Much Ado About Nothing Auditions – 1481461
03-26-15 – Kansas City, MO>St Louis, MO – Much Ado About Nothing is two love stories intertwined.

On one hand, we have the formal and romantic courtship between Claudio (a star player for the Missouri football team), and Hero (Missouri student, and daughter of Leonato, the Missouri athletic director). Don Pedro (the Missouri head coach) helps to bring the two together.

On the other, Beatrice (Hero’s cousin and a Missouri grad student) and Benedick (the Missouri assistant coach and former star player), work hard to give the impression that neither is the least bit attracted to the other—after having been burned by each other before. Comedy insues as Pedro, Claudio, Hero, and friends to their level best to trick them into overcoming their reservations with staged conversations about how much each loves the other.

But, as we all know, the course of true love never runs smooth—Don John (Pedro’s bastard brother and a not-so-star player), jealous of Claudio’s positon on the team (and with his brother), gather his cronies and plot mischief to destroy Claudio’s happiness and discredit his brother.

In the end, it is truly Much Ado About Nothing as John’s plots are foiled, lovers are reunited, and everyone lives happily ever after! — Project Type: Live Event

Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there’s more to the story than meets the ears.

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand…and his name is Shrek.

Auditions are OPEN auditions for ALL actors ages 5 and older.

They run many a gamut, are as durable as radiators, and look upon the future with a disarming optimism. Alternately bewitched, befuddled and becalmed, they are the stuff of which heroes are made-heroes and buffoons. They are true offspring of Adam and Eve, victims of all the ills that flesh is heir to. They have survived a thousand calamities by the skin of their teeth.

In present-day North Florida, in a town called Starke, in a trailer park called “Armadillo Acres” (though there are few armadillos and even fewer acres), Betty, Lin and Pickles sun themselves with complete indifference to ozone depletion. Ever hospitable, they set aside their large sun reflectors to welcome the audience, the “fourth wall” clearly not their style. Established now as our bottle-blonde narrators, “The Girls” also introduce Jeannie Garstecki, agoraphobic and unable to step outside her trailer, much to the exasperation of her toll-collector husband Norbert.
