Auditions for Children’s Show by Eunice Players’ Theatre

Hot off the presses….Humpty-Dumpty is missing! Or at least that is what is being claimed by the Eunice Players’ Theatre as it introduces the summer children’s show. The directors, Debi L. Crawford and Van Reed, are pleased to announce that auditions will be held for “Humpty-Dumpty is Missing! or The Mysterious Case of the Fallen Egg”, written by Joseph Robinette, on June 8, 9 and 10.

The directors are looking for kids from ages 10 – 15 to fill the roles of some of the most beloved nursery rhyme characters known. The story opens with Sammy Scoop, a 1940’s private eye, facing the challenge of the sudden fall and disappearance of the jolly Humpty-Dumpty. Together with his side-kick, Alice from Dallas, they bring in all of the possible suspects who might have had a motive. Some of the suspects include Henny Penny, Mistress Mary, Rip Van Winkle, Peter Rabbit and his sisters, Rapunzel and the Handsome Prince.

Auditions for “Humpty-Dumpty Is Missing!” will be held for kids ages 10 -15 on June 8, 9, and 10, at the Eunice Players’ Theatre at 6:30pm. The directors would like to stress that no stage experience is needed. Also, the directors need kids in the same age range who would like to work in the other areas of the theatre such as the lights and sound, costumes, make-up and stage hands. This is an excellent hands-on experience for kids who would love a theatre experience!

The Eunice Players’ Theatre is located at 121 S. Second St. in downtown Eunice. The children’s show runs July 15, 16, 18, and 20-23. For more information about auditions, please call Debi L. Crawford at 337-457-2156.
