Biggity Bad and the Three Little Pigs by Edith Weiss

Presented by NYT Jr. and Directed by Kimberly Jongejan

Higgelty and Piggelty are two devil may care pigs who spend their days avoiding work.  When they are joined in the pen by a third pig, Hamlet, who is a truffle pig and talks funny (ala Shakespeare), life changes drastically on the farm.  Things change even more when Buzz the Turkey Buzzard convinces Rolf, a tender-hearted and lonely wolf, to become “Biggity Bad” and capture the pigs.  Run for your life chases plus a surprise ending!  Click here for character information.

The Worst Play in the History of Ever by Jeffrey Wolf

Presented by Northglenn Youth Theatre and Directed by Kimberly Jongejan

Jeremy, a middle school student, has written a play and the drama club is putting it on for the whole school.  But with only three days and a lot of re-writing to do, can Jeremy, Holly, Mrs. Wright and the wacky cast of characters pull it all together?  Shakespeare, sock puppets, farm animals… this hilarious show proves that sometimes not every idea is a good one, but then again, the show must go on!  Click here for character information.

Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw and Adapted by Christopher Morse (The stage play based on the musical My Fair Lady)

Presented by Northglenn Youth Theatre and Directed by Kimberly Jongejan

On a rainy London evening in 1913, linguist Henry Higgins has a fateful encounter with an impertinent Cockney flower seller. When the girl shows up at his laboratory the following day, the haughty and impulsive Higgins makes a bold wager with a colleague: employing his mastery of language he will transform Eliza Doolittle from a rough street urchin into an aristocratic lady in just six months’ time. And so begins Eliza’s halting metamorphosis … but what will become of the poor girl once this “experiment” is over? This lighter, livelier and shorter version of Shaw’s original blends social satire, philosophical wit and a heated battle of the sexes is wonderfully entertaining.  Click here for character information.

FAQs:

  • Can I be in more than one show?
  • We are hoping to allow the most involvement that we can safely allow, so an actor may only participate in one show.  An exception may be drawn if we do not get enough people auditioning.
  • Will everyone who auditions get a part?
  • Roles are not guaranteed.  Depending on how many people audition, youth may or may not be cast.
  • If I don’t get a callback, do I still get a part?
  • If you do not receive a callback, you are no longer being considered for a role.
  •  What sizes are the casts going to be?
  • “Biggity Bad” will cap at 16
  • “The Worst Play” will cap at 14
  • “Pygmalion” will cap at 12
