Auditions will be by appointment only on July 13 and July 14, 2016. If called to audition please prepare a one-minute comedic monologue.

If you are auditioning for Rhyme Time, please prepare a song.

 

2016-2017 Season:

wit, and puppetry mayhem. Children laugh and learn about the importance

of good nutrition and active lifestyles. Roles:

multiple male and female character voices.

“Fitastic” is the show host. Requires actor who is physically

fit and can do gymnastic stunts or dance. Should be comfortable with

interact with the puppets and Fitastic.

 

Rhyme Time and Discover Math and Science – These shows feature toy

theatre size stages, simple paper puppets and shadow puppets, music,

singing, and audience participation for preschool audiences. Our solo

performers must be good singers and very good with small children.
