Auditions for the Rend Lake College 2005 Kids Musical, “Tumbleweeds,“ will be held Saturday, April 2, on the Ina campus for area youth ages 8-16.
Tryouts will begin at 1 p.m. in the RLC Theatre and will continue until all present have had an opportunity to showcase their talents. The musical comedy is scheduled May 19-22, with rehearsals planned Monday-Thursday evenings and some Saturday afternoons.
“The Old West was never this funny!” according to Director Tracey Webb.
Those wishing to audition should come prepared to perform one verse and one chorus of a song that will demonstrate the singer’s range and skills, the accompanying sheet music or karaoke CD or tape and expect to be asked to execute a few dance steps and “cold-read” from the script.
The thespian-hopefuls also should bring a personal photograph with them, as well as a pen in order to fill out an application form.
“Tumbleweeds” is scheduled at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, May 19-21, in the RLC Theatre and for a 2 p.m. matinee Sunday, May 22.
Rehearsals are planned Monday through Thursday evenings (6:30-8:30) and some Saturday afternoons.
