Would you like to be a part of an NTPA production? For many of our shows, your journey to “take the stage” starts by signing up for an NTPA Audition. These auditions are intended to align a student’s desires, experience and talents with the Director’s vision for each of these roles in a show. Our auditions are hosted by at least two theatre professionals who will provide a positive and constructive learning experience in a friendly and supportive environment.
If you are thinking about signing up your first audition but aren’t sure what to expect, you might consider attending a FREE UpSTARt Workshop which is a fast-paced, high-energy, and fun-filled two-hour workshop designed to our future actors the confidence and training to “take the stage” in their first audition.
Magic Tree House: The Knight at Dawn KIDS is an adaptation of the second of Mary Pope Osborne’s award-winning fantasy adventure books from the Magic Tree Housebook series, which has sold more than 100 million copies and is available in more than 100 countries around the world. This time around, Jack and Annie’s tree house takes them to an age of knights in shining armor, where the two discover the power of hope and the true meaning of gallantry.
The two siblings, Jack and Annie, return to visit the magic tree house. As they read a book about knights and the middle ages, Annie is intrigued by the Black Knight and the mysterious quest one must successfully complete before becoming a knight. When she wishes to visit the castle in the book, the siblings are whisked away to medieval times. They set off to learn more about the Black Knight and his quest, experiencing a grand medieval feast, escaping through secret tunnels and dancing with enchanted suits of armor, all in an effort to find their way back home.
Book by Jenny Laird. Music & Lyrics by Randy Courts. Additional Lyrics by Will Osborne. Based on “Magic Tree House #2: The Knight at Dawn” by Mary Pope Osborne.
