AUDITIONS FOR THE WORLD PREMIERE PRODUCTION OF KAZOO.

SUMMARY

Kazoo,  is the story of Wren, a 13 year old girl. She’s an average girl, living a pretty normal life. She has a mom and loves to play her kazoo. She hangs out with her two best friends, Kaylee and Lily, in a treehouse that is their sanctuary. But then everything goes wrong – her mom dies, she has to move in with her aunt, her friends don’t understand what she’s going through and she loses her beloved kazoo. But with the help of a mysterious and funny stranger, Wren embarks on a journey to find her kazoo.

Kazoo is written in a storyteller style – there are eight actors who tell the story to the audience. All eight also become a character in the story.

Magic is woven throughout the story, from ghosts to talking rabbits to dangerous pythons. It’s a really fast-paced, fun and funny story with a lot of heart.

ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT

Matt Falduto was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs but fell in love with Iowa City upon his arrival in 1992. After graduating from the University of Iowa with a degree in English, he decided to fulfill his dream of starting a theatre company. Dreamwell Theatre has produced over 70 shows since its inception in 1997. Many years later, Matt found himself at Iowa State University, where he earned a Master’s in Education. He’s been writing plays since college. A number of them have been performed in the Iowa City area, including  Ozma of Oz, an adaptation of two of the Oz books, and Guinevere and Arthur, a new take on the Arthurian legend, both produced by The Young Footliters.

AUDITIONS FOR ALADDIN, JR. DIRECTED BY EVAN HILSABECK

S U M M A R Y

Disney’s Aladdin brings the famous movie to life, on stage. Aladdin, a kind but wily, street urchin, falls in love with beautiful Princess Jasmine, who he knows is waaaaay out of his league. It just so happens, however, that the Sultan has declared Princess Jasmine must choose a husband within the next day. After she turns down the offers from various wealthy suitors, Aladdin — with the help of a fast-talking, magical Genie — introduces himself as wealthy suitor Prince Ali Ababua. Meanwhile, evil royal advisor Jafar also has his sights set on the kingdom, and tries to convince the Sultan to force Jasmine to wed him. Will love conquer all? Perhaps – if love has a little help from a Genie.

Play Creation Workshop

Are you interested in learning more about the play creation process? Would you like to learn more about the storytelling, scene creation and design processes? If you are in grades 7-12 Young Footliters has an exciting opportunity for you!
Announcing the Play Creation Workshop Series, taught by Matt Falduto

Play Creation Workshop Series
For 7-12 grade

We are offering five workshops and each workshop is self-contained – students may attend as many as they want. All are focused on learning how to create a play from different perspectives – storyteller, actor, playwright, tech. These workshops will eventually lead to Young Footliters fall production – Dreamland, a play written by Matt Falduto and workshopped by Young Footliters actors. Workshops start in November. Registration is currently open for first two workshops.  Registration for other workshops will open soon.

For more information or to sign up please go to www.Coralville.org/recregister

Workshop Descriptions:

  1. Storytelling Workshop

Dreamland is written in a storytelling style, with the actors telling the story as well as acting as the different characters. This workshop will teach actors storytelling techniques – developing stage presence, utilizing one’s voice, utilizing one’s body and connecting with the audience.  The students will use the Dreamland script to work on these different skills.  Now open for registration.

November 18, 2017, Coralville Rec Center, 10 am – 1 pm

2.  Scene Workshop

This workshop will teach actors about dramatic action, the rules of scene writing, and how to apply that knowledge toward becoming a better actor. Using scenes from Dreamland, the actors will have the opportunity to shape a new play while learning new techniques and becoming smarter actors.  Now open for registration.

December 9, 2017,  Coralville Rec Center,  10 am – 1 pm

3.  Play Construction Workshop

This workshop is all about writing a play, using Dreamland as the example. Actors will learn the basic architecture of play writing – plot, characters, conflict, rising action, climax, resolution – and through a reading of the play, explore that architecture. While this workshop will be an excellent springboard for the aspiring playwright who wants to write her own play, knowing how a play is put together will also help actors improve their skills. Participation in this workshop comes with the added optional bonus of a critique of your own original play by Matt.  Opening soon for registration.

January 27, 2018, Coralville Public Library, 10 am – 1 pm

4.  Design Workshop 1

In this workshop, students will learn about how the set designer and the costume designer develop their vision for a show. Students will participate in creating the set and costume design for Dreamland and along the way learn a whole lot more about the tech side of theatre.  Opening soon for registration.

May 12, 2018, CCPA, 10 am – 1 pm

5.  Design Workshop 2

In this workshop, students will learn about how the lighting designer and the sound designer develop their vision for a show. Students will participate in creating the lighting and sound design for Dreamland and along the way learn a whole lot more about the tech side of theatre.  Opening soon for registration.

May 19, 2018, Coralville Public Library, 10 am – 1 pm

 

Workshop Instructor:

Matt Falduto – Matt has been creating theatre in the area for over twenty years, wearing every hat – actor, director, playwright, designer, and producer. He has directed five shows for Footliters – The Hobbit, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Charlotte’s Web, as well as Ozma of Oz and Guinevere and Arthur, which he also wrote. Other plays he’s written have been produced by City Circle, Dreamwell Theatre and Rage Theatrics. He has done theatre workshops for many different groups over the years. Matt has a Master’s in Education from Iowa State University.

Auditions for A Charlie Brown Christmas and What Could Go Wrong the Night Before Christmas

We had such a great turnout for auditions for The Best Christmas Pageant Ever and after re-looking at the length of Charlie Brown Christmas and the size of the cast, Young Footliters Youth Theatre has decided to add another performance opportunity to our season!  We are always looking for ways to add performance opportunities for our youth!

What Could Go Wrong the Night Before Christmas is a hilarious one-act play that will be performed every night before A Charlie Brown Christmas.  

Please see below for a summary of each show:

What Could Go Wrong the Night Before Christmas

A host attempts to do a lovely reading of The Night Before Christmas but is stymied by every imaginable interruption.  First, the children show up wearing costumes and outfits for all the wrong holidays, then it ends up the mice might not be stirring, but they sure are shuffling as they play a game of Go Fish.  By the time the clatter on the rooftop sounds more like a deafening rock ’n’ roll drum solo, our poor host is about to have a meltdown!  On top of it all, our not-quite-classic (and definitely thinner) Santa stops filling stockings to do a PSA on the dangers of smoking and also plugs the usefulness of stain remover pens.  In the end, our host finishes the poem, Santa hurries off to make the rest of his deliveries, and your audience is energized with the fun of the Christmas season.

A Charlie Brown Christmas

Directed by Krista Neumann

A family-friendly holiday musical based on the beloved animated TV special. Join Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the whole Peanuts gang as they dig past the commercialized gimmicks of presents and decorations to rediscover the true meaning of Christmas. Through a pageant and a spindly tree, Charlie Brown and friends bring the holiday spirit back to life for families once again!

Actors in 4th-12th grade are invited to sign up to audition for either/both the musical (A Charlie Brown Christmas) and the play (What Could Go Wrong) at the same time.

PRODUCTION  INFORMATION:

Rehearsals for both shows begin Sunday, October 1 and will typically be held Sunday -Thursday for Charlie Brown and Monday-Wednesday evenings for What Could Go Wrong.  Both will rehearse in Coralville, space TBA.

Performances are November 17 & 18 at 7PM and November 19 at 2PM at The Coralville Center for the Performing Arts, 1301 5th Street, Coralville.

Tech week and all performances are mandatory! Previous commitments that will conflict with tech week and performances must be rearranged.
