The 2014-15 Season of the Theatre for Young Audiences is set to start with the beloved classic, Knuffle Bunny, A Cautionary Musical.
It sounds so simple, just a quick trip to the Laundromat in Brooklyn with Daddy, Trixie and her beloved Knuffle Bunny, but before you know it, things go horribly, hilariously wrong. Chock full of adventure, song and gigantic dancing laundry, Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical tells a tale of firsts: a stuffed animal's first trip in the laundry, a little girl's first words and a Daddy's first time dealing with his child going “boneless.” Based on his beloved Caldecott Honor–winning picture book, six-time Emmy Award winner Mo Willems. Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International.
Auditions for Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical will be held Monday, August 4th, at 7pm in the Slidell High Auditorium. The roles are as follows:
DAD. An overconfident new father who pretends to be heroic but is truly a bit incompetent in household maintenance (23-36 years)
MOM. A new mother who is adjusting to life with child. She is loving caring, and slightly exasperated. (23-36 years)
TRIXIE. A 16-month child, played by an older child or an adult. A simple minded-toddler who loves her stuffed bunny and is bright-eyed about the world. (Female, 8-25 years)
3-5 PUPPETEERS, who sing and dance in various roles, including a life-size bunny and “The Pigeon.” (All ages)
Please prepare 16-32 bars of lighted-hearted music and read a brief passage from your favorite children’s book.
