Stuart Little auditions
Submitted By Renee Lorentzen
The City of Milpitas proudly presents Rainbow Theatre's auditions for "The Adventures of Stuart Little." Auditions are open to those 8-18 years of age and will be held Tuesday, January 24 -Wednesday, January 25 from 3:30 p.m. - 6 p.m. at the Milpitas Community Center. Come prepared to read from a provided script.
This is the endearing classic about a mouse named Stuart Little who is born into an ordinary New York family. All the charm, wisdom, and joy of the E.B. White original are captured in this adaptation by Joseph Robinette, who also dramatized the highly acclaimed stage version of "Charlotte's Web." The many adventures - both big and small - of Stuart Little are brought vividly to life in this theatre presentation. The acting ensemble plays many human and animal roles in a series of delightful scenes that make up the marvelous maneuverings of a mild-mannered mouse trying to survive in a "real people's world."
A participation fee of $150 ($100 for residents) is due at the time of auditions (checks made out to "City of Milpitas," no cash please). The fee will be refunded if not cast. An Audition Form is required and must be signed by a parent or legal guardian before the child may audition. Forms are available at the audition, or online at www.ci.milpitas.ca.gov in the Parks & Recreation Services' Rainbow Theatre section.
