About the plays:
Charlotte's Web:
Meet Wilbur, the irresistible young pig; Fern, a girl who understands animals; and the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who helps teach Wilbur the true meaning of friendship and loyalty. To save Wilbur and with the help of their barnyard friends, Charlotte writes miracles in her web that bring Wilbur all the way to the county fair.
Based on the novel by E.B. White and adapted for the stage by Joseph Robinette.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day:
Alexander is having a bad day. A terrible day. A horrible day. To be quite honest, it's a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. It is enough to make anyone want to go to Australia.
Adapted for the stage by author Judith Viorst and Shelly Markham.

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.
