LCT Announces Auditions for the Theatre for Youth Production, ‘Ramona Quimby’
La Crosse, WI – 04/02/18 – La Crosse Community Theatre will hold auditions for the Theatre for Youth production, Ramona Quimby, on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, at 4:00 p.m. at Weber Center for the Performing Arts, 428 Front Street South, La Crosse, WI.
Beezus, our narrator, introduces us to the Quimby family and friends in this collection of vignettes that trace her little sister Ramona’s tumultuous passage through third grade. Ramona is usually either aggravating her older sister, getting into trouble, or “making a big, noisy fuss” when things don’t go her way. Although Ramona and Beezus don’t always get along, they come to realize that amazing things can happen when families stick together.
Ramona Quimby will be directed by guest artist, Grace V. Riness. Riness has been involved in several LCT productions, beginning with The Little Mermaid. Her appearances have included Billy Elliot, Titanic, and Peter and the Starcatcher. She was the assistant director for the past two Theatre for Youth shows, Bridge to Terabithia and Aladdin, Jr., as well as And Then They Came For Me. Grace has been a student at Western Technical College since 2014 and will graduate with her Digital Media Productions degree in 2018. She is grateful for all that LCT has offered her and proud to have found a home on its stage.
