LCT to hold audition for youth production “Sideways Stories from Wayside School”

La Crosse Community Theatre is holding auditions for its Theatre for Youth production of Sideways Stories at Wayside School on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 28 and 29, 2015, at 7 p.m. at Weber Center for the Performing Arts, 428 Front Street South, La Crosse, WI.

Actors ages 8 to 17 are invited to audition, regardless of experience. Scheduled auditions are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome. Call 784-9292 to sign up to audition!

The audition for this production will ask youth to participate in theatre games and improv activities and demonstrate their ability to speak before a crowd. There will be no readings or any other preparation required. The cast list will be announced at noon on Friday, May 1. Rehearsals will begin May 4. The rehearsal schedule will be determined upon casting, but tentatively will be 4 to 6 p.m., Mondays through Fridays.

Performances will be in Weber Center’s Lyche Theatre June 12-21, 2015, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:00 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. Anyone not cast (or who is otherwise interested) is invited to help in some other way.

In this delightfully demented comedy about the strangest school ever built, the students of Wayside School battle supernatural teachers, endure madcap lessons, and have more fun in class than the law should allow! Sideways Stories from Wayside School is based on the best-selling series of novels by Louis Sachar, the Newbery Award-winning author of Holes, and adapted for the stage by John Olive.
