Maggie's Magic Teapot by Faye Parker is an Irish treat just in time for St. Patrick's Day. Maggie and her grandfather, Old Billy O'Morra, are about to lose their home to the heartless Shaemus O'Hoolihan. What he really wants is to force Maggie to be a servant girl to his daughter Kitty. But, fortunately for Maggie, there's a little leprechaun named Sean who can magically grow larger and smaller at will, and decides to help Old Billy and Maggie defeat Shaemus. Combines live actors, puppetry, song and dance in a “sure 'n 'begorrah” good time for all.
Auditions are being held Sunday January 24th and Monday January 25th 2010, at 7 p.m. each night, at the troupe’s performance venue, Harmony Artistic Center, 3979 Parkway Lane, Hilliard, Ohio. A headshot and résumé are requested, but not mandatory; a monologue is not required. Auditions are open to the public, and will be cold readings from scripts, which will not be provided in advance.
