Event description

Description

AUDITIONS for the 2019 production of "Peter Pan"
Directed by Prairie Fire Children's Theatre.
Presented by Lakes Youth Theatre in association with
Pearson Lakes Art Center.

Who Can Participate:
Students in 3rd-8th Grade from Dickinson County who are available for every rehearsal from 4-8:15 pm Monday-Friday. This is a limited amount of rehearsal time, so participants are asked to not participate in sports, dance, or other activities for this one week commitment. An unexcused absense is cause to drop a participant from the show.

Where:
Pearson Lakes Art Center

Auditions:
Monday, October 14 beginning at 4:00 pm.
Cast will be announced at the end of the 2 hour audition around 6-6:30 pm; some will stay until 8:15 pm but most will be dismissed.

Practices:
Some cast will begin practicing right away Monday night, so plan to bring sack supper.
Other practices will take place Tuesday through Friday from 4:00-8:15 pm and cast brings sack suppers. No microwave or refrigeration available.

Performances & Tickets:
Saturday, October 19 at 2:00 and 5:00 pm. (Cast reports at 1 pm and stays there entire time). Performances are approximately 1.5 hours in length. Snacks and drinks are provided to cast between performances. Tickets will be through Pearson Lakes Art Center and will go on sale beginning Oct. 1st. Adults are $10, and youth under age 18 are $5.

The Show:
Fly away to Neverland in this original musical production! Up to 81 local children are needed to play the roles of Peter Pan, Wendy, John, Michael, Nana, Tinkerbelle, The Crocodile, The Pirates, The Lost Kids, and the other inhabitants of Neverland. Two professional actor/directors from Prairie Fire’s staff will direct the production and play the roles of Tiger Lil and Captain Hook.

Participation Fee:
To help cover the expenses of the event we are asking for a $10 participation fee for each participant. This fee helps in the cost to bring in PFCT, and will also include snacks for between performances on the 19th. This fee can be waived if necessary as we want all children to be able to participate. Payment should be made on the night of auditions and can be made payable to: Pearson Lakes Art Center. In the Memo, please write: LYT [Name of child(ren)].
