Skyler is about to turn 12, and she’s planned the biggest celebration of the year. But in the middle of the party, something mysterious happens – all the adults suddenly vanish! Trapped in the backyard, the kids realize they must create a brand new society. However when they elect Skyler’s older brother, Charlie, as their ruler, things really begin to spin out of control. Eventually the kids learn a big lesson in responsibility, while Skyler and Charlie develop a greater respect for one another.
AUDITION INFO: Come prepared to sing a short song of your choice and to read selections from a script that will be provided. The child with a parent/guardian is able to schedule an audition time at the link above. Performances are required of every cast member. If your child has a conflict for any performance, please refrain from auditioning and plan to audition for a future production. BDACT will make every effort to cast your child but please understand the cast may be limited based on the number of auditions. Questions? Email Mr. Estervig at email@example.com
