Missoula Children's Theater will conduct auditions for "Pinocchio" Monday at Tahoe Valley Elementary School. Performances will take place July 23 in the South Tahoe Middle School multipurpose room.

Tahoe Arts Project will be holding auditions for Missoula Children’s Theater production of “Pinocchio” from 10 a.m. to noon Monday at Tahoe Valley Elementary School, 943 Tahoe Island Drive.

Those auditioning should arrive at 10 a.m. and plan to stay for the full two hours. Some of the cast members will be asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the auditions. There is no cost for auditions and no cost for your child to participate in the play if selected. Among the approximately 60 roles to be cast are Pinocchio, The Blue Fairy, Jiminy Cricket, The Fox and Cat, Candlewick and Crew, Urchins, Pleasure Isle Kids, Puppets and Toys. Assistant directors will also be cast to aid in rehearsals throughout the week and to take on essential backstage responsibilities.

All children ages 5 to 17 are encouraged to audition. No advance preparation is necessary. It is very important that each child be available for all rehearsals and performances. Rehearsals will take place throughout the week from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. (depending on the part) at Tahoe Valley Elementary School.

There is no guarantee everyone who auditions will be cast in the play. Parents should discuss this with their child. Missoula Children’s Theater touring productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props and makeup.

Performances will be at 3 and 7 p.m. July 23 at the South Tahoe Middle School multipurpose room. Admission is $7 for adults and $3 for children and seniors.

The Missoula Children’s Theater residency is brought to you by Tahoe Arts Project, a nonprofit organization. For more information call Tahoe Arts Project at (530) 542-3632.
