Upcoming Auditions for Aesop’s Fables On Stage

Lexington Children’s Theatre is excited to announce auditions for our young professionals’ Summer Tour Aesop’s Fables On Stage (directed by Gabriel Slusser) to be performed traveling to festivals and venues over the summer in LCT’s Sprinter Van. If you are ages 15-22, we are excited to invite you join us for this production.
Audition Dates

Wednesday, March 22nd from 6:30-8:30pm
Sunday, March 26th from 4:00-6:00pm

Auditionees must attend an entire two-hour block.

Callbacks will be Wednesday, March 29th from 6:30-8:30pm

All performers must turn 15 and be two weeks past their COVID-19 vaccination date prior to Wednesday, March 22nd, 2023, to be eligible to audition.

Where and when does the show rehearse and perform?

Aesop’s Fables on Stage will rehearse about 3 times a week per week over the course of the last week in March up until Memorial Day (the end of May). After this, our Summer Tour Company will set off on the road to perform at various festivals, venues, and theatres throughout the Kentucky area. The rehearsal and performance schedule will be built to be flexible with your schedule and will allow for other summer opportunities, such as our Summer Family Musical. The Summer Tour Company will likely not have shows every single week, but we will hold Wednesdays-Saturdays every week for tour performances from May 27th until July 26th. We will also have an in-house performance period for family and the community to come see the show.

How many people will be cast and what ages?

This show has many characters, and one performer may play several roles. We are looking for 3 actors and a list of characters can be found in the Audition FAQ.

Synopsis for Aesop’s Fables On Stage

Everyone can use a bit of advice now and then. And everyone loves stories! Just ask the master story-spinner and advice-giver of Ancient Greece, Aesop! (A-sop? Ee-sop? Eye-sope? How exactly DO you say his name?) Jump into a world of color and fun as our trio of storytellers uses music, dance, and a dose of hilarity to re-enact some of Aesop’s most famous fables. You’ll laugh, clap, and cheer along with these beloved stories that teach us memorable lessons like “Don’t count your chickens before they hatch” and “Slow and steady wins the race.”
