One More Chance to Audition for "Once Upon a Mattress"

This weekend I helped sign up young actors to audition for the First Stage Theatre production of Once Upon a Mattress.

We had some amazingly talented actors show up - but as always (and this is true for every community theatre group), there were a lot more girls than guys trying out.

Since the directing team still needs a few more guys to round out the cast, they're holding one more day of auditions this week. The auditions are open to any students in grades 6-12. No experience is necessary to audition.

Auditions will be held Tuesday, August 31 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at the Pea Ridge United Methodist Church. Actors should come with a 30-second audition song (an accompanist and a CD/tape player will be available) and be prepared to learn a short dance.

Once Upon a Mattress is 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.

The show will be presented at the Renaissance Center in Huntington Nov. 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20 and 21.
