‘Seussical’ Casting Call Seeks Best ‘Baby Elephant Bird’

Big Stage Productions will hold auditions from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday

Big Stage Productions, Santa Barbara’s newest youth theater production company, will present its 2012 spring musical Seussical, a fantastical, musical extravaganza geared for families.

Show dates are June 1-3 at the Marjorie Luke Theatre.

Big Stage Productions is looking for Santa Barbara’s smallest new star to be cast as its Baby Elephant Bird in Seussical.

Bring your 3- to 6-year-old to audition between 10 a.m. and noon this Saturday, May 5 at La Cumbre Plaza (outside Macy’s).

Actors should come dressed up in their version of an Elephant Bird and be prepared to show the directors their best “tweet-tweet.” The winner will be cast in the show.

Commitments will include being part of both a technical and a dress rehearsal at the Marjorie Luke Theater during the last week in May and being part of up to four shows, June 1-3.

A $20 nonrefundable audition fee secures an audition time for participant auditions.

For more information, call 805.708.8897.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
