We are seeking young actors between the ages of 8 and 17 to audition for roles in our main stage productions. If you are interested in playing a part in an upcoming play, plan on attending one of our audition dates. For a schedule of our current season, visit Our Season webpage.


We are currently seeking actors for the following show:

Puss in Boots (Running April 12-28, 2018)


Auditions will be held:
  • Tuesday, February 27th from 3-5pm
  • Wednesday, February 28th from 3-5pm
About the play:
Before he joined the ranks of Shrek, Puss in Boots the Cat made a name for himself in his own adventure. Gifted to a poor miller’s son, a not-so-ordinary cat requests a pair of boots and sets out to help his master earn a better life. Puss in Boots uses his wits and bravery to trick his master’s way from rags to riches, making an honorable name for both of them and taking control over their happily ever after. Based on the fairy tales by Giovanni Francesco Straparola and Charles Perrault. Performed for children and their families by our company of young actors.

How to audition:
Our auditions are first come, first serve. We ask that a parent or guardian accompany actors in the theatre where actors may sign-in for their time slot, and parents or guardians can fill out the necessary paperwork and calendars. We want to make sure rehearsal and perfmance dates work for actors and families, so please bring a schedule or calendar with you so that we can plan accordingly. Actors are not required to stay for the full 2 hours and are welcome to leave when their audition is complete.

We ask that all actors interested in auditioning memorize a one minute monologue, poem, or song to perform at the auditions.

Contact Allison McCall, allison@kitetails.org, for rehearsal calendars.

If you are unable to attend auditions on our scheduled dates, please contact Theatre and Education Director Reba Short, reba@kitetails.org, or Theatre Educator Allison McCall, allison@kitetails.org, to schedule an alternative time.
