Trouper Auditions

Monday, January 29, 2018
4:00 PM - 7:00 PM at Fairytale Town

The Elly-Award winning Fairytale Town Troupers will be holding auditions for actors and singers—and your child can be part of the fun! The program is open to youth ages 5 to 18. No theatrical experience is required. Parents and guardians are welcome to accompany minors.

Audition appointments are required. To make an appointment, or for questions about the Troupers, please contact John Lee at mrlee@fairytaletown.org.

For Auditions: Actors should prepare a one-minute monologue—preferably memorized. Monologues can be sonnets or speeches from Shakespeare, passages from favorite books, plays or poems. Popular choices include selections from Shel Silverstein, Dr. Seuss, and Lewis Carroll. Please do not memorize a speech from a movie, TV show, or any video or audio recording. After presenting your monologue, be ready for cold readings of scenes from the scripts and possibly some movement exercises.

For Singing Auditions: If you would like to be considered for a singing role, please prepare a song. Songs should be 2 minutes maximum length (shorter is okay). The song should NOT be from Disney’s Beauty & the Beast.
