From the Director
Based on the beloved children’s novel, A Wrinkle in Time follows the epic quest of Meg and Charles Wallace Murry to find their father. With the help of their new friend, Calvin, and a trio of magical, supernatural beings, their journey takes them across the universe to battle forces of evil. Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin are tested to their limits and must embrace their flaws and faults to gain Father’s release. A tale of courage and bravery, A Wrinkle in Time shows us that we don’t need to be perfect to do amazing things.
Please prepare a contemporary serious/serio-comedic monologue of two minutes or less.
Meg Murry: Awkward and unpopular; uses her faults to become the heroine. 13 years old.
Five actors will play the additional characters including:

Calvin O’Keefe: Meg’s new friend; popular in school, but neglected at home. 14 years old.
Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, & Mrs. Which: Appear as elderly women; revealed to be ancient beings who assist the children on their quest. Billions of years old.
Additional roles: Mother, Father, Aunt Beast, Citizens of Camazotz
