Flying Arrow Productions is pleased to announce auditions for

our upcoming musical "Paperbag Princess" by Robert Munsch.

Details are:

The dates for the camp are as follows(full days):
Week 1 - 18th-22nd July 
Week 2 - 25th-29th July
Show dates: 28th July 6pm and 29th July at 10am and 6pm.
Note: Expect to be at the theatre "loading out" until approximately 9pm on

Friday 29th July. All participants and their family members are expected to

help with load-out to ensure it is fast, pain-free and a team effort.

Audition dates are:
Thursday 2nd June at 4.30pm
Friday 3rd June at 3.30pm
You are only required to attend ONE of the two audition dates.
Auditions will be held at the Knights of Pythias Hall, 3rd Street West.
Please arrive to auditions early to fill in an application form, including with your parent to sign waivers and to fill in contact details and availability accurately. Bring your day-planners so you can fill these forms in accurately as we will be making decisions quickly!

The audition will require participants to be involved in an acting workshop and to sing both as a company and as a soloist.  It might seem a bit nerve wracking to sing alone, however, it is really essential we hear everyone's voice so we can be more aware of range and vocal abilities.  Those interested in a lead role could consider preparing a song, however, all participants will learn a song from the show at the audition to sing as a group and as a soloist.  Don't be frightened! Some of our pirates from last year's show had never sung before and did magically!  We are looking for keen and excited youth who want to have fun (and work hard!) and learn lots! 

Other Notes:

  • Youth must be aged 9 or older to participate.  
  • Generally youth aged 12 or older will be cast as the leads and be required to attend the camp in both weeks, whilst the younger children will attend the second week only.  Depending on the number of participants, including considering gender and age, this "rule" may shift slightly.
  • The camp costs $150 per participant. For families where this cost is a barrier please contact us for subsidy options. 
  • All participants must attend every rehearsal they have been called to and must be available for every day of camp.  This means participants are required to re-schedule out of town medical appointments (sorry!) and any in-town appointments so there areno absences. The camp is fast paced and all absences affect the entire team.  
  • Casting will occur on or before Monday 6th June and the "read-through & sing-through" with the entire cast will occur that week (6th, 7th or 9th June). 
  • After the first read-through, children will go home and learn all their songs and lines and return on the first day of camp ready to put the show together!
  • Soloists will be required for private singing instruction with our musical directors (before camp begins) and these rehearsals will be set with the MDs and singers individually for dates throughout late June and early July. Accepting a lead role acknowledges this agreement.
  • Additional dates and other announcements will be sent via email at the time of casting. It is vital one (or more) reliable email address is listed on the application form at the time of audition along with parent phone numbers and emergency contact numbers.
