Auditions for "Once Upon a Mattress"

Yesterday I posted about the upcoming auditions for James and the Giant Peach, but a month later another First Stage show will be holding auditions for a classic musical comedy.

Here's the info:
Once Upon A Mattress

Director: Amy Browning
Musical Director: Chris Bowling
Choreographer: Melissa McGuffin

The company will soon have auditions for Once Upon a Mattress, the musical comedy adaptation of the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale The Princess and the Pea. The full-length play will feature 35 young actors from grades 6-12. No experience is necessary to audition.

Auditions Dates: Saturday, Aug. 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 29 from 2 to 5 p.m.

Location: Pea Ridge United Methodist Church

Actors should come with a 30 second audition song (accompanist, CD and tape player will be available) and be prepared to learn a short dance.

Rehearsals will begin September 2. The show, which will run two weekends at the Renaissance Center in Huntington, will open on Nov. 12.
