LCT Announces Auditions for Theatre for Youth Production, 'Dr. Evil and the Basket of Kittens'

La Crosse, WI – 04/10/19 – La Crosse Community Theatre will hold auditions for the youth production, Dr. Evil and the Basket of Kittens, on April 29 and 30, 2019, at 4:00 p.m. at Weber Center for the Performing Arts, 428 Front Street South, La Crosse, WI.

Dr. Evil wants to destroy the world, but when a basket of kittens arrives on his doorstep, it’s his world that is turned upside down. The Council of Evil is set to arrive for the unveiling of Dr. Evil’s latest weapon. If the Council finds him with the kittens, they may never support him. There is only one solution for Dr. Evil: destroy the kittens. You’ll be rooting for the little fur balls, but being bad has never been this much fun!

Dr. Evil and the Basket of Kittens will be directed by guest artist, Stacy Bruemmer. Stacy has been involved with children in some way, shape, or form for more than 20 years. She has been a part of children’s productions in Denver, CO, Lanesboro, MN, as well as in La Crosse. Stacy has worked in the Early Childhood Education field for nearly 21 years and has two children of her own. Currently, Stacy coordinates the Theatre Education program at LCT and has directed the Theatre for Young Audiences production the last two years. Stacy is in charge of summer camps at LCT and she has also been the “token adult” for the Theatre for Youth production since 2014. To say Stacy enjoys being around kids would be a great understatement!

Auditions are open for ages 8 to 18. There are roles available for boys and girls. A complete breakdown of roles available can be found online at www.lacrossecommunitytheatre.org/volunteer/audition. First-time auditionees are welcome—no experience necessary. Signing up for auditions is preferred, but walk-ins are welcome.
