for "The Perils of Goldilocks"


Theatre 29, Director John Wright, and assistant

director Lizzie Schmelling will hold auditions

for the Theatre 29 Summer Youth Theater

production, “The Perils of Goldilocks”, made up

from 2 one act plays performed for and by the youth of the Morongo Basin.

The first show, “Goldilocks”, by Matt Casarino,

is a comic spin on the classic fairy tale.

Goldilocks is once again confronted by the Three

Bears...and Joe, the Bears' species exchange

student. From Goldilocks' house to the Bears'

home and back again, a slew of fairy tale

characters cross Goldilocks' path to give advice

and tell their tales. This fresh adaptation

teaches young audiences the meaning of

responsibility through its clever, upbeat dialogue and audience participation.

The second show, the second act of the

production, is “Goldilocks on Trial”, by Ed Monk.

Goldilocks is on trial for breaking and entering,

will she be found guilty and sent to prison, or

will the truth come out? It's up to Judge

Wallabee and some very silly jurors to decide,

after hearing testimony from Goldee, the

bickering Three Bears, and surprise witness

Merwin the Big Bad Wolf, among others...

Wright & Schmelling are looking for 20 performers

with most being dual or multiple roles with an

age range from 8 through adults, there are some limited roles for ages 8– 10.

Auditions for “The Perils of Goldilocks” will be

held at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, May 6th, at the

Theatre 29 main stage, 73637 Sullivan Road,

(Adobe and Sullivan) Roads, Twentynine Palms.

Those wishing to assist backstage with set

construction, lighting, props, costumes or as

stage hands should also come to the auditions.

The Theatre 29 Summer Youth Theater production of

“The Perils of Goldilocks” will run from June 28

to July 27, 2013, Friday and Saturday evenings at

7:00 pm. Matinee performances will be at 2:30 pm July 7 and July 21.
