Fort Scott High School Thespians announces auditions for “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” for children in kindergarten through eighth grade. Auditions are from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 13 or 14, in the high school auditorium.
Performances are at 2 and 7 p.m. on Dec. 9, and at 2 p.m. on Dec. 10. Rehearsals will mostly be from 5:30 until about 7:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday in the high school auditorium.
Roles include: Narrators, Grinch, Max the Dog, Cindy Lou Who, Lou Who, Betty Lou Who, Mayor of Whoville, Assistant to Mayor, Clerk, Shopper, Sue Who, Drew Who, Police Man and Whos. No preparation is necessary for auditions and actors only need to attend on one of the audition nights. Children will perform theatre warm-ups, read from the script, and sing and dance to a short song segment. The show is primarily a play, but does include two songs, including a solo from Cindy Lou Who.
Thespian Director Angie Bin will oversee the production with leadership from FSHS Thespians in all artistic director positions. The show serves as the major fundraiser for students attending the International Thespian Festival next summer in Lincoln, Neb. Those who are cast will have a $25 participation fee. Please contact Angie Bin at FSHS with questions.
