditions and readings for those who want to audition for a speaking part. If you want to dance we would suggest that you dress comfortably, and wear shoes that you can dance in. If you want to read for a part, we will provide pages from the script for you to use.

Three other things to mention:

  1. If you cannot make any of the auditions, please email Dr. Karcher at dkarcher@chaminade-stl.com to let him know you would still like to be part of the show.
  2. Please plan to be there on time for auditions, we have a lot to get through and it disrupts things if you wander in an hour late.
  3. Please share this with your family, friends, classmates, coworkers, etc. The more the merrier!!

If you have any questions, please email Dr. Karcher at dkarcher@chaminade-stl.com or Debby Mooney at debbymo@aol.com. Stay up-to-date with the latest news and announcement from the Fr. Scheid Players on Facebook!

Random Acts of Sportsmanship Spotted During CYC Basketball Season!

CYC Sports has a long tradition of providing children throughout the St. Louis area with the opportunities to compete with their parish and friends in a variety of sports.  For more than 75 years the CYC has been a ministry of the Catholic Church in St. Louis, sponsoring Archdiocesan playoffs, recognizing league, district and area wide champions.

In addition to recognizing winners of games, CYC staff feel it is imperative to search for and recognize acts of sportsmanship at athletic events.  They know that as a Catholic organization the CYC must help children to display their Christian values in all parts of their lives, especially during athletic competition.  In an effort to recognize and reward sportsmanship among CYC participants, the Random Act of Sportsmanship (RAS) program was initiated in 2009.

Hundreds of RAS have been reported since the program began, and as the 2018 CYC Basketball season is winding down, Random Acts of Sportsmanship are still occurring on courts all across the Archdiocese.

The latest RAS is about one coach's small act that impacted many:

St. Joseph-Manchester’s 8th Grade girls basketball team was scheduled to play its final game (ever again) at St. Clement. As the coach and players were warming up and getting set to do battle, St. Clement Coach Ryan Beller approached and asked if this was the St. Joe’s team’s last game. He said that he had purchased roses with ribbons in the school colors tied to them for the St. Joe's girls to give to their moms prior to the game.

In the words of another coach: “All I can say is WOW, what a classy and generous gesture by Coach Beller. In my humble opinion Coach Beller showed the girls, me, parents, and everyone in the gym Saturday what CYC sports are supposed to be about, and I thank and applaud him!!"

We encourage everyone to keep sending us RAS, and we will keep posting them. They stand as examples and inspiration for everyone who hears about them.

Keep your eyes open for those Random Acts of Sportsmanship by players, coaches, officials and fans. Then report them to the CYC Office. Simply send an email describing the act to:  RAS@cycstl.net
