FBA Theatre Arts is looking for students to be extras in the upcoming production of “Narnia: The Quest for Aslan”.  

Acceptance of a part would require the parent/guardian to bring the student to a couple of Saturday practices (Jan. 6 and Feb 3 both 2018, 10am- 4pm), also ensuring the student is there for dress rehearsals and performance days (basically the week of Feb 12-16, 2018). A costume will be provided for the extras at a cost of $20 per child.

Extras Needed

1.  The Director is looking for two students (approx. 6-8 yrs. old) capable of memorizing lines, developing characterization, and taking direction related to stage movement; who can play the parts of two small beaver children; Bucky and Twig (preferably boy and girl).


2.  The Director is also looking for students to fill non-speaking parts: Robin, Blue Bird, Flower 1, Flower 2, Flower 3, Bubble Bee, Bear (approx. 5-10 yrs. old). These parts require the student to take stage direction and be capable of moving about the stage.


If any of these opportunities appeal to your child’s dramatic side and with your support, are able to fulfill the commitment required, please attend an Audition after school: Tuesday, December 12, 2017, 3:45-4:30, 

Rm.G-210b. (2nd floor Grace Building – across from the computer lab). Parent/guardian must be present with student at the audition.
