Auditions for “Channeling Grimm”

January 18, 2023, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Regional Performing Arts, 2530 Portage Mall

Cameron doesn’t know what to write for an honors English assignment on the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. Luckily, friend Jaime has the solution… watch TV versions of the tales! But when Cameron points the unusual looking remote at the screen expecting Netflix or Apple TV, instead they find the wackiest assortment of fairy-tale themed programming! There’s a Project Runway style competition show called “Project Ballgown,” a Frog Prince soap opera called “The Green and the Beautiful,” a game show hosted by Magic Mirror called, ”Who’s The Fairest One of All?,” and a sitcom starring Rumplestiltskin! The teens also find news stories, a Law and Order style show, a movie trailer, and of course, commercials!

Actors for all roles must be ages 8-18 at the time of auditions. Rehearsals will be Monday and Wednesday evenings – a specific schedule will be released after casting. Shows are March 17 (7pm), 18 (2 + 7), 19 (2), 2023 at Regional Performing Arts Center, in the Portage Mall.

Actors should pre-register for a time slot/group with CastingManager. Walk-in auditions will be accommodated if there is space available.


This is a complete list of roles. Cameron and Jaime are the only two characters who do not “double” – having the actor play an additional part.
