Children’s Show Auditions Thursday

The annual children’s show, for actors elementary age through junior high, will be a new locally written musical, The Deep Blue Sea. The show is a comedic look at some of the stranger life forms in the ocean. Creators and directors are Rick and Sheryl Scheffert


The children’s show is an opportunity for actors in kindergarten through eighth grade to shine. Everyone who auditions will be in the show. Everyone who wants lines to speak will have them.  Everyone who wants to sing a solo will be allowed to do so. There is no pressure to do either of those things. Some actors prefer to be in the chorus. Auditions help the director assign parts appropriately.


Rehearsals will be Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.. The week of performances, rehearsals will be longer, running 5:15-7:30, and will include a Wednesday rehearsal. Performance dates are October 20-23, with evening performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:00, and a Sunday matinee at 2:00.
