Ensemble Auditions Aug. 12 For Ages 10-17; “Dragon” Auditions Aug. 19 For Ages 10-Adult
The city of Las Vegas Rainbow Company Youth Theatre will hold auditions on two Saturdays in August for its Student Ensemble and its first fall show, “The Reluctant Dragon.”
Youth ages 10-17 are eligible to audition for the Rainbow Company Student Ensemble Saturday, Aug. 12, at 1 p.m. at the Charleston Heights Arts Center located at 800 S. Brush St. There is no cost to audition but there is a $50 annual fee if accepted into the company.
No preparation is necessary; the audition is improvisation. All participants will be at the audition until about 3 p.m., and near that time, some students will be released. Students must be at least 10 years old on the day of the audition. Ensemble members learn all aspects of technical theatre as well as performance skills. Not for the faint of heart when it comes to a demanding time commitment, the Ensemble member is expected to participate in the four annual Rainbow Company productions (be it backstage or onstage), to attend weekly meetings and take classes. This program is for the serious theatre student. Call 702-229-ARTS (2787) for more information.
Residents ages 10 to adult are invited to audition for the Rainbow Company production of “The Reluctant Dragon” Saturday, Aug. 19, at 1 p.m. at the Charleston Heights Arts Center. There is no cost to audition. No preparation is necessary; the audition is improvisation. All participants will be at the audition until about 3 p.m., and near that time, some people will be released. In this play, the village of Guildermere blames the dragon who lives upon the downs for anything that goes sour in their lives. But this dragon is a peace-loving, poetry-spouting fellow who would much prefer a cup of tea to a battle. Rehearsals will begin Aug. 21 and there will be seven performances Sept. 22-Oct. 1 at the Charleston Heights Arts Center. Call 702-229-ARTS (2787) for more information.
