Do you know how to host a taco party? For DRAGONS? First, you make lots and lots of tacos. Then you put out the salsa, but make sure it's not spicy salsa! You don't want to know what happens then! Or do you? Bring the whole family out for this hilarious adaptation of the beloved children's book.

What: Dragons Love Tacos is a playful and funny family-show based on the popular children's book. The show will run from July 6th-23rd. Rehearsals will begin May 30th. Rehearsals will be afternoons and evenings. More scheduling information will be available in-person at auditions.

We will be looking to cast two casts of community kids ages 8-18 for the following roles:

How: Prepare a 30 second funny pantomime of you doing any activity of your choosing. Make your actions and choices very clear - the bigger the better! Also be prepared to show your favorite dance moves (dragons love dancing... and tacos of course).

To audition for the play, potential cast members must have had their first COVID vaccination by the audition date and must present their vaccine card upon registering that morning. Everyone cast in the show will be required to be fully vaccinated by the beginning of rehearsals on May 30th. BTE follows the current CDC guidance on what constitutes 'fully vaccinated' per age group.

Kathy Baas Sensory Friendly Performance

Join us on July 15th at 1:00pm for a FREE special performance! We will be implementing several modifications such as leaving house lights on, allowing audience members to talk and freely express themselves, permission to enter and exit the theatre as needed, reduced light and sound cues, warning of potentially intense scenes, access to a quiet room and more! Open to any audience members who feel these modifications would make the theatrical experience more enjoyable.
