Whatever became of Tamara Tomorrow? In the early seventies, this local television host, in her antennae and space suit, made cheery predictions of how exciting the future was going to be. Her sudden disappearance from the public eye was one of the great mysteries of the Philadelphia area. Three fans of Tamara, all grown up and disenchanted with the "future" as she predicted, decide to go in search of this "Delaware Valley Greta Garbo." What they find along the way teaches them more about themselves than they really thought they could know.
"…a nimble escapist comedy…sweet, tasty and inebriating…The radiantly sentimental ending might have been concocted by Frank Capra." —NY Times.
"…a sweet-tempered tale…a charming comedy about friendship, the future and an obsessive nostalgia for children's television shows of the past." —Associated Press.
"…a sentimental fable cloaked in flip, funny dialogue, with tart one-liners to offset the sugar…" —Wall Street Journal.
Parental Guidence Suggested.
A workshop for adults that will focus on using our bodies to fully communicate the text. Participants will work with excerpts from a variety of acting methods (Viewpoints, Suzuki, Uta Hagen, Classical, etc.) in effort to create a tool box of resources to aid the actor in developing characters that are fully realized not only intellectually but physically as well. Class size is limited to 10 students.

Robert Fulghum's "All I Really Need to Know, I Learned in Kindergarten"
Adapted by Ernest Zulia
Music by David Caldwell
Directed by Robyn LeGris
Kindergarten takes a funny, insightful, heartwarming look at what is profound in everyday life, and has earned standing ovations all over the world. This collection of delightful stories features colorful characters and celebrates our very existence, from the whimsy of childhood to the wisdom of old age. Based on the best –selling books by Robert Fulghum. Conceived and adapted by Ernest Zulia.
There will be some singing involved for a couple of the characters and the ensemble will sing the title song. (but if you can't sing that is ok too)
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script and we would also like you to tell a story from your life (real or imagined). The story can be funny, heartwarming, scary or dramatic, your choice, 1 to 3 minutes. If you are a singer, you can prepare a song to sing a cappella.
Please come prepared with a recent headshot (or photo), any scheduling conflicts, and acting resume if available.
Only one audition is required, but if you would like to come both days that is welcome too.
