Auditions for AGL's A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's Scientology Pageant
AGL's Artistic Director Eric Seale announces auditions will be held February 12 and 13 (at 2pm) for this April show. Here's the information:
A jubilant cast of children celebrate the controversial religion in uplifting pageantry and song. The actual teachings of The Church of Scientology are explained and dissected against the candy-colored backdrop of a traditional pageant play.
A VERY MERRY UNAUTHORIZED CHILDREN'S SCIENTOLOGY PAGEANT is a musical biography of the life of L. Ron Hubbard, with child-friendly explanations of Hubbard's notion of the divided mind and a device called the e-meter, used to monitor the human psyche, which is demonstrated by stick puppets.
Grade school children, portraying Tom Cruise, Kirstie Alley, John Travolta, and other less starry Scientologists, bring the controversial Church of Scientology to jubilant life in story and song.
