Auditions for our next production

Miller Center – 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.


As one of the first to portray child characters as smart, strong, and complex while they work through real life challenges, this gifted playwright brilliantly captures the contemporary theatrical fantasies of a little girl named Ellie in this dramatization that has been electrifying audiences of children and adults in both professional and amateur productions.

10 year old Ellie Murphy has been living happily with her widowed father, Max, bowling, eating TV dinners and playing with junk. But now, suddenly life is different. Max has remarried, and Ellie has a stepmother. Ellie and her imaginary friends, Lana and Frizbee, launch into a fantasy world as Ellie seeks to escape real-life problems. Only by running away and discovering what it is really like to be alone does Ellie begin to come to terms with herself and her own need for a mother.  With so many children being raised by single parents and mixed families, this is a show that is both entertaining and immensely relatable for all ages.
