Aspiring actors and actresses should start limbering up for tryouts for a Children’s Theatre Company of South Dakota performance next week.
Children ages kindergarten through grade eight are encouraged to try out Monday, March 16, in the Chase County School auditorium at 4 p.m. Practices will be held all week after school, beginning at 3:45 p.m.
Performances of “Treasure Hunt” will be Saturday, March 21, at 2 and 7 p.m. The audience and cast are asked to use the main school entrance, as the Post Prom Party will be held in the cafeteria.
Written by Steven Bartholomew and Dan Workman, the musical explores what is of value in life. Is it gold, silver or diamonds?
When their club is threatened, the zany Mishmashers do their utmost to find the riches, described in a cryptic message, that will save their club.
The audience will follow these fearless—and sometime fearful—students as they venture into forests with dancing fireflies, waddle with the penguins to discover diamonds and outwit the scorpions and mountain trolls to discover the most valuable treasure of all.
Besides parts for students, there will also be openings for stage hands. The students will be directed by two members of the Children’s Theatre Company of South Dakota.
Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and $4 for students at the door. Chase County Area Arts Council members are admitted free. The CCAAC is sponsoring the event.
