Little Theatre of Owatonna (LTO) has announced auditions for its 2021 Summer production of Frumpled Fairy Tales by William Springer.
The auditions will take place on Saturday, June 5th from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm and Sunday, June 6th from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm at the Sharon Stark Audition at West Hills. Sarah Friesen is the director and Sandee Hardy-Hagen the technical director.
Puns and pratfalls abound in this fun, frumpled version of three Grimm fairy tales. And with the help of a narrator, the audience can cheer the heroes and boo the villains. In “Rumpelstiltskin,” a greedy king, a miller’s daughter and a comical chap named Rumpelstiltskin all mix together in the story of gold spinning and name guessing. In “Rapunzel,” a witch puts lovely Rapunzel in a tower where a handsome prince rescues her. But the standard happy ending is reached in anything but a standard way. In “Red Riding Hood,” Little Red finally escapes the long-winded warnings of her mother only to meet up with a “cool” wolf.
LTO is looking to cast 16 young people ages 8 years to 16 years old.
Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. July 16th and 23rd with matinee performances at 2 p.m. July 17th, 18th, 24th and 25th. Please note the time change on the Saturday performances, for this production they are matinees.
Frumpled Fariy Tales is presented by arrangement with Eldridge Plays and Musicals.
