COLDWATER – Tibbits Young Audiences will hold auditions for The Snow White Variety Show at 5 pm August 22 and 23 at Tibbits Opera House for the play to be presented October 19-21, 2018.
The Snow White Variety Show has all the fun of just about every TV-show genre imaginable jam-packed into this wild and fast-paced comedy! The audience becomes the live studio audience on a talk show, Real Talk with Fairytale Legends, where the seven dwarves tell the story of Snow White as the Fairytale Players bring it to life. As each new dwarf takes a turn telling part of Snow White’s famous story in his or her own unique voice, the players’ re-enactment shifts to match the style and personality of that particular dwarf. At any given moment, the story can be anything — romance, comedy, home improvement show, suspense, Western, epic poetry, mystery, cooking show, stand-up routine, or blockbuster action movie! There’s even a “Miss Fairest of Them All” beauty pageant! It all culminates in a mad-dash ending of fast-changing genres that sets the record straight on Snow White’s happily-ever-after.
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 as well as the portion of the script being read are available online at https://tibbits.org/about-tibbits/auditions/. Rehearsals will be held Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, but not all roles meet all days. The show will be presented October 19 and 20 at 7 pm and October 21 at 2 pm at Tibbits.
The Snow White Variety Show will be directed by Jayne Lillis and produced by Tirsha Odisher. Approximately 35-40 students will be cast. Students involved will learn characterization, blocking, costuming, makeup and all aspects of a stage production.
Tibbits Young Audiences offers programs both for and by area youth to develop their interest in the arts. Two shows yearly, a non-musical in the fall and a musical in the spring, provide students an enjoyable introduction to the world of theatre. By putting on a show, they learn teamwork, discipline, theatre skills, self confidence and an appreciation for the arts.
Tibbits Young Audiences presented Tied to the Tracks last spring with a cast of 49 area students. Auditions for the next show, The Snow White Variety Show, will be August 22 and 23 at 5 pm at Tibbits Opera House in Coldwater, MI.
