Auditions set for children’s Christmas production
PRINCETON — Auditions for this year’s Prairie Arts Council’s children’s Christmas musical are set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday and 3 p.m. Sunday at the PAC theater, 24 Park Ave. East, Princeton. Children may audition either time.
The show will take place the weekend of the Princeton Christmas Walk, Nov. 15-18. Auditions are open to children in third through eighth grades; select second-graders may be cast as well, so second graders with a strong desire to perform and an ability to follow direction are welcome to audition. Children will be asked to sing “Jingle Bells” and “America the Beautiful.” Those interested in a speaking role will be provided with a scene selection at the audition.
This year’s Christmas show, “The Meaning of the Star,” written especially for PAC’s young actors by local playwright Rachel Gorenz, is a delightful story of a family of children who complain about their grandfather coming for Christmas because he never plays with them or pays attention to them. The oldest child remembers how much their grandmother loved Christmas, and how she made snow angels with her and made their time together at Christmas extra special. Grandpa overhears the children complaining, and the children are in big trouble with their mother.
