Eden Prairie Players is holding Auditions for our Children's Theater Workshop!
The Pied Piper of Hamelin Town
A one-act fairy tale by Steph DeFerle
directed by Gina Light
produced by Liz Michaelson
Who can save the children after the Pied Piper has led them away into a mountain? The stingy townspeople? The boy left behind? No! It's three unlikely heroes to the rescue - Whiskers (a slow-thinking cat), Squeak (a hard-of-hearing rat), and Chirp (a bird who can't fly). Join them as they come up with a plan and then face their fears to rescue the future of Hamelin Town and show us the importance of embracing those who are little bit different from the rest.

Auditions will be held Monday, March 26 and Tuesday, March 27 at 6:30 PM. You can attend either night.

Dress for comfort & movement. We ask that if girls wear skirts they also wear shorts or other pants under them. Please wear shoes, not flip-flops.
Before the Audition
A parent or guardian should fill out our online audition form. Having this done in advance saves a lot of time at the auditions. Before filling it out, please find a photo of your child who is auditioning that you can upload. It should be a JPEG file. Ideally, it should be a portrait-oriented picture of just the child, facing the camera. If you do not have this as a file on your computer, please bring a photo to the audition. Also, when filling out the form, please have your family calendar available as you will be asked to mark the dates of rehearsals that your child will be unable to attend.
