Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon KIDS

Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon KIDS is an adaptation of the fourth of Mary Pope Osborne's award-winning fantasy adventure books from the Magic Tree House book series, which has sold more than 100 million copies and is available in more than a hundred countries around the world. This time around, Jack and Annie's tree house takes them to an exotic island with pirates, where the two discover the power of friendship and the simple pleasures in everyday life.

Age Range 7-13

Our age limits are guidelines. Sometimes 6 year olds audition, but remember, cast members MUST be able to read. Sometimes we accept older students for particularly challenging shows. If you are outside the age range and would like to audition, contact us for details.

Audition Requirements

This is a workshop style audition that requires very little advance preparation. No poem or monologue is required for this audition. You will be asked to sing a simple song that you know well. Songs such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star or Row, Row, Row Your Boat are perfectly acceptable for students of elementary school age. Older students should sing something more challenging, preferably from a Broadway Musical. Be sure to dress in clothes and shoes that you can move in and provide us with a current picture. A resume is optional, but recommended for candidates who have been in three or more productions.
