Bellevue Society for the Arts
Children’s theater auditions slated for this month
Jun 9, 2018 at 2:00 PM
BELLEVUE — In an attempt to prove that Aesop was history’s greatest fabulist, a group of storytellers cracks the spine of a massive edition of “Aesop’s Fables,” releasing the old man’s most memorable characters into the theater.
The Tortoise, the Hare, the Hart, the Vines, the Simpletons, the Fox, the Lion, the Mouse and a certain golden egg-laying Goose all take the stage, delightfully re-imagined; the Tellers alternate between narrating and joining the action. Bristling with comic energy, this play caters to a large cast and is perfect for audiences of all ages.
Sponsored by Bellevue Kiwanis and Bellevue Lions Club, open auditions for “Aesop, Come Back” will be held at 7 p.m. June 18 and 19 at the Bellevue Society for the Arts, 205 Maple St., Bellevue. Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 10 and 11, and at 2:30 p.m. Aug. 12.
Bellevue Society for the Arts’ Children’s Theatre is open to all children ages 7 to 12 in any school system. They must be 7 years old by June 18 and no older than 12 years old by Aug. 12.
