The Yellow Boat

The Yellow Boat
2015 Teen Non Musical Production

Big Deal Productions is pleased to announce auditions for our upcoming Children's Theatre presentation of TheYellow Boat by David Saar.  The story of The Yellow Boat is a glorious affirmation of a child's life, and the strength and courage of all children. This dramatization is based on the true story of David and Sonja Saar's son, Benjamin, who was born with congenital hemophilia, and died in 1987 at the age of 8 of complications.  A uniquely gifted visual artist, Benjamin's buoyant imagination transformed his physical and emotional pain into a blaze of colors and shapes in his fanciful drawings and paintings.  Benjamin's remarkable voyage continues to touch audiences around the world.

Auditions are open to all performers in grades 8 - 12, and will be held on Wednesday, March 4 and Thursday, March 5 from 7:30 - 9:30 pm at the Community Arts Center.  Callbacks will be held on Sunday, March 8.  Please prepare a 60-90 second comedic or dramatic acting piece.

If cast in the show, there is a participation fee of $215, which includes a show shirt.  Rehearsals for this production will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings, and Sunday afternoons.  Cast members will be responsible for securing appropriate footwear/tights/undergarments and stage make-up for the show.  Performances are scheduled for May 6 - 9.
