Junior Playhouse

DATES: December 7 and 8
TIMES: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM, by appointment (see below).

Using humor, freshness, and the same central character, the “Jack Tails” folklore has been handed down – father to son, brother to sister, cousin to aunt – for generations. Irrespressible Jack, the universal underdog, uses his wiles and bravado to cleverly outwit mountain country “upper-dogs” and foes, alike, in this staged collection of colorful adventures drawn from the Appalachian story-telling tradition.

Up to ten (10) youth performers, grades 6-12 to play multiple characters in story-telling style.  Roles will require big personalities and strong presentational skills with excellent physical expression.  All genders and ethnicities.

Will be held evenings beginning at 5:30 PM M-F, December 13-16 and January 4-27. (Saturday may be included in finals weeks.)

January 27 – 29 (No daytime school performances).

Cold reading from the script.  Please bring a recent photo or headshot and be prepared to provide rehearsal conflicts. Audition registrations forms must be signed by a parent or guardian in order to audition.
