MCA Casting Call: Thirty-Three Little Pigs – Auditions

Monday | June 28 | 6:30-8:30pm
Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts | 1164 W 10th St

Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) is looking for actors to ham it up in this fantastic new twist on an old tale! Squeal with delight as the 33 pigs in the meadow continuously outsmart the hungry wolf, much in the style of Roadrunner and Coyote or Tom and Jerry. From Straw, Stick, and Brick pigs to Pirate, Chef, and Ninja pigs (plus 27 endearing others!), they each have their chance to misdirect, heckle, and hound the bumbling Big Bad Wolf, who only finds himself further and further from getting his fill of little piggies! Full of classic, pop-culture, and world-inspired piggie characters and references, actors and audiences alike will go hog-wild for this show!

Sign up for a 20-minute audition time slot.

Actors should come wearing clothing to move/dance in, and be prepared to read from the script and sing. *Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your time slot to fill out audition paperwork (**parent signatures are required). Auditions will start promptly at the designated time.

Mandatory all-cast and parent meeting on Wednesday, June 30 at 7pm.

Rehearsals: TBD based on role, July 6-29, Monday-Friday, 6:30-8:30pm, with possible weekends.

Performances will be in the green space between MCA’s Valencia Arts Center and Alverna Center, July 30-31, 2021. Fee $5
