The Loft Stage proudly presents Thornton Wilder's Childhood and The Long Christmas Dinner. Childhood is a provocative, sometimes chilling comedy, where Wilder renders a child’s eye view of the grown-up world, as father, mother, and their three children play a revealing game of make-believe. The Long Christmas Dinner is a charming slice of American life covering 90 Christmas dinners with the Bayard family.

The Little Mermaid Audition Information
Auditions for The Little Mermaid will be held September 12-14th in the Loft Stage.
Students are invited to an audition workshop on Friday, September 9th, immediately following the first LoftPAC meeting of the year.
Students should sign-up for a time to do a dance call (September 13th or 14th) as well as a singing/acting audition time (September 12th or 14th). Veteran Lofties are asked to sign-up early in the week if at all possible.
At the dance call, students will rehearse a short combo and audition in small groups. Not all parts require dance but dancers are encouraged to audition no matter their vocal ability. Please dress in comfortable clothes and shoes. No boots or flip-flops!
At the vocal/acting audition, students will be asked to either perform a song of their choice (minimum 32 bars) or we will teach a selection from the show for the audition. We recommend selecting a song in the Disney songbook or in the same genre. There is nothing to prepare for the acting audition. Come ready and willing to go under the sea!
Please sign-up for your audition as soon as possible!
