Auditions

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.

We are currently seeking actors for the following show:

Wonder Tales from Vietnam


Auditions:Auditions will be held on Tuesday, November 7th and Wednesday, November 8th from 3-5pm.

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. 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 a rehearsal calendar.

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.

Wonder Tales from Vietnam

Have you ever wondered why ducks sleep on one leg? Why the sea is salty? Why the toad croaks so loud before it rains? See stories that you’ve never heard of before brought to life on our stage. Meet the heros like...Rooster! Toad! And Swarm of Bees! Cheer on the animals of the zodiac race, learn a new dance called the salt grinder, and journey to heaven for a meeting with the great and powerful Jade Emperor and his hound of heaven. Performed for children and their families by our company of young actors.

Funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
