Seeking Children for FUN HOME

Post Date: Nov 1, 2017

Arden Theatre Company (LORT D) is seeking submissions for young performers for their production of FUN HOME by Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron, based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel (Terrence J. Nolen, Director).

We are seeking performers for the following roles:

Small Alison, around 9 years old. Precocious and opinionated; on the cusp of finding herself and forming her own views on how a girl her age should behave and dress; confident and intelligent; strong singer who can move seamlessly in vocal quality from speech to song, natural sound.

Christian, around 10 years old. Alison’s older brother; oldest of the three children; strives to be the leader, but is sometimes overshadowed by Alison’s strong personality; seeking a strong singer (pre-pubescent) with a natural sound, good sense of harmony and pitch.

John, around 6 years old. Alison’s younger brother. Like most boys his age, he is full of energy with a quirky imagination; looks up to his siblings; seeking a strong singer with a natural sound, good sense of harmony and pitch.





  • The first rehearsal for FUN HOME is April 24.  We rehearse Tuesdays through Sundays with rehearsal times not yet set as we want to cast the children first.  However, this is a professional production and will require the young performers to miss some school.
  • Arden Theatre runs an 8-show week with performances beginning May 17, and the production scheduled to run through June 24 with a possible extension to July 1.
