The Providence Players of Fairfax (PPF) is a non-profit community theater troupe. All participation is on a volunteer non-compensated basis.


Please plan on attending just one of the initial audition times but plan on staying for all or most of the audition period – we will likely have you up and down on stage more than once.

Please RSVP to and let us know all of the initial audition dates you could attend and which, if any, you prefer. We appreciate flexibility!

AUDITION PROCESS: Auditions will consist of readings from the script – No monologue required.  We recommend that auditioners have a familiarity with the story – the book is short and wonderful, so you may wish to read it before auditioning.

AUDITION SIDES: Sides for the audition process will be supplied each evening.

AUDITION FORM: Resumes and headshots will be accepted, but are not required.  Each auditioner will be asked to fill out a form for consideration.

MEMBERSHIP: The Providence Players of Fairfax is a membership organization. Membership is not required to audition. If cast, actors in addition to production team members will be asked to become members of the Providence Players ($10) for the season (if they are not already).

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION:  With the exception of the four children, the other characters can be played by men or women. The director has a strong preference for building a multicultural cast (African American, Asian American, Hispanic/Latino, Indian/Middle Eastern).  We are looking for strong ensemble players, who can be creative and play characters that imply an animal or fantasy creature. Having a dancing background is a plus, as stylized movement will be required for all parts.
