Animal Fables by Aesop

AACT Young Performers Anounce Open Auditions for
Animal Fables By Aesop

We are swept into a peaceful kingdom where the players at a country fair musically weave together many of Aesop’s enchanting fables, learning classic morals of “slow and steady wins the race” and “practice makes perfect” along with the more obscure “shun the quack” and “fancy dress cannot change the body inside” and are rewarded with real life lessons in a fun and exciting setting.


Where: Jan Dempsey Art Center, 222 E. Drak, Auburn AL
When: December 4th and 5th from 4:00 PM to 6:30 PM
What: Actors need to come prepared with a one-minute comedic monologue and to sing 30 seconds ONLY of any acapella song. There will also be a short dance and movement segment of the audition.

Auditions are open for teens ages 12-18.

We recommend you sign up for a time slot on Monday or Tuesday HERE
You are welcome to simple show up. If you do, we will put you in the next available time slot. The entire process will take about one hour.

Teens interested in working with technical/production roles and tasks should contact Cora Connelly by email HERE
