Stage kisses, pinkeye, inciting World War III — these are only a few of the many things that can go wrong during the production of a play. From the author of 15 Reasons Not To Be in a Play comes a full evening of the horrors and hardships that befall those who feel the call of the stage. In a series of hilarious examples, this play proves that drama can be a very dangerous thing and it must be avoided at all costs.


  • Open to youth ages 5 to 18 (and not graduated from high school).
  • Prepare a joke to tell
  • Possible readings from the script.  Non-readers will be given assistance.

If signing up for an audition time, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time.  Please complete the audition form online, or download/print and bring the form with you.  Online forms must be completed no later than 5 pm on the day of your audition.
