Spring has sprung and some of our best volunteers are out working in their fields.
We continue to work on most Saturdays to get ready for the summer’s events. Come on a Saturday and help build, sort, paint, clean, serve lunch, whatever your specialty is!! We typically start at 10:00 and take a break at 11:30, with lunch served at 1:00. Call Luanne at 641-444-4220 for more information.
“Aladdin” is our summer show, scheduled for July 16-18 and 23-25, 2010. It’s an English Pantomime with lots of comedy, songs, slapstick stuff that kids love! (The best explanation I can think of for pantomime is this: like every English child, the boys from Monte Python probably grew up going to Pantomimes every Christmas.) There will always be a struggle between good and evil in a panto, along with a “Dame” (in this case, Aladdin’s mother) played by a man in woman’s clothes, slosh scenes (IE buckets of water!), audience participation (hissing the villain, cheering the hero and responses of “He’s behind you!” when the villain is sneaking up on the hero), a chorus of little dancers and singers, and it’s always based on a well-known fairy tale.
Auditions for Aladdin are Monday and Tuesday, May 10 and 11, at 7PM at the theatre in Rowan.
