About Auditions (Where do I go? What do I do?)

When are auditions?  Where do I go?
Auditions are Friday, June 23 at 1 p.m. and Saturday, June 24 at 1 p.m.  at the SCT Playhouse located at 518- 1st Ave. E. in Spencer.  Doors open half an hour prior to stated audition time.  Please note that it is not necessary to attend both audition times; one or the other will suffice.

What do I need to bring with me?  Should I prepare anything in advance?
Please be prepared to sing, dance and act!  We’ll teach a song for everyone to sing, a short dance, and we’ll also be playing some improv and theatre games.  Additionally, we will be reading from the script. You’re welcome to read the script beforehand- they are available for checkout at the SCT Business Offices on a first-come, first-serve basis.  You can stop in anytime during business hours (M-F 11-5:00) and check out a copy to look over.  Parents & Guardians- please bring your child’s schedule/ calendar with you in order to list rehearsal conflicts on the audition form.  

Closed Auditions:
Auditions for Pirates Past Noon are closed, meaning that only the child auditioning and the Directing/ Management team of the production are allowed in the audition space.  There will be a waiting room provided for parents.

Dropping off & Picking up:
Auditions will last approximately 2 hours, but this is just an estimation- the number of kids who show up to audition affects how long they run; we do our best to keep it within 2 hours.  Please come in with your child to auditions at the beginning so you can fill out the audition form for them, or help them fill out the audition form (this is especially important in regards to the schedule part of the audition form).  Once the form is filled out and auditions begin, you may stay and wait for them, or leave and come back after a couple of hours.  You may also instruct your child to call you when they are finished with the audition; a phone will be available for them to call you.


About the Show (What is The MagicTree House: Pirates Past Noon - Kids?)

What’s this show all about?
Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon KIDS is an adaptation of the fourth of Mary Pope Osborne's award-winning fantasy adventure books from the Magic Tree House book series, which has sold more than 100 million copies and is available in more than a hundred countries around the world.  This time around, Jack and Annie’s tree house takes them to an exotic island with pirates, where the two discover the power of friendship and the simple pleasures in everyday life.

The two siblings return to visit the magic tree house on a dreary, rainy day. They find a book where the sun is shining and the waves are crashing, so they wish to travel to this tropical place. They realize that they are in the eighteenth-century Caribbean, the time of pirates! The siblings meet Captain Bones, a mean old pirate who captures the two and forces them to help him find buried treasure. It's up to Jack and Annie to find their way back to the tree house and make their way home.

When are rehearsals?
Rehearsals are from 6-8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, although they will run later the week the show opens.  Rehearsals begin Monday, July 17 and run until the show opens on Aug. 10.  Not every child is called to every rehearsal; the time commitment usually depends on the size of the role!

When are performances?
Performances are Aug.10, 11, and 12 at 7:30 p.m.; Aug. 13 at 2 p.m.

Where are performances?
Performances will take place at the SCT Playhouse at 518- 1st Ave. E.
