We are seeking children ages 7-14 NO TALLER than 5 foot for any roles. The following roles are open to anyone regardless of gender:
L. RON HUBBARD: The charismatic leader of Scientology. A showman.
DONALD: L Ron’s friend, later becomes a serious lawyer.
FEATURED ROLES: We are most importantly seeking diversity of different racial backgrounds, body type and ability. We’re looking for children that bring something special and unique with comic ability to play a wide variety of roles throughout the show from space Alien overlords to Scientology celebrities like Tom Cruise. All of these roles will get a time to “shine” and have solo moments.
