Little Shop Players Auditions!
January 4, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
The show must go on! The Little Shop Players are entering yet another performance season and we want YOU to come play with us! This year, we will be putting on The Adventures of Wu Kong and Friends, using techniques from the beautiful art of Chinese shadow puppetry! Wu Kong is a mischievous monkey who uses his magic and trickery to cause all sorts of problems for the Jade Emperor and his friends. Can the Buddha help him learn to be kind? We shall see! This will be a very fun, very exciting production different from anything we’ve done before! Because we will be using shadow puppets, actors will really get to use their voice to make their characters come to life! We think this will be a special opportunity, especially for children interested in acting who might suffer from the occasional bout of stage fright! (Don’t worry–Ms. Hannah still gets that feeling too sometimes!) Rehearsals will be held on Friday afternoons throughout the months of January and February and will include a special puppet making workshop with a guest artist from the Center for Puppetry Arts! Performances will take place at the Decatur Library and the Woodruff Arts Center. This year’s production is open to all children ages 8-11. Come join us! If you are interested in auditioning, have any questions, or just want to talk about puppets, you can email Artistic Director Hannah Hyde at email@example.com.
