Big Bad Musical Auditions

We have decided on our Children's Theatre show! We are doing Big Bad Musical.
Auditions will be held April 26th from 9-12 at the Empress Theatre. To audition, you will need to be prepared with 16 measures of an upbeat song. Call backs will be on Tuesday, April 29th. Ages are 10-18.
Pioneer Drama Service, who licenses the rights to this show says this about the script:
A courtroom has never been more lively and fun than in The Big Bad
This smart and wickedly funny musical is great for young actors
and audiences of any age. The jury—your audience—must decide the outcome of the
biggest trial ever in the fairy-tale world! The notorious Big Bad Wolf is being
slapped with a class-action lawsuit by storybooks of quirky characters who want
to get even: Little Red Riding Hood, her Grandmother, the Three Little Pigs and
the Shepherd in charge of the Boy Who Cried Wolf. With Sydney Grimm as the
commentator on live court TV, the two greatest legal minds in the Enchanted
Forest—the Evil Stepmother and the Fairy Godmother—clash in a trial that will be
remembered forever after. As our wronged fairy tale characters testify, the wolf
seems deserving of all that’s coming. Yet, even though the infamous Evil
Stepmother resents doing pro-bono work on such an obviously futile defense, Mr.
Wolf makes a good case for himself. Was he born a criminal, or made one? This
musical has it all—minimal set and costume requirements, a good balance of stage
time for each character, multiple endings to make every performance unique and
Bill Francoeur’s toe-tapping tunes!
