Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Lake Country Children’s Theater is sorry to inform you that Prairie Fire Theater had to cancel their June 13th-18th visit to perform Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Arrowhead due to a lack of staffing. We hope to be able to bring this fantastic summer show to you in 2023.
Lake Country Children’s Theater announces auditions for Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre’s original musical production of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. This is LCCT’s 21st summer production sponsorship and 73 students will be needed. The commitment is one week.
This adaptation promises to be fun for old and young alike, and continues Prairie Fire’s tradition of retelling the classics with a twist. Snow White is saved by the Prince, but not with a kiss! There is a great deal of music, including production numbers featuring The Townspeople and a lot of movement highlighted by the Queen’s Spellbinders and the Forest Creatures.
Auditions for students ages 7 through 18 will be held on Monday, June 13th at noon at Arrowhead High School North Campus Theater, 800 North Avenue, Hartland. Registration will take place at that time with auditions to follow. Registration is limited to 120 auditioning students on a first-come, first-served basis. No registration will be allowed before noon. Lake Country Children’s Theater is charging a $50 fee per cast member to defray the cost of the production. The fee will be collected at registration before the audition. Anyone not cast in the show will be refunded the fee after the audition. This is the only condition by which the fee may be refunded. The audition process lasts at least two hours and all those auditioning are required to be in attendance the entire time. No preparation is necessary to audition.
The cast will be announced at the end of the approximately two hour audition. A portion of the cast will be required to stay following auditions for a rehearsal until 4:45 pm. Parents are welcome but not required to stay and watch the process. There is a lot of information covered before the audition begins which parents may want to hear. Students will be cast in the roles of Snow White, The Prince, The Seven Dwarfs, The Mirror, The Ravens, The Spellbinders, The Forest Creatures and the Townspeople. Two professional actors from Prairie Fire will direct the show and will also portray the Huntsman and the Evil Queen.
REHEARSALS: Rehearsals will be held from 12:30 to 4:45 p.m. on Tuesday, June 14th through Thursday, June 16th, and 3:30 p.m. until curtain time on Friday, June 17th. Tuesday’s rehearsal will require half of the cast for the first 2 hours and the other half of the cast for the last 2 hours, which is dictated by the assigned role of the student. Attendance is mandatory at each rehearsal.
PERFORMANCES: Performances are Friday, June 17th at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, June 18th at 2:00 p.m. at Arrowhead’s theater. Tickets for the performances are $6 each and will be available at Hartland Piggly Wiggly the week of June 13th and at the door.
Lake Country Children’s Theater is pleased to sponsor this annual week long residency program featuring local students.
