Open to ages 8 to 19, “Rainbow Crow” by Rhiana Yazzie is produced by Stepping Stone Theatre for Young Audiences. We encourage children and youth with or without experience to audition. Our auditions are open to actors of all races, cultures, sizes, and abilities. Try it, it’s fun! Our auditions are held in groups and are friendly toward novice actors, but we are looking for performers with a variety of experience levels. No preparation is necessary for the audition. Directors will lead audition groups through a variety of activities during the 1/2 hour audition. Most of our productions have acting, singing and dancing, and those are a part of the auditions.
