Youth Audition – Hey Diddle Diddle: The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon

Van Wert Civic Theatre invites all youth ages 6 – 18 to audition for Hey Diddle Diddle: The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon.  A cat plays the fiddle; the cow jumps over the moon while the little dog laughs; and the dish runs away with the spoon…but then what? A group of storytellers are challenged to continue the story of the dish and the spoon from Hey Diddle Diddle. The tales that they spin find the dish and spoon fleeing from the Abominable Snowman, encountering the witch from Hansel and Gretel, becoming spies, and even fighting bad sushi.  All ages will love watching this funny play.  

Director Monica Campbell will be holding auditions by appointment on Sunday, June 19 and Monday, June 20 from 6:30 – 8 PM  at 118 S Race Street in Van Wert, OH.     If any of the times do not work, please email or call 419-238-9689 to leave a message.  Each audition time is limited to 6 youth.
