Synopsis: There is much more to this play than Jack and a beanstalk. Of course, there's the proverbial giant, but there is also the giant's overworked, over-wrought wife, an aria-singing harp, a golden-egg-laying chicken with performance anxiety, and a blue-eyed stranger who looks surprisingly like Jack's long-lost father.

Casting at TKA

The audition process at TKA is unique for the theatre world. We strive to give students an accurate representation of what a theatre audition would be like outside of school, but at the same time, we strive to make every student feel valued in the casting process.

Each student is a precious child of God whose identity is in Christ and not in the role they are asked to play. Additionally, despite the type of role students are given, we want students to know that every role in the show is important. 1 Corinthians 12 is an excellent example of how every member in the body of Christ is valued and needed.

Please read our adaptation of 1 Corinthians 12:14-27 as it can be applied to the casting process.

“Now the cast is not made up of one role but of many.  If the ensemble should say, "Because I am not a lead, I do not belong to the cast," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the cast. And if the singer should say, "Because I am not a dancer, I do not belong to the cast," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the cast.  If the whole cast were dancers, where would the singing be? If the whole cast were singers, where would the acting be? But in fact God has arranged the parts in the cast, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.  If they were all one part, where would the show be?  As it is, there are many roles, but one cast.  The leading roles cannot say to the dancers, "I don't need you!" And the dancers cannot say to the singers, "I don't need you!"  On the contrary, those parts of the cast that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, while our principals need no special treatment. But God has combined the members of the cast and has given greater honor to the roles that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the cast, but that its roles should have equal concern for each other. If one cast member suffers, every cast member suffers with them; if one cast member is honored, every cast member rejoices with them.”
