The production staff seeks young actors, ages 7 to 13, to fill about thirty roles in the Barley Sheaf Players' summer Kids' Show.

Please bring:

  • A prepared song (about 45 seconds)
  • Sheet music (accompanist will be provided).
  • A photo of yourself (like a school picture) to attach to your audition papers. This helps us put a face to a name while we're reviewing paperwork later
  • A pencil
  • A list of rehearsal conflicts.
  • A water bottle.
You will also be asked to do some cold readings from the script and learn a song and a dance movement piece. Auditions will start promptly at 1 pm on Saturday and at 5:30 pm on Sunday. Please feel free to arrive 30 minutes early to begin filling out the audition paperwork. If you would like to complete it before you come, send an email to the director and she will email you the forms. Auditions will last approximately 3 hours, so it is suggested that younger siblings who are not auditioning remain at home.

The first read through for the show will be Sunday, June 18, from 5-6:30, and will include a parent's meeting at the same time. Rehearsals begin on Tuesday, June 20, and are scheduled weekly for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 1:00 - 4:00. Performers cannot miss more than 3 rehearsals, and all rehearsals are mandatory beginning July 25.
