By Hillary DePiano
Prince Tartaglia’s life is filled with misery until an evil witch and her equally evil henchmen curse him to search for three giant oranges. But this quest proves more fruitful than anyone could have imagined as a once-lonely prince discovers love, friendship, and laughter when he encounters wizards, monarchs, and a wild narrator who isn’t sure how far removed from the story he really is. All the raucous slapstick of the classic Commedia dell’Arte scenario by Carlo Gozzi is distilled into a fast-paced one-act.
There are 18 roles available (8 female, 6 male, and 4 non-gender-specific) for ages 10-18. Students are asked to prepare a short comedic monologue for their audition and will be asked to participate in a short-form improvisation game at the auditions.
