When I Grow Up Auditions
Please learn the following words for your audition.
When I grow up, I will be tall enough to reach the branches that I need to
Reach to climb the trees you get to climb when you're grown up.
And when I grow up, I will be smart enough to answer all the questions that
You need to know the answers to before you're grown up.
And when I grow up, I will eat sweets every day on the way to work and I
Will go to bed late every night.
And I will wake up when the sun comes up and I will watch cartoons until my
Eyes go square and I won't care because I'll be all grown up.
When I grow up
When I grow up, when I grow up, when I grow up, I will be strong enough to
Carry all the heavy things you have to haul around with you when you're a grown-up.
Michael, Bruce, Lavender, Amanda, Nigel, Eric, Alice, Hortensia, Tommy,
Teen Ensemble, Children's Ensemble
We are also in need of a small adult ensemble to play various roles. If you are interested in filling any of these roles please reach out to the stage manager.
