Joining the Kaleido-Family!

Over the course of the year, many new talented individuals join the Kaleidoscope Theatre Family. Recently, a brand new cast of teens learned our award-winning production of B.U.L.L.Y. (Better Understanding by Listening or Learning about You). This school-touring show has been tremendously successful in teaching children how to deal with the bullying situations they encounter at school.

This is what one new cast member had to say about the experience of becoming a part of Kaleidoscope Theatre. Her name is Aurora and she played the roles of 'Lori' and 'Glinda the Good Witch' in her first show of B.U.L.L.Y. on Friday, February 15, 2008!

"Kaleidoscope Theatre was a really fun experience. I met some pretty awesome people. As soon as we met, we clicked. I always looked forward to rehearsals because I knew we'd have fun. The songs were my favorite part because they were upbeat. When we performed at the schools, I'll admit I was super nervous. But when we started, it seemed to flow. We all helped each other if we messed up a line or forgot a lyric. I'll always remember how much fun it was and I hope to work with Kaleidoscope again in the future!"

If you're interested in bringing B.U.L.L.Y. to your child's school, check out our online school-touring brochure.

If you're interested in joining the Kaleidoscope Theatre family, stay tuned! Audition information for our summer series will be coming shortly!
