BJ Theater Company Purim Spiel Auditions

Calling all actors — experience and aspiring! It’s time for the BJ Theater Company’s annual Purim Spiel. Each year, we produce a splashy, spectacular Spiel with a fun-filled theme. This show is open to age 5-eighth graders, and no previous theater experience is necessary. Every child has speaking lines and singing solos in the show, which is a nurturing, enriching experience for performers at all levels.

Rehearsals will be held in-person on Sundays:

  • K & First Grade: 11:30-12:30
  • Second-Eight Grade: 1:30-4:00

If you hope to participate but have scheduling concerns, email Emma — we’re flexible! Please note: In keeping with BJ’s policies, all participants must be fully vaccinated. The show is only open to children who are 5+ years old. If you have questions about the schedule, participating via a virtual option, or more, please contact Emma. Are you more interested in helping out behind the scenes? Email Emma  about opportunities for involvement in tech crew, our instrumental orchestra, and more.


How to Audition:

Everyone who is interested in participating in the show will be cast, but auditions are required to help us get to know each actor and think about the right role for them. Auditions will be held in-person on December 21 or can be video-taped and sent in to Emma by December 29. Participants should sing a segment (about 16 bars) of a song they feel comfortable and confident singing. Happy Birthday, the ABCs, and Twinkle, Twinkle always work just fine!
