Auditions set for “Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing”

Antelope Valley College’s Theatre for Young Audiences will hold open auditions for “Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing” 2-5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20 and 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 21 in the Applied Arts Building, room APL 216.

Adapted for the stage from Judy Blume’s classic children's book, “Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing” is a comical play that takes a fun and honest look at the timeless travails of youthful sibling rivalry.  Fourth grader Peter Hatcher tries to find a way to get his parents to pay attention to him instead of his baby brother, the disgustingly cute but terrible toddler who calls himself “Fudge.”

No prepared audition piece is required, although being able to tell a good, clean joke will be an asset.  Those auditioning should come dressed in comfortable clothing and wear athletic or simple dance shoes, and be prepared to perform any specialty "trick" (roller skates, scooter, unicycle, etc.) they might know.

Auditions are open to all members of the community.   

Performances are scheduled at elementary schools throughout the Antelope Valley from March through May. Those who are cast will be expected to enroll in THA 120D, “Rehearsal and Performance: Children’s Theatre” and THA 121, “Theatre Production.”
