BCA: Calling all young thespians

The Brewton Council of the Arts invites young vocalists and thespians to participate in the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of “Red Riding Hood” next week.

The search will begin Monday for some 60 students to feature in the production, which will take the stage on Sat., March 19, at the Jefferson Davis Community College auditorium.

“So that means that between Monday and Saturday, our very talented local children will be selected, learn their parts and put on a fabulous show for all of the community to see,” said local BCA member and show organizer Shea Smith.

Students in kindergarten through 12th grade are encouraged to audition for a spot.

The approximately two-hour long auditions will begin promptly at 3:30 p.m. on the JDCC stage Monday, Smith said.

Those chosen are expected to be at practice each afternoon from 3:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. Younger actors are usually finished by 5:30 p.m.

Costumes are provided for the show.

The public show will be held at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students age 6 and up. Children age 4 and 5 are $1. Those younger are free.
