Title PTAG Announces Auditions for "All I Really Need to Know I Learned In Kindergarten


Wow, we are already moving into the summer production of the year. The upcoming musical is based on Robert Fulghum's series of books filled with anecdotes about "the meaning IN life not the meaning OF life."  Here is the Guild's official announcement regarding auditions.




All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten

Based on the books by Robert Fulghum 

Conceived and adapted by Ernest Zulia

Music and Lyrics by David Caldwell

directed for PTAG by Jef & Kathy Dinsmore 

Dates: Auditions will be held by the directors on Monday, April 04, 2016

 Times: Interested actors will be received between 5:00pm and 8:00pm that evening

Where:  Punxsutawney Presbyterian Church at the marked Choir Room

Plot:  Based on Robert Fulghum's best-selling books, Kindergarten takes a funny, insightful, heartwarming look at what is profound in everyday life. This tightly woven adaptation has earned standing ovations from Singapore to Prague? from L.A. to D.C. It's an evening of theatrical storytelling in revue format, with monologues, dialogues, and multiple voice narration, enhanced through the use of live piano underscoring, which provides fluidity, charm, and emotional texture, and seven optional original songs. The delightful stories feature colorful characters such as: a shy little boy who insists on playing the "pig" in his class production of Cinderella and steals the show; a man whose dream of flying carries him high over Los Angeles ? in a lawn chair buoyed by surplus weather balloons; a "mother of the bride" who's staged a perfect wedding?until the bowling ball of fate rolls down the aisle; and a modern-day Greek philosopher who finds the meaning of life in a piece of broken mirror from World War II. These stories celebrate our very existence, from the whimsy of childhood to the wisdom of old age.

      Cast Requirements: 6 to 8 actors from the age of 15 and up

 Audition Process: Readings of the director's choosing will be read to determine who is best suited; also each auditioner is expected to sing with the piano a song of their choice
