About the play

A counselor has opened an office to see how various fairy tale characters are getting along.  He quickly discovers that nobody has lived ’happily ever after’ at all!  Sleeping Beauty will do nothing but nap, the Frog Prince refuses to give up his amphibian ways and nothing will pry Cinderella away from her beloved cinders.  The counselor sets about making everything right again, with equally disastrous results.  Added to the fractured fairy tale fun are five catchy musical numbers, cameo roles for a chorus of fairy tale characters and plenty of silliness for everybody involved!

What to Expect at the Audition

We'll be looking for cast and crew members for the next show soon.  Young people not wanting to act are encouraged to apply for one of the many backstage positions such as costuming, set painting, ushering, etc.

Mid Michigan Family Theatre holds open auditions for the majority of its shows. They consist of cold readings from the scripts along with other activities chosen by the director. These might include announcing a prepared monologue, improvisations, or something similar. Unless noted, auditions are for
all ages.


There will be a little bit of paperwork to fill out prior to your audition.  Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled audition time in order to complete it.  Your punctual arrival and departure when dismissed by the director will keep the audition process running smooooooothly.  


If you have any questions, please contact the director, Bill Gordon at (517) 339-2145.


A Note on Production Fees:


Like other sports and recreation programs for young people, there is a participation fee to be in the production. We charge reasonable, modest fees. With these fees you will receive a script, costumes, props, and help with overall production costs. Adults will not be assessed a production fee but are asked to help mentor younger actors and/or help with production duties such as costuming, set building, etc.  Thank you.
