Itsy Bitsy: Confessions of an Eight-Legged Washout

Directed by Charlotte Nixon
May 2019

You’ve heard of Itsy Bitsy, the spider. 
You’ve heard of Jack-Be-Nimble, the candle-jumper.
You’ve heard of Little Miss Muffett, the tuffet-sitter.
But the true stories of these famous characters are ones you definitely have not heard… until now.
Join us as these characters and more get a chance to tell their true stories for the first time.
A fun-filled performance, suitable for all ages, touring to Calgary Public Libraries and presented in our 2019 Cannonball Festival at West Village Theatre in May, 2019!

Interested in auditioning for Itsy Bitsy?

How do I audition?

Simply sign-up for a time-slot by clicking HERE, and start working on a monologue that you can perform for our director.  The monologue can be from a play, or something you make up, or something you find on the internet!  Keep it 1-2 minutes in length.  Auditions will be held at our studio in the basement of 1703 1st Street NW (the Unitarian Church of Calgary).

Who can audition?

Any child age 8-14 can audition!  No experience necessary.

Is there a cost for this program?

Yes, there is a tuition of $300 for this program.  CYPT never wants finances to be a barrier for kids, though, so if the program fee is any difficulty at all, please feel free to apply for a bursary to help cover the cost.  Email for more information.

When does this program begin?

Auditions will be held February 4.  Rehearsals will take place from March 20 – May 18, on Wednesday nights (6-8:30pm) and Saturday afternoons (12-5pm) at the new Seton library.  Performances will happen from May 18 – June 1, including multiple performances at Calgary Public Libraries across the city and at CYPT’s Cannonball Festival of Theatre at West Village Theatre.
