JOIN US FOR BKA’S PLAYS ON ZOOM SERIES: Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall by Brian D. Taylor.
This is a hilarious play that follows all of your favorite fairy tale characters (Snow White, the Evil Queen, Belle, The Beast, Cinderella and more) through a hilarious farce that is sure to be an incredible experience for all involved. There are great roles for students ages 8-18! Since this is a non-musical play, it is an excellent opportunity for all actors to be a part of an ensemble based comedy.
The focus of this project will be on creating honest, larger-than-life characters, comedic timing and script analysis-providing an excellent education on how to work in the new world of virtual theatre. This show will be live streamed on the performance days and will not require self taping.
Directed by BKA associate artistic director Brett Teresa!
Callbacks will be October 17 and 18. Time TBA.
Casting will be finalized by October 20, 2020 (limited to 30 artists ages 8-18, double casting for principals may occur).

Fairy tales may not have the magic of technology, but they do have magic! And through the wonders of the magic mirror, even fairy tales can come to life for the virtual stage!
The Evil Queen wishes to be fairest of them all. But when her Magic Mirror informs her that it is Snow White who is most fair, the queen is livid! When asked how to find the princess, her mirror mentions that Snow White has run away. The Evil Queen summons great magic in hopes of finding Snow White — she can now look through all mirrors throughout the kingdom. But there’s a catch... the magic also allows everyone else’s mirrors to show them what they most wish to see.
Best-selling fractured fairy tale playwright Brian D. Taylor creates storytelling magic with these magic mirrors, and it’s all written specifically for rehearsing and performing remotely! Rapunzel gets to talk with Prince Dashing, who’s outside of her tower, Beauty sees the Beast who has taken her father prisoner, and Cinderella, who just wants to dance at the ball, gets connected to her Fairy Godmother. And there’s plenty more fun! All these stories are moving toward their happily ever afters while the Evil Queen is hunting down Snow White, and you can guess that one will have a happy ending, as well!
Please fill out this audition form by October 15, 2020 and you will be informed about callbacks for the weekend of October 17-18.
