The Girl with the Golden Locks enters the world of fairy-tale espionage and intrigue, where top-level spies take on the kingdom’s worst criminal masterminds. Agent Gold is the girl with the golden locks and the top agent at the FBI, that is, the Fairytale Bureau of Investigation. Her partners are a pair of sisters – Rose Red, known as Agent Red, and rookie agent Snow White. With a little help from Agent Wolf (her “mole”), Agent Gold and her team take on the biggest mission of their lives. They must save the kingdom from public enemy number one – the Three Bears. Facing dwarves and witches, porridge and magic beans, giants and double-agents, they have their work cut out for them as they race to stay one step ahead of the bears to save the kingdom.

Auditions are open to young actors currently in grades 4-12. No pre-registration is required. Actors should plan to arrive a few minutes early to fill out forms, and plan to stay for the duration of the audition. Auditioners only need to attend one of the general audition sessions (Tuesday 10/9 or Wednesday 10/10), and they do not need to prepare anything. Everyone should come dressed to move, and with long hair tied back. Auditions will consist of theatre and movement games, and some readings of scenes.
