Charlotte’s Web rehearsals will run from July 24-September 7. The director’s plan is to have Monday-Thursday rehearsals from 6 to 8:30 pm and Sunday rehearsals from 1-5 pm, though that may change depending on the cast’s availability. Rehearsals will run  5 days per week, but depending on the size of your role, you may not be required to attend every rehearsal.

Performances are September 8, 9, 10. Tech week starts Sunday, September 3 and there will be rehearsals every day. Note that this includes Labor Day. Tech week and all performances are mandatory! Previous commitments that will conflict with tech week and performances must be rearranged. Do not commit to any Young Footliters Production unless you can make it a priority and honor the guidelines and rules.  Be sure your family can support you in your schedule.




Auditions are Friday, July 14 from 3 pm – 6 pm and Saturday, July 15 from 9 am to 12 pm @ The Coralville Public Library.   A short memorized monologue or poem is recommended, but not required, particularly if the actor feels confident in their ability to do a cold reading. It is likely everyone will do cold readings in addition to any memorized monologues. Please fill out this AUDITION FORM  to secure an audition appointment.  Once you fill out a form, our producer, Liz Tracey, will contact you with your appointment time.  If you do not hear back from us within a couple of days, please email
