Metro Theater Company is currently accepting audition submissions through Friday, February 26, 2021 for The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show/La Oruga Muy Hambrienta Espectáculo, a bilingual puppet production based on the books by Eric Carle and created by Jonathan Rockefeller. All positions are paid.

Callbacks will take place over zoom with Director, Julia Flood, and Puppet Choreographer, Jamie McKittrick.

This production will have both live, outdoor, socially distant, in-person audiences and a video recorded indoor performance for virtual audiences in schools throughout the region.

Because we cannot currently hold auditions in person, we will be conducting all preliminary casting via video submissions.

Please send us links to two short videos, each no longer than one minute.

• Video 1 - Introduction Video. Please help us discover a little bit about who you are as an artist and person, in one minute or less. You can recite a favorite poem, talk about a favorite place, tell us what you like to do, or tell us what you are most looking forward to when the pandemic is over. Anything that helps us know who you are. If you would like to do a part of your introduction in Spanish, all the better.

• Video 2 - Audition Video. Set your camera up in such a way that we can see all of you from head to toe. Choose a one-minute section of music that you love. Begin in a neutral standing position. Play the music and use the entire minute to move from a standing position, down to the ground (staying in the frame of your camera), and back up to a standing position. Have fun!
