Auditions for Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre’s original musical adaptation of Sleeping Beauty will be held on Monday, June 4, 1-3 p.m. at the Sleepy Eye High School Auditorium.
The Golden Age of Hollywood comes to life in this over the top version of the classic tale. Set on a movie set in the 1930’s, everything that can go wrong does!
Up to 74 local young people are needed to play the roles of Rose, Mallory, Colin, Eugene, Becki, Gwen, Julia, Anna and the rest of the Movie Stars; The Director, Assistant Director, Producer, Cameraman, Assistant Cameraman, Make-Up Girl, Soundman, Dance Coach, Sheep Wrangler, Coffee Girl, Chauncy, Chancy, Chintzy, The Reporter, The Henchmen and The Sheep. Two professional actors/directors from Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre’s staff will direct the production and play the roles of the bumbling Hypnotist, and The Queen Diva of all Stage Mothers.
Auditions are open to anyone age 7 and older. The audition process lasts up to two hours and all auditioners are required to be in attendance the complete time. Rehearsals will be held from 1 to 5:15 p.m. the remainder of the week. Technical assistants will be needed by Wednesday to run lights and sound.
Performances are scheduled for Friday, June 8, 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 9, 10 a.m. at the Sleepy Eye High School Auditorium. Tickets for the performance are available at the door one hour before show time.
