15 Reasons Not To Be In A Play
Youth theater for ages 9 and up
Directed by Anthony Mendoza and Janet Lazarus

This is a play about not being in a play, ironically expressed through a hilarious series of monologues, duets, and ensemble scenes. The actors parade out on stage and begin to explain to the audience all the reasons why being in a play is a terrible, horrible, outrageously dangerous thing. The reasons range from long and twisted stories of traumatic childhood theatrical experiences, to how the weather can change from sunny to apocalyptic if a cast breathes too much at once, to the simple explanation that “Plays suck.”
Please be prepared to stay for the entire audition. Auditions will consist of reading from the script and improvisations. A prepared monologue is recommended but not required.
Rehearsals will begin Saturday, February 4 and will be every Saturday afternoon, tentatively from 1:30–4:30 pm.
We may have additional rehearsals as needed on a weeknight to be determined. The play will have three performances in May. Watch our website for rehearsal dates, production dates and show location.
Ages 9 and up (by audition only)
$200 (Scholarships are available.)
