To discourage “no show” audition reservations, NTPA will charge a “No Show Fee” of $15.00 for 6-12th grade productions to those students that commit and then skip their audition time slots.  A reminder will be sent via email at least two weeks prior to the audition, and the student can change or cancel their audition time slot up to 24 hours prior to the audition without incurring a fee.


Simon Says is a hilarious 90’s sitcom filmed in front of a live studio audience about the drama of middle school, the responsibility of family, and the importance of friendship. First day of middle school is off to a great start at Rothenbaum Middle school – until the gaping mouth to the underworld unfurls behind the school bringing actual demon Tylen Satanson to the human realm – along with a multitude of problems. Will Simon have enough time to Full House everyone’s problems before they get Pam Tanner’d?
Join this wacky cast of characters:
Simon James: the protagonist; under-developed, skilled at exposition
Tylen Satanson: Yakko Warner meets Freakazoid, but from the underworld
Jordan Rothenbaum: a late bloomer in a serious relationship with his chat room girlfriend
Devon Yearly: Pastor’s kid. Always watched; always watching.
Gretchen Ridgeback: What lacketh she in brawn, certainly maketh up in thew.
Gaelyn Nizzar O’Poccobara Jones: His lunch sack is full of crushed black radish, thieves oil in pill form, and the tears of his ancestors
Maranatha Sweet: Simon is her only friend because she doesn’t have to worry about him falling in love with her.
Danielle Tristar: Simon’s chat room girlfriend
Lorelle Potholder: Devon’s chat room girlfriend
