IVT sets auditions for its next three shows

Ever wanted to be in a show? Love seeing plays? Now you can be part of the fun by joining Indian Valley Theatre at auditions for the next three shows in their season.

Auditions for all three shows will be held in the Community Room at the Sandwich Opera House, 140 E. Railroad St. in Sandwich, and are open to the public.

Be prepared to sing a short song a capella and do a cold reading from the script. No appointment is necessary and IVT membership is not required to audition, although it is required if you are cast.

Audition forms may be downloaded prior to auditioning on IVT’s website, www.indianvalleytheatre.com.

The first show is “Scrooge: The Radio Musical.” Auditions will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 23 and from 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 24.

In this hit radio musical adaptation of Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol,” Ebenezer Scrooge is the definition of a miser.

He is rich, but stingy with his money, and he exploits the good nature of his employee Bob Cratchit.

On Christmas Eve, however, Scrooge is in store for a rude awakening when the ghost of his old business partner informs him that he is going to be visited by three ghosts, including the Ghosts of Christmas Past and Present.

Performances will be Dec. 7-9.

The second show is “Beauty and the Beast Jr.” Auditions will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept 15 and from 5 to 8 p.m. Sept. 17 and are open specifically to boys and girls 7 to 18 years old. 

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under a spell. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out.

With many fun supporting roles allowing students to play objects inside the castle, this “tale as old as time” is filled with spectacular costume and set opportunities.

Performances will be Jan. 18-20 (with a school show on Jan. 18).

The third show will be “Don’t Hug Me: County Fair.” Auditions will be from 1 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Sept 16.

It’s summer and the Bunyan County Fair is approaching, the biggest thing that’s happened in Bunyan Bay since the winter carnival snowplow parade. This year, the Bunyan County Fair means one thing to Gunner and Clara Johnson, owners of a little bar called The Bunyan: The Miss Walleye Queen Competition.

Bernice, the pretty waitress, sees this as her big chance to win Miss Walleye Queen, to be discovered and more important, to have her face carved in butter at the Minnesota State Fair.

The trouble begins when Gunner’s wife, Clara, decides she also wants to win Miss Walleye Queen. Bigger trouble arrives when Gunner’s estranged twin sister, Trigger, shows up to try to win the beauty pageant.

Performances will be for two weekends: March 1-3 and March 8-10, 2019.
