"Never Cry Wolf"


is a musical play based off of Aesop's fable of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf."
In July, Miriam, Kristen, and I will embark on a mission to put on this show in our neighborhood.
The musical will be open to all kids between the ages 6 to 13, and will last for three weeks (July 12 - 31).

The cost for the musical will be $15 per child (1-2 children per family) $10 per child (3+ children per family) who will be participating in the musical. This fee will be covering the costs for paint and costumes, which we will be providing. All fees will be due by the first day of rehearsal.

We will also require a signed hold harmless agreement and behavior contract for each child who joins the cast, both of which we will provide.

AUDITIONS will be held at my house on the Saturday 10th of July.
Ensemble auditions - 9:00 am Children not wishing to try out by themselves for singing, dancing and speaking should come at this time.

Main Character Auditions -The main parts audition is for kids who aspire to be Broadway stars... or for those just enjoy playing main roles.


There are speaking parts and feature parts for each cast member. We will post the cast list on this blog and will call each cast member individually to tell them which part they will be playing before the first rehearsal. SEE BLOG FOR SYNOPSIS AND DESCRIPTION OF CHARACTERS.

REHEARSALS -Each day Monday through Friday, 10 to 12:00 noon at my house.

There will be three different "stations" at the rehearsal; one for choreography, one for stage blocking, and one for singing. As the play takes shape, all cast members will be called more often. The schedule for rehearsals will also be posted on this blog and hard copies will be handed out at the first rehearsal.

PERFORMANCES Saturday, July 31st at 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm with a short cast party (every family bring some treats to share) following the evening show. Although we will set up as many chairs as we can, we will appreciate the audience to bring their own chairs or blankets to sit on the grass and enjoy the show.

If rain is anticipated on Saturday, we will reschedule for Friday July 30th at 7:00 pm.
