Monday and Tuesday
March 12 and 13
6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Play written by Larry Damico
The action in this playful romp begins with Goldilocks dashing into the house of the three Chop brothers. These are the same three pigs who lost two of their houses to the Wolf, and they are still emotionally scarred from the incident. With the help of their friendly neighbors, the Squeal sisters, they help Goldilocks hide from the witch who is chasing her. But when the witch puts a spell on Goldi, forcing her to stay in the house, the pig sisters leave on a mission to find a potion that can act as a spell remover.
Toss into this fractured fairy tale the Big Bad Wolf, his French weasel friend Oui Oui, two very different witches, and one confused and somewhat snooty storyteller and watch the mayhem that ensues.
Students auditioning will read from the script. Lindsay Redman, the director, says, “This should be a fun, worry-free audition process.” Those auditioning should also bring a list of all conflicts they may have during the rehearsal period, which is extremely important to the director and the success of the show.
Rehearsals will be held every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, beginning April 2, 6:00-8:00 p.m. There will also be a few Saturday and/or Sunday afternoon rehearsals as needed. Rehearsal times will be extended during the week prior to opening. Eleven performances will be given on Fridays, May 4 and 11 at 7:00 p.m., Saturdays, May 5 and 12 at 1:00 and 4:00 p.m., Sundays, May 6 and 13 at 2:00 p.m., and school matinees on Tuesday, May 8 at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. as well as 2 p.m. in the Black Box Theater.
There will be a $40 performance fee for each actor selected, which is due at the first rehearsal/parents meeting. Scholarships are available, if needed.
Redman graduated from St. Cloud State University with a degree in directing. She staged “Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook” and “Mother Goosed” for The Phipps Children’s Theater. She has been teaching and directing around the Twin Cities area working with various companies, including Ashland Productions, Project Success, and Elision Theatre, for which she is the director.
