About the Show: It's Dad's turn to tell his three rambunctious kids their bedtime stories, but when he gets fuzzy on the details, the classics get creative: a prince with a snoring problem spices up The Princess and The Pea, The Boy Who Cried Wolf cries dinosaur instead, and Rumpelstiltskin helps turn all that pesky gold into straw. You may think you know your fairy tales, but not the way Dad tells them.

 

While these are classic storybook tales, know that this is not your average youth show. Actors will be challenged to think creatively about their characters and give a new, sometimes improvisational, and innovative perspective to these timeless stories. The goal is to not only make a show that everyone enjoys, but to create a rehearsal environment that is both fun and inviting for all.

Audition requirements: Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. All roles are for actors 12-18. Youth under the age of 12 are welcome to audition and special consideration may be given for certain roles.
