AUDITIONS: WINNIE THE POOH

On a search for his favorite honey snack, Winnie the Pooh discovers that his friend Christopher Robin is not at home and has left a note. A silly adventure begins in the Hundred Acre Wood as Pooh and all his friends mistakling think that dear Christopher Robin has been captured by a creature called the Backson!

Actors are not called for all rehearsals, only rehearsals where they are being used for a scene.

Rehearsals will be worked around actors' schedules as much as possible, although if you are going to be out of town for 2 full weeks, you will probably not be cast. As always, we consider homework a priority!

  • A picture (a school picture or snapshot is fine).

  • A resume or list of shows done.

  • Your conflicts for the rehearsal period.

All conflicts MUST be submitted prior to callbacks. Please check with your school choir/band/theatre director, your soccer/baseball coach, or any other adult who schedules your time, about all conflicts PRIOR to auditioning.  
If additional conflicts arise after casting, it may result in an actor being replaced.
