AUDITIONS FOR "SLEEPING BEAUTY" ARE MONDAY
LA CROSSE, Wis.—Auditions for the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of "Sleeping Beauty" will be held Monday, Oct. 18 from 4-6 p.m. at the Viterbo Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.
All area children, regardless of ability, are welcome to audition for this production. If selected, they will participate in a week of rehearsals in preparation for the show, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 23 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the Viterbo Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.
The production of "Sleeping Beauty" is based on the classic fairy tale in which a princess is condemned by an evil fairy at her christening to die on her sixteenth birthday from a prick on her finger. But a good fairy steps forth and declares that the princess will not die but only sleep, as will the rest of the kingdom, until she is awakened by the kiss of a prince.
