Ashley Crowne - Assistant Director

Our Schedule is as follows:

Rehearsals: April 22 - May 30, 2024

Production Dates: May 31 - June 9, 2024

Rehearsal Days: Monday / Wednesday / Thursday 6-8:30pm

This will increase as we get closer to production dates.

Saturday June 1st 1&7pm

Sunday June 2nd 4pm

Friday June 7th 7pm

Saturday June 8th 1&7pm

Sunday June 9th 4pm

No Conflict Zone: May 20th - June 10th, 2024. Excused absences are graded school events or illness or emergencies. Other absences (such as vacations, or other events) are not excused and may

result in being removed from the production.

Because this show opens on May 31st, we will be holding rehearsals on Memorial Day Weekend, including our Tech Rehearsal on Saturday May 25th. Students MUST be available for rehearsals during Memorial Day Weekend in order to be cast and participate in this production.

All Callbacks, meetings, rehearsals, and productions are held at our location at Springwater Church in Gresham. 3445 SE Hillyard Rd.

Callbacks: If your student receives a callback, that will take place on Wednesday, March 20th from 7-9pm in person. Receiving a callback does not mean your student is cast. Not receiving a callback does not mean your student is cut. We expect to cast the production soon after that.

We welcome students without previous theater experience. An Information Meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 5th at 7:30pm. This meeting will also be available on Zoom. We will record the meeting, so if you are unable to attend or watch live, you will be able to see this meeting. The Zoom Link will be updated soon.

Online Auditions will be accepted through 11:59 pm on Friday, March 15th, 2024.

This is a firm deadline! Please do not wait until the last hour to audition!!

The Video Audition Process

​For this event's auditions, we would like you to submit a video that includes the following: 


A slate is a basic introduction of who you are for the audition panel.
Please have your student say the following about themselves:

My name is _________.

I am ________ years old.

I am _______ Feet/Inches Tall.


Deliver a comedic monologue of your choice around 60 seconds but that is no longer than 60 seconds. A Monologue is a scene performed by one person, acting as their character.

No makeup, costumes, accents or props, please.

You can find your own monologue by doing a web search for “audition monologues for kids”
