Title PTAG Announces Auditions for "The Fabulous Fable Factory" & "Treasure Island"


Auditions for the first show of 2019 will be held January 7 and 9. Two one-act plays will be combined for a Children's Theatre performance scheduled for March 1, 2, and 3, 2019.

"Treasure Island"
by Steve and Kathy Hotchner and based on the Robert Louis Stevenson novel
Roles Available:
Long John Silver (a pirate) - Adult male

Captain Smollet ( a sea captain) - Adult male
Jamie (an adventurous tomboy) - teenage female
Red (a pirate queen) - Adult female
Cross Bun (a female pirate) - Adult female
Ben Bulba (a fearsome old pirate queen) - Adult female

The magic of this play comes from the way the entire audience creates the storm at sea, a mosquito-infested jungle and a treasure cave filled with eerie ghosts. Five children become members of Long John's treacherous pirate gang while others join Captain Smollet's crew. The children team up with the fearsome Ben Bulba to help defeat Red the Pirate Queen and save Long John. The audience must decide whether to hang Long John or let him sail away forever to inhabit children's dreams

This delightful story of an inquisitive youngster who discovers an old factory operated by a Mr. (or Mrs.) Aesop and an assembly line of seven (or more) fablemakers. Some of Aesop's best-known fables including The Ant and the Grasshopper, The Lion and the Mouse, The Tortoise and the Hare and others are enacted as the young boy (or girl) surprises everyone, including himself, with his moral-making ability. This charming play is a director's delight as it presents ensemble performing at its best.

Auditions are scheduled for January 7 and 9, 2019 from 6 - 8 PM at the Presbyterian Church on the corner of Union and Findley Sts. Signs will be posted for the entrance on Union Street. Actors can choose to be in one play or both and roles are of varying sizes. This a perfect opportunity for someone interested in getting their theatrical feet wet. Persons involved in the dinner theater scheduled for Jan 26 are also encouraged to audition as the rehearsal schedules will only briefly overlap.
