Where:
PA 113

What to prepare:
Please prepare 16 bars of an upbeat, kid-friendly song, as well as a 45-60 second comedic or storytelling monologue.
We are looking for actors with big personalities that kids will love to watch. Give us all you have in the audition!
This is a colorful show with colorful characters, so we need actors to match!

If you have any questions, either contact Jake Sullivan (jake.sulli721@gmail.com) or talk to Dr. Hustoles. We hope to see you there!

Character Descriptions:
Brer Rabbit – A good-natured trickster, who doesn’t realize how his actions affect others.
Uncle Remus – The narrator of the show, as well as Brer Rabbit’s conscience.
Brer Fox – The disgruntled, easily annoyed friend / enemy of Brer Rabbit. Constantly trying to out-do his long-eared friend.
Brer Bear – A simple, kind, and slow friend to Brer Rabbit and Brer Fox. Constantly duped by Brer Rabbit.
Lil’ Tarrypin – Brer Rabbit’s timid turtle friend.
Miss Meadows – The motherly firecracker friend of the critters.
Sister Gator – The very hungry neighbor of the critters who would just love some rabbit stew.
