"Comic Book Artist" auditions set at Phipps

The Phipps Children's Theater will hold auditions for area students in grades 7 through 9 for the spring production of "The Adventures of a Comic Book Artist," with book and lyrics by Pat Lydersen, and music by Wendy Woolf, on Tuesday and Thursday, Feb. 26 and 28 at 6 p.m. in the Black Box Theater of The Phipps Center for the Arts. Callbacks will be held on Friday, March 1, at 6 p.m.

All will be asked to read from the script, do some improvisation, and sing a few bars from a song of their choice. Sheet music should be provided for the accompanist, if possible. Those auditioning should dress for movement and bring a list of conflicts they may have during the rehearsal period.

Rehearsals will be held most weekdays, except Wednesdays, and some weekends, beginning March 4. Six performances will be given May 2-7 on Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m., Saturday at 2 and 7 p.m., Sunday at 2 p.m., and a school matinee on Tuesday.
