The room was quite small and not very distinctive, but already she felt at home here. When she looked at these walls, she saw more than stone and plaster. She pictured props leaning in the corners and posters of Stage Magic's many successful shows lining the walls. Soon this little room would be filled with talent and heart. Annabelle walked toward the whiteboard, eager for everything to begin. it had seemed like forever since she'd gotten approval to found the club. Day after day she'd checked the signup sheet, and had been filled with joy every time a new name was added to the list. Now it was finally time to kick things off.
The club president drew each letter in a large, blocky fashion. She even took the time to fill them in with various designs and different colors of chalk. Perhaps she was going a bit overboard, but she wanted anyone who walked into the room to know that this was a place to express themselves. After spending several minutes decorating the board, Annabelle decided to practice her speech one last time.
"Greetings, fellow artists! I am Annabelle Wolfe, your club president."
She wondered for a moment if that sounded a bit too dramatic, but immediately dismissed the thought. That was just stage fight talking! This was drama club, after all. Still, even without a real audience, her palms were already beginning to sweat. Annabelle was normally a very confident speaker, but she had never done anything this big before. Sure, she had been in productions. She had stood and given speeches to four times the amount of people that would soon take their seats in this room. But those people hadn't been relying on her. Now she had to be a leader. She needed to step up. The nervous Gryffindor took a deep breath, then began again.
"Greeting to you- singers, dancers, actors, and playwrights! Welcome artists of every kind to the Stage Magic Drama Club! I am your president, Annabelle Wolfe. I'd like to start off by saying it is a pleasure to meet you all!"
Having regained her bearings, Annabelle spoke with much more confidence. Her excitement had built with each new face that had come into the room, and she had begun to feel her old speaking skills flooding back to her. It wasn't long before she was delivering this same speech to a room full of potential club members.
"As you all know, today is audition day! This is the day you stand up on stage and show this school who you truly are!"
Really it would just be Annabelle who would observe the auditions, but that didn't sound quite as... well, big.
"So here's how it works. When I'm done speaking here, you all will go out into the hallway. You'll come in one at a time and show me what you can do. Sing a song, do a dance, read me part of a play you've written... Anything goes, as long as it's fabulous!"
Annabelle grinned at her audience. No, at her new friends.
"Good luck everyone! I'm sure you'll be amazing!"
Annabelle will respond to each student's audition. Don't worry, everyone will get in ^_^ I'll probably wait until a few people have posted, then respond to them all at once.
PM me if you wanna RP! We can also discuss things over Discord if that's easier ^_^
