AUDITIONS ANNOUNCED FOR SALLY COTTER AND THE CENSORED STONE
Tibbits Young Audiences will hold auditions for Sally Cotter and the Censored Stone at 5 pm August 22 and 23 at Tibbits Opera House.

There she meets Headmaster Albatross Underdrawers, Gamekeeper Ruebenon Ryebread, and Professor Shiftia Shape. But danger is lurking, and it’s up to Sally and her new friends Dave and Harmonica to defeat the schemes of the evil Lord Murderdeath. Will she become the hero like the one in her favorite series? And who is the mysterious Censor who keeps rewriting the story as it goes along? This loving parody will thrill fans and newcomers alike.
Auditions are open to any student in fourth through eighth grades. Students should be accompanied by a parent or guardian and bring a current, non-returnable photo. Students will be asked to introduce themselves from stage and read parts from the script. Audition forms are available online HERE.
