AUDITIONS

 

 

SUMMARY

An eclectic group of students compete for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.

Calling all actors, the Fall Plays are back in business, but we need a new cast member. We’re looking to cast the part of Wanda Bun in Once Upon a Playground. 

Wanda is the edgy leader of a squad of young teens who are all wrestling with aspects of themselves they may not like.

 

Once Upon a Playground deals with the challenging subject of being different from everyone else, bullying, self acceptance, and self love.
