Auditions will take place in the auditorium at 2:45 from September 13-15. Please prepare a one-minute monologue for the first day of auditions.
Only people new to Walnut Grove High School drama, or have only taken the drama fundamentals class, should prepare a monologue and appear on the 13th and 14th. The 15th will be for callbacks and all who are interested to come.
If you are new to drama, whether you are in 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade, this is the show for you! You will be guided in the fulfilling task of producing a show. The third day of auditions will be open to any veteran drama students who have been in shows at Walnut Grove before. We are looking for acting and tech crew!
Mary Zimmerman’s The Secret in the Wings adapts a group of lesser-known fairy tales to create a theatrical work that sets their dark mystery against her signature wit and humor. The framing story concerns a child and the frightening babysitter with whom her parents leave her. As the babysitter reads from a book, the characters in each of the tales materialize, with each tale breaking off just at its bleakest moment before giving way to the next one.
The central tale is told without interruption, after which each previous tale is successively resumed, with each looming disaster averted. As in Zimmerman’s other productions, here she uses costumes, props, sets, and lighting to brilliant effect, creating images and feelings that render the fairy tales in all their elemental and enduring power.
This show is going to be student directed by Caitlin Lumpkin. Caitlin is a senior here at Walnut Grove High School and very excited to meet you all! She says this show will be packed with great people, good fun, and lots and lots of amazing acting. She hopes you all come out and audition!
