What a Knight!

Children's Show 2018

Craig Hawes; Directed by Deborah Young

When squire Watt Cobblers is expelled from Knight School, he reluctantly becomes Merlin's new apprentice. But soon Camelot Castle collapses into chaos. Merlin has lost Excalibur, King Arthur's daughters have been kidnapped and his brave knights have turned into chickens. Watt and his new found friends, Dusty Dragon and wayward Princess Alice, set off on the biggest quest of their lives. But can our unlikely heroes rescue the princesses, save Excalibur and defeat the evil Black Knight? The answers are found in this magical production!

Auditions

  • Saturday, June 2, 2018 at 1:00 PM
  • Sunday, June 3, 2018 at 1:00 PM

You only need to attend one of the above audition sessions in order to be considered. No appointments are necessary. You should plan to spend about 2 hours at the theater for auditions (perhaps a little more or less, depending on turnout).

For auditions, please prepare a 30 second selection of a song you sing well, and that shows your vocal range. We will have an accompanist, so please bring sheet music. It is best to use songs from a musical that features children, such as such as Annie, Honk, Oliver, or Newsies, and there are many more. For more information about choosing a song or finding sheet music, please contact our music director using the email below. You will also be asked to read a short scene and play an improvisational game. There will be movement required, so dress comfortably, shorts are best.

If you have any questions about auditions, you may e-mail the director at Debbie_young@comcast.net, or Tina, our music director, at KJStuber@aol.com.

Cast requirements: We are looking for up to 30 boys and girls, ages 7-13.

Watt Cobbler - who is failing at becoming a knight
Princess Alice - who is failing at becoming a princess
Merlin - who is failing at being a magician
