The Front Page!

I got a great write up about the theatre in the Littleton Independent. If you go to the website, you can play the crazy video that they shot of me, also. I was bumbling around about something or another---that's what happens when you don't know that they are video taping!
So, be sure to check it out here!

The auditions are going well so far---lots of talented kids out there! Of course, I am a bit panicked because there are four guy parts and we haven't had many try out----only one boy to be exact, so I am wondering if we might have to use a girl in a mans part. Its not the first time, right, girls?
Saturday is our last day of auditions---at 11:00 to 1:00, and I am hoping for a good turn-out. I will be posting the parts on next Tues., and e-mailing everyone about what they got at that time.

The first rehearsal is next Thurs.----at 4:00 p.m. I have changed the times a bit----because a lot of kids get home at 3:30 and I didn't want them to have to rush to get to rehearsal. So, the new time will be at 4:00 to 6:00 each Thursday.

Well, the next time I write, the cast will be chosen! Its going to be fun!
