Jiminy and Cricket Auditions

Auditions for the student written and directed play "Jiminy and Cricket". An abridged version of this show was performed at Scituate High School during the Student Directed Festival on May 3rd, where it won best show and best directing. Looking for actors in high school through college. Experienced or not, all are welcome to try out. Contact Hayden Startzell at 781-974-0037 for access to a Google Form to sign up for an audition slot.

"Jiminy and Cricket" is a comedy about two soldiers in the Vietnam War who, mainly out of sheer boredom and annoyance, attempt to lead their fellow soldiers down a path in order to get them discharged. The show has a varied cast of characters and each one adds their own ridiculous element to this surrealist take on soldier life in 1968.
